There's a chat for us. Somewhere a chat for us.
Loud and crude and open air, wait for us, somewhere.
12:03
Noontime in U.S. FanGraphs a time for us. Time together with time to spare, time to yell, time to glare. Today!

Carlos Rodon is ready to become an All-Star ?
Dan Szymborski
12:03
Maybe not this year, but I'd be surprised if he never had an All-Star type season.

Unless your first name happens to be "Avisail", it's hard not to like the A-Jax signing for the White Sox. What say you?
Dan Szymborski
12:06
Well, fans of other teams. Avi is terrible and Jackson is OK and that's probably 2 wins right there

Is Tom Murphy going to be similar to Wilin Rosario in the fact that he can hit some bombs, but can't play defense worth a damn?
Dan Szymborski
12:07
Strikes me as likely.
Captain Carlos
12:07
do you expect a bounce back this season ? yes or no: Gio Gonzalez, Julio Teheran, Andrew Cashner
Dan Szymborski
12:07
Probably, probably, maybe

Fangraphs has the Cubs at 84% odds of winning the division, with the Cards and Pirates both in high single digits. As a Cubs fan, I like the high number, but seems too high, doesn't it?
Dan Szymborski
12:07
I don't calculate that so no insight! Though it's higher than I would say.

When do the "probable outcomes" get added to the ZiPS Google Spreadsheet?
Dan Szymborski
12:07
Over time.

Which trade to you think was more lopsided: the Kimbrel trade or the Giles trade?
Dan Szymborski
12:08
Oh, Giles/Rincon.

I am definitely NOT in the best shape of my life this spring. How about you?
Dan Szymborski
12:08
I'm in the average shape of my life. Which isn't great.
12:09
Well, maybe I'm below-average, I was in better shape through high school and that's half my life.

Think there is still time for the Brewers to send Lucroy and Will Smith to the Rangers for Gallo?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
Well, theoretically, but I don't expect it.
PS

Do you have an opinion on Jorge Mateo? showing he can handle MLB pitching so far this spring.
Dan Szymborski
12:10
Call me skeptical given that he has one month of high-A

ZIPS seems to be higher than most on Cespedes this year, do you buy?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
Probably take the slight under.

After Goldschmidt and Rizzo, what first baseman do you think hits double digits with stolen bases?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
Belt maybe? Gotta be less than 50% though.

If the 2014 draft were re-drafted today without regard to team need, what would the first 5 picks be? Schwarber, Turner, Rodon, Conforto, Newcomb, in that order?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
Finnegan might be in the mix too.
It's actually surprising how bad the second half of the first round of that draft looks.
I think - maybe i"m forgetting someone.

How effective do you see a Valbuena/Duffy platoon at third being for the Astros?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
Solid, but not sexy.

Piscotty gains 1B eligibility by game number? (5 games to be eligible at position for current year)
Dan Szymborski
12:14
5 games? May 1st.
Maybe 15th?
Paul Molitor
12:14
Miguel Sano will be very solid for me this season ?
Dan Szymborski
12:15
Yes. Liquefaction requires specialized equipment.

Cubs are averaging 15,000 fans so far for Spring Training games. On an 81-game home schedule, that would be a 1.2 mil pace. Will that exceed Marlins average attendance this year?
