*cough*
Don't worry, I won't be inserting my coughs.

On a scale from "blow it up and start over" to " they'll figure it out and be a strength", how concerned should Dodgers fans be about me and my 'pen mates?
Dan Szymborski
12:05
It's a little late to blow it up. And they *still* have the #3 bullpen in the RoS projections - even if you apply some kind of suck factor and say they're "only" 10th or something, how would they build a better bullpen than the #10 on April 18th?

Any idea why Tulo has bad offensive numbers since he got the jays?
Dan Szymborski
12:05
2015 wans't alarmingly worse given the sample size
12:06
And again, April

Just two starts, but any reason to be worried about Severino's K numbers? Everything else seems to be clicking.
Dan Szymborski
12:07
We're talking 2 missing strikeouts

Matt Moore- balls-dropping breakout?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
April and all that, but I'm optimistic now. He's *looked* sharp
JDogg

How long has Gregerson's leash gotten in Houston?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
When Giles gets back to form, he's still on borrowed time
JDogg

I've read a Trea Turner comp as Altuve lite? Is that accurate?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
Meh

What's wrong with Matt Harvey? April?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
I'll say April for now
Juwan

How do you view the Harper/Trout comparison now? Has Harper done enough to edge past Trout in your mind?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
I wouldn't say that, but they're fairly even at their ungodly levels
Pedro

Where can I get data about specific innings? I wanted to see how the shift towards more money in bullpens has affected batting categories over the last couple of years
Dan Szymborski
12:11
B-R has a lot of split stuff - depends exactly what you need
And if they don't and you'r enot good at mining data, I'd bug Sean or Hans and see if they're willing to help you with something

Why is it still an unearned run if the pitcher is the one that makes the error? Is this something MLB has ever thought about changing?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
It does kind of bug me, but they're not changing it at this point

What is your favorite class to play with in Hearthstone? I find the Mage is the easiest when getting started.
Dan Szymborski
12:12
I enjoy Paladin when Midrange/Control Paladin is a stronger version
Oops, meant to save that for Lightning Round
Gest
12:12
What do you think the chances are that Matt Harvey's medical condition is affecting his pitching performance?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
I don't think so much
aj
12:12
buy sano low?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
Sure
Harpers Emoji Bat
12:12
Are you worried about d'Arnaud yet? I know it's still April but he hasn't been hitting well, and getting hit in the elbow can isn't exactly helping his situation
Dan Szymborski
12:12
Always be worried about injury, but I'm not worried otherwise
Zock jr
12:12
Hi, Dan! $90 too much for the 3 Mets aces in an Ottoneu pts league? Worried about deGrom/Harvey?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
Maybe, no

Is there a fetish that is more taboo than continuing to plug Avisail Garcia into the DH role for a team trying to contend?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
At this point, it's not like they have good options
They tend to be Avi believers.
Honestly, I think an AVI file has more upside.
12:14
It might be a Game of Thrones episode! At worst, it's a Caroline in the City episode and Avi's no better than that.
