Do you have a ZIPS projection on Jae-Gyun Hwang? I could not find it in searching the twitter, and no player page on Fangraphs.

I've bought in on Whit Merrifield over Raul Mondesi. Smart? Hang tight? Or is Cheslor the better play?
Dan Szymborski
2:54
The Royals are very stubborn.
Mondesi could be terrible and be left in there all season

Dave Cameron said Jose Quintana doesn't get a top 20 prospect in a trade. Please talk some sense into that man.
Dan Szymborski
2:54
He *might* but I think people are overrating just how much will be given

Jeremy Hellickson was literally the FA starter with the best 5-year ZiPS. I can't imagine anyone ever offering the White Sox more than they would have been offered this winter unless the EXACT perfect situation comes up

"Anything but rap and country". This is quite the hot take for a Caucasian male, Dan Szymborski, insofar as any take can register a temperature- or at least one that could produce a measurable change in temperature

In hindsight, was Stanton extended too early? Is it possible for him to make his contract a good deal with his injury history?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
No, I think they've been unlucky

Matt Harvey, over/under 20 starts?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
I'll say over, god help me.

How much faith should we have in Charlie Morton's velo spike?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
Should have faith in a velocity spike. Less faith in the outcomes, of course

More lame death sequence, Ryan Zimmerman or Boba Fett?
Dan Szymborski

Everyone knows he wasn't really dead and escaped later

ZiPS is fairly pessimistic on Greg Polanco - .259/.322/.420 vs. 2016 actual of .258/.323/.463. Seems pretty bearish no?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
Well first ZiPS is expecting offense to come down a bit
And second,e xistence didn't start in 2016. And if it did, baseblal would take a time to develop
