For the bad Irish accents, there's Brandon Finnegan.
I like saying Bumgarner because you can make butt jokes.
2:25
And Cueto's fun to say because it reminds me of total recall.

Something I have seriously wondered. With all the suspensions for amphetamine(s) in baseball, why don't players use methylphenidate (Ritalin, Focalin). Does MLB test for this?
Dan Szymborski
2:25
I'm not sure, I'd have to look at the drug list.
2:26
metylphenidates have a dosage, u nder 1000 nanograms per milliliter
5 Run Homer

I don't have a question but I wanna see the little streak of blue when I get a question accepted
Dan Szymborski
2:26
What streak of blue? I'm not seeing it.

Salazar has been having issues with walks this spring. Is he worth the gamble of keeping him at $10 this year or do you think an injury recurrence is just around the corner?
Dan Szymborski
2:26
I'm not worried yet.

On a scale from 1-10, how screwed am I for my ACCT208 exam tomorrow?

2. You must be quite confident if you're hanging out here.

In all correspondence with Travis Sawchik, do you include a photo of Nick Markakis?
Dan Szymborski
2:27
You guys already get me in trouble wiht him, I don't want to get blocked!
Oh, I have radio at 3, so I have a hard stop time, so include your random crap questions rather than waiting for a Lightning Round.

Do any of the Twins' starters besides Ervin Santana post an average season? Which one is most likely?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
I think Berrios, simply because '16 in MLB aside, he *does* have updie.
Ian Desmond
2:28
with my new home I'll show that my contract is a huge bargain and become a perennial 290/20/20 player right? right? just need to make contact and it'll fly!
Dan Szymborski
2:28
If you hit 290/20/20 as a 1B in Coors, the Rockies are probably a loser on the contract.

Do you prefer Tommy Joseph or Greg Bird?

How did you celebrate the last O's World Series Title?
Dan Szymborski

It was like 8 PM and I was 5. I think I celebrated by getting bedtime.

I just had this realization in the car. Excel is a pseudo-Visual programming language.

Phil Hughes: effective starter, effective reliever, ugh he's signed for multiple years?
Dan Szymborski

He's had his moments before.,

Kind of overused sometimes, but so versatile

Why does Zips hate me so much? I always rake when healthy
Dan Szymborski
2:31
And you don't feel that any uncertainty due to an entire missed season due to injury at a key development point should be considered?

Were you the kids with the "Let It Be Lowenstein" sign at the '79 World Series?
Dan Szymborski
2:32
I WA ONE
I WAS ONE
2:33
If I had a sign, I'd probably chew on it and then barf, or whatever I was doing at age 1.

Hey Dan, what kind of numbers do you see for Yasmani Grandal this year? He was great in the second half last year. You think the Dodgers start playing him a bit more? He seemed to sit A LOT last year
Dan Szymborski
2:33
They're trying to be careful, the Dodgers lose everything they love to injury!
O's Nos

Best ball player ever from Delaware?
Dan Szymborski

Hmm, Goldschmidt?
