how does Tebow's Zips projection compare to Phil Mickleson's and Garth Brooks?
Dan Szymborski
2:13
More miracles.
not Matt Joyce
2:13
could Matt Joyce see his career revitalized in Oakland?
Dan Szymborski
2:13
I thought he saw it revitalized in Pittsburgh.
He's in the David DeJesus stage of his career no matter what really.
Hannah Hochevar
2:14
Trying to get an opinion on Jayson Aquino, who Buck says will be the 5th man for the O's...
Dan Szymborski
2:14
He's the most likely to nail down a job in spring that he didn't previously. Been tinkering with his curve and it's been working so far.

Do you know of any good deals for ESPN Insider? My subscription just ran out and I want to re-up.
Dan Szymborski
2:15
If it still works, SpeedyMags with ESPN3 code is usually 3 years for $18.
That tends to be the best deal.
David
2:16
Chris Hatcher: Late reliever, Middle Reliever or DFA candidate?
Dan Szymborski
2:16
Middle relief guy most likely
Mookie Cookie
2:16
With Nolan Arenado's batting profile + coors doesn't it seem he's due for a "lucky" babip year at some point? With that he could put together a avg north of .305 along with the usual power towards an MVP season?
Dan Szymborski
2:17
Oops, there's Galileo, who is awake and hungry.
Brandon
2:17
Yankees cant keep all those prospects. Why not get Quintana now?
Dan Szymborski
2:17
I don't think they want to pay the White SOx asking price.
Forsyth

DON'T YOU DARE TALK BAD ABOUT EXCEL
Ryan
2:17
Pork chops in the oven, slow cooker, or stove top?
Dan Szymborski
2:18
You can do all three! Depends how fatty they are. The fattier they are, the slower the cooking.
Though actual chops stove top or oven
John
2:18
Is this as good as its going to get for the Orioles in your lifetime? Is there no god?
Dan Szymborski
2:18
I'm banking on 40 years so I hope the O's become a top-tier team for some of those.
Dan
2:19
Have you ever heard of the projection system from "NumberFire"? Someone cited it in an article I read and it seemed like a joke.
Dan Szymborski
2:19
Haven't looked at them with much seriouness.
Noah
2:19
Do you believe in the Twins' defensive improvement? PECOTA has them 60 runs better on defense alone
Dan Szymborski
2:19
They *should* be much better.
the man
2:19
you're not getting any questions; you're going to have to answer my esoteric and weirdly specific question about a Delaware baseball team
Bill
2:20
Will Addison Russell ever steal 10 bases in a season?
Dan Szymborski
2:20
It's possible. Who knows where he ends up playing for years and years down the road.
Mikey B.
2:20
Jose Ramirez a good bet to repeat 2016 performance?
Dan Szymborski
2:20
2016? No. But ZiPS has liked him for a long time.
the man
2:20
yes, they're a Royals' affiliate. I want a Philly/Wilmington super-mash up
O's Nos
2:21
If ignoring saves altogether, who is the second best O's reliever to own in standard leagues after Britton?
Dan Szymborski
2:22
O'Day in 4x4, Givens in 5x5.
Confused
2:23
Dan what's the best way to begin learning R and the intricacies of Excel for a total noob?
Dan Szymborski
2:23
I haven't read it, but I've heard a lot of industry raves about the Marchi/Albert book.
O's Nos
2:23
Throwdown with starters with fun names to say: Pomeranz, Smyly, or Odorizzi?
Dan Szymborski
2:24
Smyly works the best I think.
Odorizzi if you're into really bad Italian accents
In which case DeSclafani is better.
