I know lineup order doesn't really matter too much (of course, more at bats help), but does batting Carlos Santana in front of Lindor cap some of Lindor's upside for stolen bases?
Dan Szymborski
2:26
It has to essentially be the times that Santana is exactly on first *and* Lindor gets exactly to first and doesn't advance Santana to third
Sam

How much auction value is there left in Jose Reyes? Still SS eligible, steals the odd bag, and will get reps with David Wright essentially in traction
Dan Szymborski
2:27
His SS eligibility makes him interesting.

Mike Trout went from +21 DRS in 2012 to -11 in 2013, that's got to be one of the biggest single season dumps ever?
Dan Szymborski
2:27
Defensive measures are volatile

Will PC ever get a real baseball video game series again(non-sim)?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
I'd hope so, but Sony doesn't seem good and who else has a real baseball game IP right now?
2K had that exclusive and their versions were way worse than Sony's.
2:29
And even with that license I believe expired, it takes years to put together and engine, etc, and there may not be enough players to make it worthwhile, or at least that's what htey think

I suck so far, but appears to have potential

Why does ZIPs have Edwin Diaz projected for 80 innings? In a sampling, he was by far the highest closer total.
Dan Szymborski
2:29
Don't take playing time projectionst oo seriously

Does Raul Mondesi offer any value now that he has been named starting 2b? Seems like most of his prospect ratings were based on defense.
Dan Szymborski
2:29
No

which of the following yankees finishes with the most hrs this year? bird, gary sanchise, or judge?
Dan Szymborski
2:29
I'll say Sanchez.

Reports out of Nationals camp say Harper has been seen with a 1B Glove and taking some reps. Is this to prepare for another Zimmerman injury or an "injury"?
Dan Szymborski
2:30
I think for a real injury. If they were going to "injury" him I think they would've made better palns over the offeseason

Do you think there was any time when the announcers said "The juice is loose" when Chad Ogea came in?
Evil Goatee Dan
2:30
Re: "Thought about" questions. I like to send four or five a chat and hope to get one or two answered. But don't forget Chad Ogea won two World Series games against Kevin Brown!

Was Chris Sabo the Lance Storm of baseball?
Dan Szymborski
2:30
heh
Not with those goggles
Chris Sabo was the Lodi of baseball?
James Shields
2:30
Chances he returns anywhere near close to career number form with CWS?
Dan Szymborski
2:30
There's always a chance, but he's been looking toasty
Kirbyyyyyyy Pucket!

How soon do you see Moncada coming up? Do you think he will be a force right away?
Dan Szymborski
2:31
I wouldn't say right away, but I don't think the White Sox are as patient as some other teams would be

How much do you think aging and HR/FB regression will affect Nelson Cruz? Think he hits 35+ taters still?
Dan Szymborski
2:32
So long as the HR rates stay up among baseball, sure
BUt he is at that age
2:33
Where downsides become very real.
Though in his case, I hope he ages super well for reasons of justice.
2:34
After being called a AAAAer and not really given a full season until he was nearly 30, I want him to have the ortiz curve.

When can we expect a new Fangraphs iPhone application?

Ask a Dave.
