I got violently ill after eating scallops once and I've been unable to psychologically eat them since.

Which is worse and more overrated: Avocados or onions?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
Onions are awesome. Avocados are overrated.
Goddamn, I'm answer a lot of your Qs.
Sorry guys

Did you watch Brockmire? I was pleasantly surprised. Hank Azaria knows his baseball.
Dan Szymborski

I've missed it so far!

Do you like Buxton's chances of eclipsing Adam Dunn's 2012 season of .204 BA and league leading 222 Ks?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
He'll be better.

Have you tried the RTTS in MLB the Show 17. Its kind of annoying that no matter how well you pitch, the team will try to move you to the bullpen.

Don't have it yet!

Let's say the Orioles could work out an extension with Manny Machado, should they do that? That is, is his value greatest to the franchise because of his return in prospects considering the Orioles' window might be closing?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
They could, but he may in fact be more valuable in trade.

I've never thought of the differences in the batter's eyes having that much of an effect on park factors. How strong do you think the effect would be compared to things like elevation/wind direction/dimensions? Close to as large as those factors, or closer to 10% as important as those factors?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
Pretty strong actually. There have been some changes in the past that really changed it

Dylan Bundy looks like a top-30ish pitcher. Thoughts so far?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
He's looked good so far, but not a guy who is ready to go 8

Who has the better year: Harper or Murphy?
Dan Szymborski

Harper

So if someone offers you Kiermaier for Buxton, you jump on that?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
Depends on the organization

Shohei Otani can't be offered more than a tiny fraction of his value this offseason. Goes to reason there will be heavy incentives to try to find a way to pay him under the table in a way that bends but does not break the rules. If, say, the Padres signed him, would everyone just assume there was some shady AJ Preller business going on?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
Probably. He's gotten a rep

Jharel Cotton's pitch is a change up or a screwball?

Circle change

Did you read Sam Miller and Ben Lindbergh's book? If so, what were your thoughts?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
I have, it was a lot of fun
