I wouldn't. I think the Pirates are happy having Meadows consolidate his gains
YKnotDisco?!

Can you explain Abreu (2.4 t-9th) and Pujols (1.5 t-18th) having positive BsR value?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
Don't look at me. I'd design BsR differently
WILLLLLSON
2:44
What do you expect from W. Ramos when he comes back later next month? Steamer has him pegged at a .309 wOBA, below his career .320
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Injured catcher is a who knows!
To the chess guy, email me (it's in my twitter sig) and we can play some chess.
But I'm very rusty. I haven't played regularly for a long time.

What would someone have to do to you for you to hold a 3 year grudge of wanting to inflict pain upon them? Other then being Cistulli.
Dan Szymborski
2:45
Hurt my cat?
JT

Has Quintana's trade value gone down, what would Yanks have to give up to acquire now
Dan Szymborski
2:45
The problem is I don't think what they would accept for him has gone down.

If the fangraphs staff (I'm counting you even though you mostly just chat/project) were the heads a Front Office with Cameron as GM and Longenhagen as head scout, how good do you think they would be? Probably not Theo-level good, but not Stewart-level bad, right?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
I think that if you took the whole group, it'd be pretty decent, because there's a wide range of skillset among people.
Billy Beane
2:46
Yonder Alonso should start the All-Star game in the AL, but do you think there is any chance he actually will?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
Over Judge? No.
Zorn
2:46
Where are you at with Hunter Renfroe right now?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
Just friends.
Hannah Hochevar
2:46
Am I the only one who hears "Mookie Betts" and thinks "Bernie Goetz"?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
What?
Billy Beane
2:46
Saves are obviously dumb, but what did you think of Nate Silver's Goose Egg? Interesting, or more work than it is worth?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
It's better than saves for sure.
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
2:47
You'd likely get more production out of Tim Salmon than Mike Carp at this point.
Billy Beane
2:47
Does ZIPS treat a drug suspension the same as an injury, then? As in, it knows that you missed 80 games but is agnostic as to why?
Dan Szymborski
2:47
Yup.
Generic "time missed" I have as less than a generic injury.
Rest of Year
2:48
Who would you rather own for the rest of this season: Matt Harvey or Lamet?
Dan Szymborski
2:48
It's weird to say this, but I think I'd take Lamet
Danny Salazar's Elbow
2:48
Is Quintana droppable in a 10 team league?
Dan Szymborski
2:48
That's too aggressive, even without knowing who is on yoru waiver wire
Jack
2:48
Is Chase Utley the greatest baserunner of all time?
Dan Szymborski
2:49
I think that's Sabathia
Curious George
2:49
What percentage of questions would you estimate you usually get to answer?
Dan Szymborski
2:49
About 20%
About 20% are complete nonsense.
About 20% are way too specific about personal fantasy teams to be interesting to readers in large doses.
So I answer about a-third of the ones I'd like to.
Don't you forget about me
2:50
Given how well Thames did to start the year, is Jesus Aguilar being overlooked for how good he is?
Dan Szymborski
2:50
Well, Thames has done it in more playing time and he destroyed his minor league last few years while Aguilar was just kinda there.
Billy Beane
2:50
(Judge and Alonso don't play the same position)
Dan Szymborski
2:51
Oh, I thought they had been listed as DHs on the ballot.
