If Otani comes over to an AL team will he hit when he pitches with pinch hitters taking over once he is out of the game? Or will he be DH'd for on pitching days?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
Really depends on the team.

Bruckner cycle: Jochum vs Wand?
Dan Szymborski
2:31
Jochum. A couple of the Wands are just a little too coola t the climaxes. Though the Wand has better sound.
The best Bruckner run is Celibidache though.

I believe The Mets' injury woes can be traced back to elaborate handshakes.

When Jesus Aguilar heats up, you'll all be sorry!

Do teams ever target players from certain geographic areas? I noticed the Phillies have drafted/signed a lot of guys from the Midwest, the Nationals from Illinois/Indiana, etc. Is this out of practice or merely coincidental?
Dan Szymborski
2:32
Some do, some don't. The Braves have liked guys from the area.
Depends on the organization and it varies.
Tha twould be an itnresting draft look

Have you gotten a look at Jose Bautista? Do you believe the meticulous care he takes in training and diet will save him? Or is it more genetics and luck that governs the speed of decline?

Time has worn down the most phenomenal athletes.
Don't Panik
2:33
Are the Giants wasting his good eye talents at the bottom of the lineup?
Dan Szymborski
2:34
Who, Crawford? He's been hitting in the middle of the order
Oh, Panik
Thought this was a follow up
Bochy is not very lineup imaginative
2:35
So Gorkys has hit leadoff because reasons

Have you played or considered playing in a high stakes fantasy league? If so, do tell.
Dan Szymborski
2:35
I don't do high stakes fantasy.

Now we can ask, who is the new Texas closer???
Dan Szymborski
2:37
Have they officially taken the job away from Dyson? I knew there were rumblings, but perhaps I missed something this morning
Bush would be next in line I imagine. And I woudln't be surprsied for Dyson to get teh closer axe, they've thrown in the towel very quickly on closers in recent years (Tolleson, Feliz)

It's 2:00, WHERE THE HELL IS MY CORNBREAD, DAN!
Dan Szymborski
2:37
NEVER PROMISED CORNBREAD
2:38
Oh, I guess that crawford question couldn't be a follow up since it was asked like at 1:57 before I even started.
I mean the panik question.

I know baseball well but am new to fantasy. What beginner's mistakes did I problem make? Are they correctable?
Dan Szymborski
2:38
You probably chose all the wrong players and you're doomed forever and the winner in your league gets to write your epitath someday

If Delaware was to compete in the WBC, it would have Paul Goldschmidt, Brett Oberholtzer, Joey Wendle, and maybe a couple retirees like Kevin Mench and Ian Snell. How would they do?
Dan Szymborski
2:38
Depth would be an issue
2:39
Remember, *Oberholtzer* is the second player you named.
But better than Luxembourg or something!
RotoLando
2:39
Bruce Rondon has three first names. Who will he assassinate?
Dan Szymborski
2:39
Only applies when there's a space.
