Step one: Put hot dog in bun.
Step two: Put bun in milk.
Step three: Eat hot dog sandwich soup.

Paxton's last 3 starts have been rough. It appears his velo has been dropping in those starts. Do you think he is still hurt or just having one of those stretches?
Dan Szymborski
3:26
I'm worried, he also hasn't *looked* good generally since coming back.
3:27
So you have to wonder about the forearm still, given the results.

Have the Cubs finally gotten their lineup to play to their potential?
Dan Szymborski
3:27
I've always said that the team's still good enough to have some wacky 30-10 run or something.
Poeple jumped off the bandwagon way too quickly.
Porcho Villa

I dealt Justin Verlander to get Eric "God" Thames. Fair deal in a vaccum?
Dan Szymborski
3:27
I think I'd rather have Thames right now.

Kershaw is a generational player, no doubt, but Scherzer and his 20 k games, no hitters, and numerous near no hitters...would I be safe saying he is almost in CK's league?
Dan Szymborski
3:28
As close as someone can be to Kershaw's league, Scherzer is there.
If the season ended today, I'd vote for Scherzer as the Cy Young
3:29
Also, if the season ended today, I really need to think of some article ideas for the missing season if I'm going to keep getting paid.
3:30
And no, I don't know which if any NL awards I'm voting on this year.

Rizzo as a 2B just came up in my league. I researched the reason why he even has that eligibility, and it comes down to an interpretation that the "guy closest to 1B is the first baseman" and thus the only guy allowed to wear a first baseman glove. Thoughts on how to handle? Way too often a third baseman is moved between 2B and 1B in shifts, but they don't have to get eligibility due to equipment. It's madness, Dan. Madness.
Dan Szymborski
3:31
I do tend to like stricter eligibility rules.
Sicne they're essentially a proxy for defense.

Can Bellinger be K Bryant 2.0?
Dan Szymborski
3:31
Why not?

Will Freddie Freeman be the first 3rd baseman to field a grounder doing the splits?
Dan Szymborski
3:32
Remains to be seen if they even do it!

what's the 2nd best NES baseball game (besides Baseball Stars, duh)

Do you see the Posey rule ever reversed?
Dan Szymborski
3:32
No

Could the cubs repeat without demoting rondon?
Dan Szymborski
3:32
Yes

Why hasn't Marwin Gonzalez become an everyday player? Seems like Fisher leapfrogged over him and now Marwin is back to a UT. Thought Marwin had put up numbers worthy of everyday pt.
Dan Szymborski
3:34
He'll still get his at-bats.  I'm fairly certain the Astros like himk but don't actually consider him a 1000 OPS guy

Care to take a stab on what kind of production Trout has when he returns?
Dan Szymborski
3:34
All of it.

Is (are?) every pair of shorts worn by Carlos Gonzalez cargo shorts?
Dan Szymborski
3:34
Yes.

How long before Judge gets a key to the city?
Dan Szymborski
3:34
Keys to the city never really make much sense.
I understand the ornamental aspect of course.

Just saw a video of Freeman taking grounders at third and he looks like Troy Glaus over there. Old Troy Glaus.

What's going to happen, it's going to make the Braves be a mediocre team not going anywhere in 2017?  They're already that.
