What criteria would you use to evaluate a GM/Front Office if you were an owner?
AvatarDan Szymborski
2:02
You don't have a lot of great GM metrics, I'd suss out how I feel about the people in quesiton after discussing their philosophies, their plans, and what they've done in the past.

The MLB currently can't obligate players to go to the WBC, but the tournament would certainly be better if it could. Is that something they may push for in the next CBA?

No.

Hoskins or Cozens?

With Kendrick/Brantley, if they made the roster, they'd both likely be on the bench, so I'd want both full-time starting in the minors.

do you like dogs?

2:05
Yes, but I also don't like waking up at 6 AM to go for a walk, so cats get the edge.

So Charlie Morton is a real thing now. He hit 98 today!

He had a big uptick last year too.
He's the Benjamin Button of pitchers.
In 10 years, he's going to be rookie Dwight Gooden.

I hate Excel. Why can't more college courses use R
AvatarDan Szymborski
2:07
Don't they typically use a lot of R now?
We used a lot of Statistica in college.
I do like my Excel though.

Would you be shocked to see Trevor Story, Gary Sanchez or Alex Bregman as a top 10 pick next season?
AvatarDan Szymborski
2:07
Not shocked.
2:08
If Story's healthy for a year and doesn't regress much, Coors can make him a top 10 pick without him being an ultra-elite player
Sanchez would surprise me a bit just because people shy away from catchers that early

Where does Nunez bat in SF?
AvatarDan Szymborski

I would guess 6th/7th or so.

Do you think a baseball team could ever come to Delaware (Wilmington ?)
AvatarDan Szymborski
2:10
YOu have something against the Blue Rocks?
2:12
I could very well see New Jersey kinda get a Delaware Valley team in theory at some point in the future to kinda split somewhat a very large market with some of Philadelphia's fan base, but don't see an MLB team based in Delaware
