Thoughts on Schebler? Looks like he has room for improvement in the BABIP department.  Power for real?
Dan Szymborski
3:09
The power improvement looks real.  Should be a good averagish player for a few years.

porzinigis to the mets to play with Tebow in the minors? gotta sell dem jerzeys
Mecha-Syzmborski

When Segura comes back, how good is the Mariners lineup? Top 3 AL?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
I'd put them 5th or 6th I think.
Aaron

How has the Amazon/Whole Foods acquisition affected your life?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
Not yet!  Though I'm annoyed that my local Whole Foods apepars to be prepackaging their sausages now and don't have the merguez anymore.

Are you buying a resurgence from Quintana and/or Cueto this year and beyond?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
Yes
HR derby
3:12
Girardi said the homerun derby wont bother Judge because he will still be hitting to all fields. Do you buy that logic?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
I think it's just one of those make-conversation things
Dudas Luca
3:12
Will the Mets trade Duda, and what are two or three teams where you think he fits?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
No
Stan

Luis Robert was the rage in fantasy after signing with the White Sox.  What is a realistic ETA, 2019 or 2020?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
Gotta see him in the minors before you can be realistic.  A palyer like him has a wide range of outcomes.
Ozuna
3:12
Do you think Ozuna, offensively, has taken a step forward this season?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
Yes
Steve
3:12
Dan! How the heck are ya? Do you like Rizzo over Encarnacion by a wide margin ROS?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
Yes
trade
3:12
what are the yankees' and mets' biggest needs going into the trade deadline rumor stretch?
Dan Szymborski
3:13
I'd like the Yankees to have another starter.  And the Mets to have a new manager/front office.
Nick Markakis
3:13
Will I make it to 3000 hits? I'm closing in on 2000 fast
Dan Szymborski
3:13
Heh

Which pitcher and batter do you think deserve he Klobb Award this year?  (If such an award existed, and it should)
In fact, an end-of-year article comparing players to GoldenEye weapons is a good idea.
Dan Szymborski
3:13
I guess the Klobb would be the hitter with the lowest ISO and the pitcher the slowest fastball?
3:14
I'm assuming, without looking, that's Alcides Escobar and Jered Weaver.

If a Hitter has a 56 game hitting streak on the line, and is 0-2 in the 9th inning, and is up at bat with the opposing pitcher throwing a no-hitter.  If he could get a hit by bunting, should he do it?
Dan Szymborski
3:14
Yes
A no-hit isn't a feat if the other team isn't going to do whatever they can to end it.
trade value
3:14
if you're nyy, what do you accept for judge?
Dan Szymborski
3:14
All the bacon.
Fat Albert
3:14
Not a question - just an observation. Chad Pinder ranks 1st among middle infielders in ISO, Avg. FB/LD exit velocity, Barrels/PA, and 3rd in % of 95MPH+ batted balls.
GERB

Ramirez's last 7 days split is insane. 357 wRC+, 14 XBHs, 1.4 WAR... Idea for a post, the best one week stretches ever. He's gotta be up there right?
JD
3:14
What's the right plan for the Angels?
Dan Szymborski
3:15
A plan.
Nickles
3:15
What do you Machado's end of season line is? You think yesterday is a sign of things to come?
Dan Szymborski
3:15
I think he'll be fine.

Y'know, for a digital dandy, you'd think you could get a working digital clock or something...

Eno did a really interesting article last year on evaluating managers (http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/how-should-we-evaluate-a-manager/). Any chance this will be updated anytime soon, possibly ASB, with 2017 numbers? For all the metrics we have on players, metrics on manager effectiveness seems to be limited. I thought Eno's was an excellent early path to take but haven't seen it expanded upon.
