Probalby not until next year. I already made a Betances.
I left open the raeaction button, whevere that is
Matt didn't quote the poop.

For those that don't have Twitter.

This is the most recent one, a ladder match to determine the best 3B.

Since some pro players are aware of/read fangraphs... Do you think any of them have ever asked a question in a chat (presumably during the offseason)?
Dan Szymborski
3:07
In a chat? Probably not.
And yes, players are aware of FG quite widely
Garza Gifs

I vote John Mabry the most mediocre player of all time. No years with War above 2 or worse than -2. Career WAR 1.0. Played 14 years!
Linus

Q: What's the difference between Billy Hamilton and Delino DeShields? A: DeShields didn't cost you a seventh round pick...

The Machado/Sox thing reminded me of a USA Today report from late in the 2015 season finding that a large majority of bench-clearing incidents are precipitated by conflicts between players of different ethnic backgrounds, with over half involving conflicts between white and Latino players. The rhetoric advanced by the typical white party to such conflicts, with its emphasis on "respect for tradition," bears *at least* a superficial resemblance to white supremacist rhetoric. Why doesn't baseball treat beanball wars the way, say, UEFA treats racist taunting? Will it eventually be forced to treat it that way? -- Regarding studiously apolitical statistical-analysis sites, same question.

I'll keep this open for readers to think about, but I stray away from the more charged stuff like this.

Why is Ervin Santana sorta good now?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
I haven't looked at the data actually, but he seems to be getting some crazy movement this year.
Dylan

If someone hit a home run every game thats a minimum of 162 runs added to his teams total. That's gotta be way more valuable than a 4 WAR
Dan Szymborski
3:10
But it's a lot of outs
1/5 with a HR is an 200 OBP.

Avisail Garcia for real or do you assume regression is on the horizon?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
Oh, regression is coming.
3:11
I get a BABIP from his hit data FAR below his crazy one.

I just looked up Alcubierre and it kept me from making a Dalkowski reference. well, until now

What's the most you would spend on a dishwasher?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
I think I spent $500 on my current one when the old one died
Depends what features there are.
I want mine to be pretty effective, what with me accumulating a massive amount of dirty dishes in my office for a couple weeks
R. Gsellman
3:11
I can't throw as hard and the ball isn't rotating like it used to. I might have a twinge in my elbow... What's going to happen to me?

It's your body, I'm sure you know it better than any old MRI
Matt

There once was a man from Nantucket. We all know of this man, and the size of his appendages. But do we really believe that only once was there a man from Nantucket. I feel like there have likely been many men from Nantucket.

Is cheesecake a pie?

No

Dan, I demand that you have that other imposter Matt removed from the chat. If you need some advice as to the best method, I would consult United.

I think it's obvious that Dan Szymborski, despite his online personality, is so financially and materially secure that 200 dollars is more of an annoyance than anything
Dan Szymborski

Heh
