Not rosterable in a tean, I don't think

Have you looked in to the Braves new stadium this year and how it may effect Freddie and the gang?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
You really can't tell much about a stadium's effects until it's actually played
Virgin Islander

who are your ROY picks for this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Benintendi and Swanson were my ESPN panel picks. I know, boring
Six Ten
2:44
But do you like sunsets more than you like Eli Whitney?
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Not really since the cotton gin is useful?

Are you disappointing in the agents that have been negotiating extensions this spring? It seems that the teams have gotten the better end of most of these deals
Dan Szymborski
2:45
Players pre-arb have good reason to be risk-averse.
The first 5 million is probably way more valuable to most people than your 9th 10 million.

As an O's fan, should I be happy that Rickard has had a strong spring (k/bb rates, etc) as it bodes well for 2017 or sad because it got him a roster spot?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
He's fine in a platoon role. Just as long as everyone acknowledges that's what he is and stops indulging the fantasies that he's an actual reasonable full-time startee candidate

Were you surprised to see Mondesi get the 2b job in kc? Is he coming into his own after a hot spring or is there more of last September coming? So young...
Dan Szymborski
2:46
Not that surprised as I don't think that much of the organization genearlly.

Camden Depot ran some interesting numbers on lineup construction. They usually put out good analytical based articles, and surprised me by stating lineup construction matters more than we originally thought.

I haven't read it so I can't say.

Dan Szymborski, your chat schedule is erratic- much similarity to the horrifying chaos of the universe that dictates our entire lives. Would you, Dan Szymborski, be willing to amuse us with your opinion of the Tigers outfield situation?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
HAHAHAHAHAHA
Dan Szymborski
2:46
I'll read it

Who is the most overrated player in the game in your opinion? Underrated?
Dan Szymborski
2:47
Kemp still is. There are actual people who think that he is a star. Not that he'll rebound to being a star, but that he ACTUALLY IS
I think Kyle Seager's underrated. He seems to get very little talk relative to his performance.
Tommy

Carson Kelly, Luke Weaver, and Kolten Wong for Jose Quintana?
Dan Szymborski
2:48
Ha

The Great Kozmandias, Look at his OPS ye Mighty, and despair.

When was the last time you thought about my son?
Dan Szymborski
2:49
When I read the SI piece that had the scouting bits on all teams and I was already laughing at the unnamed scout by the end of the Braves sentences.
"Matt Kemp's getting out of the Hollywood scene and coming to Atlanta, where he can just focus on baseball, is a great thing for him. "
"Nick Markakis sets up the whole lineup. He's finally healthy, and he could still earn his contract, but his defense is holding him back from being a valuable player"

Whats the latest entry in your dream journal?

Hold on

Who do you like more out of Gsellman, Eickhoff, and Wacha?
Dan Szymborski

Gsellman

Are the Mets realistically unupgradeable in-season? It seems like there aren't too many sellers at their positions of weakness.
Dan Szymborski
2:50
More areas will pop up midseason, I bet

I was at the C-Dot podcast taping when author Gary Cieradkowski was on (I was there too in real life) but his name was spelled Szyradkowski in my dream and I was furious that dream me was spelling it wrong because I knew the correct spelling
For some reason, ___ was mad at me and wouldn't spend time with me other than us making plans and her bringing me a loaf of bread as a present. I was mad because we went to this party on her lunch hour and she brought me more bread but then woudlnt eat at this party and said her lunch was back at work. Later, I helped the x-men fight and defeat this mutant whose power was to turn 5 people into baby heads and then eat them. We saved all but one of the x-men that he had already eaten and recovered the corpose of a voter, which made cyclops mad because he had just been elected president by three votes and this mutant might have swung the election. We let the mutant go but he was wearing a suit, but we kept finding baby heads in secret pockets and had to turn them back into people.
