And right now, there's no particular reason to be worried
2:43
They've got a seven game lead with no McHugh and Fiers playing Home Run Derby

Yasmany Tomas is very weird. Is he good, is he bad? I don't know.
Dan Szymborski
2:43
Mediocre and always overrated.
Moltar

Szymbors-gate or Szymbor-ghazi?
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Dan is not controversial enough for one of those.
Szymbanalia?

Can you think of a more pleasant evening than having a romantic spaghetti dinner with Carson Cistulli where he regales you with tales of his adolescence?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
Returning Double C to the elder gods.

The Twins came into the season "rebuilding" and are surprising most everyone. Are we getting to the point (June 1) where they're no longer considered rebuilding and should change their strategy to buyers?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
I don't think they ought to be there yet.

Would Trout + an elite bullpen + a bunch of scrubs (i.e. the current Angels team plus an elite bullpen) be a contender or at least playoff team?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
Mildly interesting. There aren't any juggernaut teams.
Joe
2:45
Orioles are in trouble, aren't they?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
The depth of the rotation frightens me.
2:46
And despite reputation, they're a very ordinary offensive team.
Frank Reynolds
2:47
Hey Danny! Did you see Stro-show's oppo taco? When was the last time a sub 6'0 pitcher went oppo-dong?
Dan Szymborski
2:47
I don't know what half these words mean.
But stroman's hit out to right against the Braves was pretty sweet.

Why do you do Fangraphs chats? You don't even go here.
Dan Szymborski
2:47
I'm here!
James
2:48
Is Lindors power surge sustainable? I mean he's not gonna keep up that ISO but is he a 20-25 HR guy from now on as opposed to the 10-15?
Dan Szymborski
2:48
He was doing well at barrels last check. Remember, he's still a young player.
Joe
2:48
How many weekends in a row do we have to hear that this maybe the weekend Donaldson returns? Im done being charlie brown here
Dan Szymborski
2:48
Charlie Brown's team would have won if they had Donaldson as a ringer.
2:49
On the real side, the Jays don't want him back in the lineup until they know the calf is no longer an issue.

Matt Kemp took a tremendous beating around FanGraphs in 2016 (deservedly so). Care to say anything nice about him this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:49
He's had a really good offensive year so far.
2:50
Stilla wful defensively.
And if you think he's a .400 BABIP guy for real, well, bless your heart!

was 1997 a good year for star pitchers, I can't tell lol http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=pit&lg=all&qual=y&...

Everything equal, would you prefer 2 craft beers or 8 macro beers?
Dan Szymborski
2:50
2 good ones.
I can't drink anywhere near the alcohol that I used to, so I want to make it count.
Moltar
2:50
I mean, Brian LaHair was once an all star. Start off the season hot and anybody could do it, even Avi Garcia!
Quincy Carter
2:51
If Mike Trout somehow became a free agent in the near future, what's the chance he could demand a 1 Billion dollar contract?
Dan Szymborski
2:51
He can demand whatever he wants. But a billion isn't going to be gotten.

actually jotcast turns out to be ok, it's when it tries to work w/fangraphs that we start talking gigs of ram
PD
2:51
Since you can get designer jeans with rips, shouldn't the White Sox do a Sale tribute with ripped designer baseball jerseys?
Dan Szymborski
2:51
That would have been fun when he was on the team.
