At one point can we determine that the Byron Buxton experiment at the major league level has failed and he needs to go back to the minors to work on plate discipline? All-Star Break? End of the season? Now?
Dan Szymborski
2:14
At some point, he's going to have to learn to work through offensive slumps in the majors

Is there any point in the season where current year performance out-predicts pre-season forecasts? Obviously a blend is better but if my choices were one or the other which is a better predictor.
Dan Szymborski
2:15
I still have the previous years slightly outweighting the most recent one at most.

What would the Jays get for Donaldson if Boston and NY bid on him, assuming JD is in good health and playing to his usual standards?
Dan Szymborski
2:15
Quite a bit. The key is always the willingness.

Has there ever been a study in the WAR of managers? I feel like it would be tough to evaluate, but it would be cool to see how much some managers (like Bochy and Showalter) are worth compared to their counterparts (Collins and Yost)
Dan Szymborski
2:16
Not explicitly WAR, that's a little difficult to do with something like managing
Chris Jaffe's Evaluating Baseball Managers is about as good as you can find

Good Morningtime, My name is Mister George Washington and I have very big special offer for your time. Please answer to be entering into our giveaway. What is your favorite type of mustard?
Dan Szymborski
2:17
I don't know, mustard seasoned with Thomas Gage's tears?
I'm not sure I follow this.

Does Peacock deserve another turn in the Astros rotation?
How many Astros hitters finish with 10 or more HRs?
Dan Szymborski
2:17
I think so.
2:18
Hmm, all of them?
10?
The Gary Sanchez Experience
2:18
Carlos Rodon anything to get excited about now that the rehab process has begun?
Dan Szymborski
2:19
I'm a big fan of Rodon, but it's going to come down to how healthy he is
Wigwam

What kind of prospect can the Padres get for Brad Hand? In the 50 - 100 top prospect range?
Dan Szymborski
2:19
That's a bit aggressive.
If the Padres could get that, t hey already would have, I think.

Does Tyler Glasnow have anything to be happy about this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:20
No visits to James Andrews?
Fat Albert
2:20
This sounds weird - drop Pujols for Tommy Joseph or Max Kepler?
Dan Szymborski
2:20
Pujols is droppable.
Scruffy-Looking Nerf Hurler
2:22
Are you buying the hitter Jake Lamb has become? I feel like he's doing really well and not that talked about.
Dan Szymborski
2:22
I think the BA come down, but he's continually improved his discipline at the plate and it's getting super dangerous to throw him a fastball.
RotoLando
2:22
The stupid DH-less National League is robbing mankind of the glory of Jesus Aguilar.
Eli
2:22
Should we start tempering our expectations for Quintana?
Dan Szymborski
2:23
He's been pitching better than he was at the start of the season. I am concerned about the uptick in walk rate.
2:24
I'm not sure the White Sox will ever get more for Quintana they may hae this winter. I still think that was the ideal market.
fyi

Carson Cistulli has just published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.

Yes

Who's 2nd in line for saves in SD? Also, suggest a date when Nate Jones takes over in Chicago, please.
Dan Szymborski

Do they win enough games to form a queue?
Mmm Bacon

Is it at all possible Votto is traded to a contender this summer?
