Whats the name of the reporter in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles thats friends with them?
Dan Szymborski
1:00
I wouldn't call April a reporter as she mostly served as a propagandist for the ninja turtles.
You can't watch the cartoon and tell me that there was any sense of objectivity.
1:01
For example, when reporting negative information on a subject, it's customary for a reporter to contact the subject for their side of the story.
The reporting on Shredder was constantly biased and incomplete.

how do you know the chicken you're eating isn't just a VR simulacrum conjured up by the matrix
Dan Szymborski
1:01
I don't. I'm not positive about anything.
I'm of that school of thought that if the ability to simulate the universe ever could happen that it's more likely we're in a simulation than the reality.

What's your take on the Reds approach to rebuilding, both in terms of how well they'll fare and whether what they're doing is the model for other "small-market" teams to follow?
Dan Szymborski
1:02
They've done OK. Not great.

Heard Kakie Baker ripped two three-baggers and a steal and a third in AAA last night. Any word on when we might see him in the bigs?
Dan Szymborski

Smarch.

Hi Dan, is it too early to panic about the month of April? How much longer until it becomes May?

About three weeks.

I heard on Alex Jones show that MLB is paying players (Jean Segura was one of the given examples) to reduce game run time. Your thoughts?
Dan Szymborski
1:03
wait, THAT Alex Jones?
I doubt it.

Dan: in a keeper league do you like Grichuk of the Cards? Hits the ball awfully hard. Plate discipline is lacking but he's young. Take a chance on him? It might be a great buy low opportunity. Thx.
Dan Szymborski
1:04
I think he'll be fine.

If it's Japan wouldn't it be more Battle Royale style then Hunger Games? Geez Dan

Trevor Story total HR/RBI total at year's end. Go.
Dan Szymborski
1:04
His homers divided by his RBIs will be a number less than 1.
You can only get a HR/RBI of 1 if all your RBI are solo homers.
1:05
Given enough solo homers this year he can *approach* 1, but he's at 0.583 right now.
He can get up to .881 if he just has 30 solo homers and no other RBI
1:06
(30 additional solo homers)
