Is Carter Capps a top 10 NL closer by the end of this season?
Dan Szymborski
2:04
OH yeah, hello.
2:05
Could be, but I don't want to commit yet given that he's still doing rehab.
And whether they call his shot put windup under new guidelines, I'm not sure of

Thoughts on Eric Thames so far? I know your system had him projected for a fairly significant season
Dan Szymborski
2:05
If he destroys the NL, Steamer gets the win over ZiPS - STeamer was more optimistic.
2:06
(ZiPS had him with an wRC+ of 112, Steamer 126)

Will Joe Ross be pitching for the Nats this weekend? If not, when would you expect him back?
Dan Szymborski
2:08
I'd have to count on the calendar. I don't think the Nats need a 5th starter again for like 10 days or so.
Which would mean the following weekend.

Palindrome confirmed.

If peak Mariano were somehow pitching today, do you think he would be considered the game's greatest reliever? Or would he be overshadowed by guys like Chapman who throw 100+ and rack up tons of strikeouts?
Dan Szymborski
2:10
I dont' think it would be clear-cut that either one was better, Mo had some crazy years.
Remember, of course, one of the reasons he's special is that he maintained his status for so damn long.

Do you have any Greek ancestors named Szymborkis?

Doubtful

I was offered Kole Calhoun for Robbie Ray in a league where I like my pitching better than my hitting. But I also think Robbie Ray could have a very high ceiling. Would you take the deal?
Dan Szymborski
2:11
Unless it's an extreme mix, I'd keep Ray
As in you have an AWESOME pitching staff and a TERRIBLE offesne.
But even in that case, you may be able to do better

What if Margot is really Buxton and this is another way of Preller cheating the rules? Mind. Blown.

Please rank the end of season roto value of the AZ starting rotation (i.e., among Greinke, Corbin, Walker, Ray, Miller).
Dan Szymborski
2:13
Greinke, Ray, Miller, Walker, Corbin?

Have you ever considered writing a book? If so what would it be about?
Dan Szymborski
2:13
Yes. But dunno.
Which is why I haven't written one. I don't want to write a book just to write one
New Yorka
2:14
Is Matt Harvey back and as good as ever?
Dan Szymborski
2:15
You have to love where he is, but I think 2013 Harvey is still a better pitcher.
Drew

Is Matt Bush pretty much a right handed Aroldis Chapman? Is his fastball/location that eliute?
Dan Szymborski
2:16
I'm tno sure I'd match them like that
Bush throws really hard, but he's not as good as Chapman
Matt
2:16
Is petco park more hr neutral now than its reputation
Dan Szymborski
2:17
Not quite neutral, but it's much closer than before

JJ Hardy: done, finished or cooked?

What are the odds Knebel is closing for the Brewers by the MLB trade deadline this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:18
Pretty good I think.
