I believe it is the "most mediocre" player, Dan. As a writer, you should English better.
Dan Szymborski
2:37
Words mean what I say they mean. And when I use a word aggressively, I pay it a little extra.

If you found 200 dollars on the street, how would you waste it?
Dan Szymborski
2:37
Turning it in.

Most overrated and underrated dessert?
Dan Szymborski
2:38
Overrated: Ice Cream. Underrated: Flan

Does zips now think Luis Urias is a top 50 prospect
Dan Szymborski
2:38
Don't do in-season projection updates for thje prospect list!

What is realistic to expect from Ryan Zimmerman over the course of the season given his incredible, clearly not sustainable but extremely enjoyable start?
Dan Szymborski
2:38
Well, you *do* have to make your expectations increase quite a bit. He was looking toast to me too, but toasty players don't hit like this that often, even for a month
Cody Bellinger
2:40
Are they really going to send me back to the minors!?
Dan Szymborski
2:40
I think they'll think it over long and hard how to get Bellinger full-time play if he keeps hitting like this.
They don't want him on the team as a role player after all
...
2:41
are the cubs' first inning woes just statistical randomness or is it an actual issue?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
I'm not worried
Babe Lincoln
2:41
How will we know when Amed Rosario is ready? Vegas is such a launching pad.
Dan Szymborski
2:42
You have to challenge your top talent. He's not being challenged right now, at least how it appears.
And increasingly, the Mets chances are slipping enough that they NEED him to be ready
Ryan
2:42
The Tigers are just going to ride this out to 84 wins, aren't they?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
That's about where they are.

Well, did you dump the pot?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
Yeah, it was just sitting there in the edge of the driveway

How significant of an event will it take for MLB to address the situation of pitchers throwing at a guy's head? Say Machado got hit in the face, broke his jaw and misses 3 months. Do they finally take action? As long as the worst penalty is a 4 game suspension, nothing will ever change.
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Nothing will ever change without someone dying or something, sadly enough.
(And probably 2% of MLBers could probably tell you who Ray Chapman was and even fewer really think much about him)
2:45
Carlos Quentin got *8* games for a blatant charge that seriously injured Greinke.
Nick
2:45
What do you attribute to Joe Mauer's poor offensive numbers thus far? Terrible BABIP but the K% is lowest in the league, GB% is down and FB% is up.
Dan Szymborski
2:45
He's the world's most overpaid singles hitter.
Robert
2:45
What would be the WAR of a DH who hit 1/5 with a hr and 4 k every game?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
200/200/800? Probably 4.
They got chicken in Philly??!!
2:46
If the basepaths were five feet wide and players could run around in them at will to avoid tags, how different would baseball be? Asking for a friend.
Dan Szymborski
2:46
I don't think *that* different. It would just change how they approach tag situations.

Have you seen what Ryan McMahon is doing in his repeat tour of AA (.364, 4HR, 4SB and 16Ks in 88 ABs) and is playing 1B, 2B and 3B. Do you think he gets called up to the majors by mid-season?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
Not called up, the roster's kinda tight.
Josh Black
2:47
Did you know May is Internal Audit Awareness Month?
Dan Szymborski
2:47
I did not know.
