Might as well

Do you think Bregman could push Correa off short? Correa just doesn't seem that great defensively
Dan Szymborski
12:38
I think Correa gets the incumbency
Dinger

Do the Rockies need to bite the bullet and trade Cargo? As a Rockies fan it's frustrating supporting a rebuilding team that doesn't even know it's rebuilding
Dan Szymborski
12:38
They needed to last year
The Rockies front office has been run the same for the last 15 years.
12:39
As I've always said, their team is run like Homer Simpson's plan to pass his nuclear physics test.

Lucroy worth a prospect in the 15-50 range & another in the 50-100 range. Braun worth a prospect in the 75-125 range. Am I too hot, too cold or just about right?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
That's a little expensive for Lucroy and I like him

Does Toronto overcome the Red Sox? Why?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
They're underdogs simply because I dont' think they're 4.8 (or so) games better on a 162 game basis than Boston.
Stenzy
12:41
Now even Nightengale is reporting the Giants and Brewers have now begun discussing Braun. Can you see the Giants taking on that contract?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
The Brewers may eat some to get a better prospect. Which they should; it's the only real way to outright buy a rpospect.
Oliver

Chris Archer. Buy or Selling?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
Buy

What do you think about MLB having a loan system? (Teams out of it can Loan players under contract to another team for the remainder of a season and get him back afterwards)
Dan Szymborski
12:42
Too many shenanigan possibilities

It was Harper who destroyed the One Ring!
Dan Szymborski
12:42
OMG HE BIT OFF MORDECAI BROWN'S FINGERS. I think that would make him Gollum then.

If Dave Stewart went on a rant about you, calling you a nerd and "Digital Dandy" during a press conference and accused you of ruining the game, what would your reaction be?
Dan Szymborski
12:43
Glee.

I love the Mariners taking Trey Griffey in the 24th round as a respectful gesture. I mostly love it because it shows just how little teams value the 24th round that they will use it for purely symbolic means. Any "analysis" done on players after the first couple rounds is silly, but hey, love the dedication of the MLB network.
Dan Szymborski
12:43
Yeah, guys that low are just "whatever, we have to fill the rosters"

Shohei Ohtani is currently running a 2.42 ERA, 10.4K/9, routinely hits 100MPH, has 9HR and an 1.100 OPS while hitting in the middle of the order. Any updates on posting status/MLB interest?
Dan Szymborski
12:43
No updates, but *I* certainly have interest
Blaine
12:44
Do you think my Red Sox would have interest in Nick Markakis is the Braves sent cash in the deal? Need a platoon partner with Chris Young, thanks!
Dan Szymborski
12:44
Meh. Probably wouldn't be horrid in a platoon role but I'm nto giving *any* player for him.
Paul
12:44
Do you think the Braves could get a top 30 org prospect in return for Markakis like they did with Kelly Johnson?
Dan Szymborski
12:45
I certainly wouldn't. But who knows.
And didn't you guys ask like a million Nick Markakis questions a few weeks ago and get me in trouble with Braves Reddit?
Joey Gallo
12:46
How bad do moreland and fielder have to play before I get more than a 1 AB call-up
Dan Szymborski
12:46
I'm a little befuddled at the lack of movement here.
Put Fielder in refrigerator box and leave him outside an orphanage.

Carlos Santana is batting .162 in 200 PA in my ZiPS driven sim league. Why do you hate me?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
I'd need to know more about you before I can tell you the specific reason why I personally hate you.
Phil
12:47
We had another "testicular contusion" injury last night. Besides clearly being the worst injury anyone can possibly have... Haven't these guys ever watched The Bad News Bears (original)?
Eric
12:47
Would Atlanta accept Benintendi alone for both Teheran and Vizcaino?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
I think they'd want more than that.
Big Joe Montferrant
12:48
Shohei Otani is hitting .337/.427/.673 1.100 OPS in 124 PA... Will an NL team pay more for him due to the extra value of hitting?
