But honestly, I'm not sure I believe htem.
I think it's very possible, simply because there are lot of scenarios in which eh's the best WIN NOW 3B in the organization

Once the BABIP returns to normal, is this the end of the line for Nick Markakis?
Dan Szymborski
3:03
Markakis is one of those guys who will get jobs forever.
what, is she funny or something?
3:03
you did say freeland, i had freddie on my mind
Dan Szymborski
3:03
OK, I thought maybe I said Marvin Freeman, which would've been weird because I wasn't drunk
Sean
3:03
I fire all my bullets (questions) during Dave's chat; he never answers them, then I'm spent by the time your chat rolls around.
Mets
3:03
Harvey didn't show up hungover. He didn't show up.
John

Do you play any baseball simulation games? If so which do you prefer for accuracy? (Diamond Mind is the one I am most familiar with.)
Dan Szymborski
3:04
I play both DMB and OOTP
Marky Mark

What basic statistic angers you the most when used in arguments about who is a better player?
Dan Szymborski
3:04
RBI
Marte
3:04
Cluck-cluck-cluck-cluck
Dan Szymborski
3:04
This guy is sending nonstop cluck questions. I'm not sure what the joke is.
Bird
3:04
Is it the word anymore?
Dan Szymborski
3:04
Everybody knows. Duh
Look Yonder
3:04
Yonder or Bird rest of the season?
Dan Szymborski
3:05
Yonder
It's weird that I'm saying that
Marky Mark

Is Bolsinger due for a rebound year? Lot of walks last night but the Jays need the rotation help and Mat Latos should certainly not be on the shuttle up to Toronto anytime soon
Dan Szymborski
3:05
I just don't think Bolsinger's that good
Hannah Hochevar
3:05
How do the Rays feel about the KK extension now that he is striking out a ton and has 3 errors on the year?
Dan Szymborski
3:05
The same. Why would I panic over 5 weeks?
Josh
3:06
You expect this to continue with Bundy given his minuscule K%? He seems like a 3.80, 1.25 guy at best.
Dan Szymborski
3:07
Yeah, but I expect him to strike out more guys
Nate
3:07
What is the best argument you've heard for people defending baseball vs. people who think its boring (claiming its slow, no physical contact, etc.)?
Dan Szymborski
3:07
NUH UH

The Dahl question was about Reynolds. Expect big things from the 1B rest of season, or no?
Dan Szymborski
3:07
Oops, me no read well?
I don't expect big things, but I think tis' a particularly good environment for Reynolds
what, is she funny or something?
3:09
purely eye test, but it does seem like avi garcia is at least hitting the ball harder this year (he has also legged out a few more infield singles than he would have in the past). when his babip regresses to its norm could it settle around .350 instead of ~.300
Dan Szymborski
3:10
This is the part where I note that Garcia's exit velocity is off from last year (90.3 to 88.8 this year)
Renots
3:10
Is Schebler Jay Bruce 2.0 or Jay Bruce Light?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
2.0. Bruce wasn't really that great
Oscar Gamble
3:10
Should we be assuming Quintana is battling an injury?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
No.
Contorto

Cat Update, please

Don't know where Pandora is. Galileo's sitting on my office couch cleaning his face (he's getting over a cut Mercutio gave him on his nose). Mercutio ran away and hid when the UPS truck went up the street and I dont' know where he is now
American League

The Yankees are good again. This is bad.
Pick Me!

Who do you like more ROS in H2H between Carlos Gonzalez or McCutchen?
