In a hypothetical Space Jam for baseball, would you ever go out in public wearing a Looney Tunes leather jacket?
Dan Szymborski
2:52
Why not?
I've worn a blazer over a t-shirt with this image.

Are the Mariners sellers at the deadline? Do they rebuild or retool at this point?
Dan Szymborski
2:52
I think they're treaders.
2:53
Not Dawn Treaders.
Hungry

Dan, I have a bunch of ground beef that expires tomorrow. Any recipe ideas?

I dropped Ross when they demoted him. no one grabbed him, I got him back for 1 faab the day before yesterday, and i'm happy

I think it's time the chauvinistic Orioles cut ties with Mancini in favor of Womancini.

Tiger Woods says he is pain free after having spinal fusion surgery, which means Tiger Woods is on a LOT of drugs.

If you could go back in time with the knowledge you have now about baseball, think you could turn your 18 year old self into a MLB baseball player in the 1960's ?
Dan Szymborski
2:54
No
I still just throw 70

Noted baseballer and muscular young man, Eric Thames, has but a 102 wRc+ since May 1st! How concerned are you? Insofar, that one can be concerned with matters as ultimately meaningless as baseball statistics
Dan Szymborski
2:55
I'm not. Mostly because I didn't ever believe he was an MVP type, just a really really awesome HR who was a great pickup by the Brewers
Danny

Which catcher would you feel most comfortable moving to CF?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
Austin Barnes?

Dan, have you ever considered being a paid shill? It's easy! Just put some copper into a common article of clothing, and says it helped reverse your osteoporosis. Then brag about your coppery bone density !
Dan Szymborski
2:56
We're all shills.

I was in Dave's chat earlier, but did not receive said cocaine. I feel like I might have missed out. Is there a form on the site I can fill out to be indemnified?

blackberries are good, but you should really try the Champagne Mango. Much better than a regular Mango.

Was told Jorge Soler will never learn to hit a breaking ball. On the one hand, I'm a teacher, so I believe in the power to learn. On the other hand, I myself can't hit a breaking ball. What do you think of Soler's future?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
I think there's talent, but a ton of risk.

@hscer re: Space Jam flaws: Yeah, but you also have the Tasmanian Devil's wicked spin rate and Wile E. Coyote's cannon in the outfield, so it isn't like Barry Bonds or Alex Rodriguez need to single-handedly beat the MonStars.

If you could erase a memory ala "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," what would it be?
Dan Szymborski

The time I got clicked an image for blue waffles.

When did you first develop zips? I first saw it at baseballprimer in 2001.
Dan Szymborski
2:58
I didn't have it yet then. 2002.

What the heck happened to McCutchen so quickly?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
I don't know, he just looks OLD out there.
I'm starting to think that Starling Marte has a painting of McCutchen in his house that's aging rapidly and MLB had a very specific test for that.

Is Almedys Diaz really this bad of a player?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
He's never going to be Mr. Scientific at the plate.
But he's been playing somehwat better.
El Guapo

I think people using the phrase "massive dong" referring to a home run are weird.
Dan Szymborski
2:59
But it makes some statements deliciously awkward.
RotoLando
2:59
can you give us a brief opinion of The Tampa Bay Rays?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
They are a baseball team with a squadron of 25 baseball men.

Hey do you know of any elixirs that can help a former 6-WAR CF stop being replacement level? Asking for a friend...
