That's way too vague a question because it's not a 2D line. There's no magic change/no change point

Think the Nats have modified any optimistic plans to call up Giolito this year? 20 BB in just 30.1 IP and a WHIP up near 1.70 + the rotation lacking a weak link
Dan Szymborski
12:31
There's no need to rush him if there's a need.

Technically, the quote is "kick ass and chew bubblegum," not "chew bubblegum and kick ass."
Dan Szymborski
12:31
I can say it in any order I want.
Roddy also said he was all out of gum
Reginald Denton III

Old school sugary bubblegum...I love it. So will your dentist.
Dan Szymborski
12:32
I don't actually chew g um
I drink my milk. My teeth are so strong I could bite through time.

Are the Miami Marlins a playoff team?
Dan Szymborski
12:32
I'd say no.
Outta my way, Gyorkass

Are the Brewers going to be good before Jimmy Nelson's initial 0-6 club control ends? Would he make sense as a trade piece and if so, what general type of return would he warrant (assume a trade near this year's deadline)?
Dan Szymborski
12:32
I think you have to look at a trade if the packages are good.
Copp
12:33
Moran and White for Teheran. Is that fair?
Dan Szymborski
12:33
I would find that an underwhelming package.
Eric
12:34
Can Yoenis Cespedes keep up this pace?
Dan Szymborski
12:34
No
Danny Almonte
12:35
Which struggling veteran that "it is too early to worry about" are you most worried about?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
Shelby Miller
Zorn
12:35
Thoughts on Anthony DeSclafani?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
He is a pitcher.
Outta my way, Gyorkass
12:35
Cubs rumored to be proposing a package including 5 top prospects for Trout. Any chance this is anything more than wild clickbait speculation?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
Probably not, but you should always be willing to talk

Cistulli is nearly halfway eligible to cast a HoF vote. Sam Page once asked "Does Carson Cistulli's Admittance To The BBWAA Finally Justify His Preposterously Detailed Wikipedia Page?". Now that it has been 4 years, what is your opinion?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
I will vote for the presidential candidate that endorses sending Carson to Gitmo.
Danny Almonte
12:37
What is the trade that needs to happen? One that just makes too much sense not too (but still probably won't)
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Freddie Freeman for something. The Braves are wasting his time.
Houzer
12:37
better playoff stash ... Trea Turner or Dee Gordon?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Probably Gordon if we're talking fantasy
Oliver
12:38
Idk why but I enjoy reading old chats before the new ones start. I just got half way thru the one i picked for today (your chat from 8/26/13) and noticed you placed that bet on Scherzer to win the CY young. What did you spend your winnings on?
Dan Szymborski
12:38
Put it in my brokerage account.
CecilFielder

Was Kiley McDaniel ever replaced for prospect writing, or is that why Eric longenhagen is being brought back?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
Remember how I always tell you guys that ask FanGraphs questions to the Daves?
Bart
12:39
What's your opinion of Brandon Finnegan?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
Every start at one point has edged on disaster due to his command.
Matt
12:39
Dan! Lance McCullers is back! But he sucked. Should I be worried?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
The Astros are the Typhoid Mary of pitching this year.
kris
12:40
How, exactly, is Matt Bush a great story?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
Everybody loves a tale of redemption
12:41
Bush served his time - society already got its shot. As I see it, society gets a shot, any potential victims get a shot, I'm not sure why *I* should get a shot too.
