It wasn't last week for me, man.  I don't know if I've chatted with you since like the second week of May.
Dan Szymborski

I'm on Twitter you know!

Lou Gehrig twice had more HRs than Ks in a season.  What active player is our best bet to achieve that feat sometime in his career, and what are the odds anyone actually does so in the next 10 years?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
None, realistically.  The game is played very differently.

Would love to see an article on how today's best players are projected to age, maybe with comps. I have ESPN insider, so there is cool too.
Dan Szymborski
2:58
Noting this.  If I write it you better read though!

Would you rather have Addison Russell or Trea Turner for the next 10 years?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
Turner by the slightest of hairs

How do you feel about the Hall of Fame chances for Brian McCann and YAdier Molina?   If either of them two have a chance, what does that say for Jason Kendall?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
None.
OK, maybe that's too blunt
McCann is none.
Molina I think will get some support, but nowhere close to 75%

Are you optimistic that Lucroy can turn it around?  His production is borderline laughable at this point.  Would you dump him for Grandal and never look back?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
I'm optimistic with a tinge of worry.

Kakie Bryan suffered a set-back in his ACL rehab. Does this change his stock at all?
Dan Szymborski

THEREs the ficitional guy!

Headline I just saw: "Is it time for the Mets to trade red-hot Curtis Granderson" -  your take?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
Well, if they can trick a foolish GM, sure.

How is Beltre still so good?
Dan Szymborski

There's a picture in his house of Scott Rolen aging.

OK, I've used that joke before with Sonny Gray (The Picture of Sonny Gray) and Trevor Cahill

What I'm really asking: how does Zips treat injuries?
For guys like Ryan Zimmerman, how does Zips take into account the fact that they might be healthy now, and how might that factor into future projections? Or, like Rich Hill, does it know that he just doesn't pitch much or does it know he's injured and adjust accordingly?
Dan Szymborski
3:00
ZiPS does take into consideration injuries, but it's in a broad sense.
There are essentially dummy variable for broad types of injury and legnth of disabled list stay

You can only get so detailed with this kind of information.

Should the Mets pick up Bartolo?  Sad to ask about a player with a 45.00 FIP, but it's not crazy.....
Dan Szymborski
3:01
They should pick him up, but make sure to use the legs and not the back.

as a new member I am trying to figure out how you come up with win% on todays games
Dan Szymborski

I didn't make 'em!

Given so many people arw buried in their phones, How long before someone is actually killed by one of Judge's laser beams?
Dan Szymborski

People have  been oblivious to baseballs for awhile.
I'm not sure a 115 MPH ball is *that* much more dangerous than 105 MPH ball, I think to be fatal you gotta hit the person the right way and they have to be really oblivious.

Has anyone ever called you Danforth? I always enjoy made up fake longer versions of names (ex. Jimothy) and was wondering your thoughts on them.
Dan Szymborski
3:02
They have not.
I've been called DJ Szyzzle though.

What's up with Alonso's recent skid? He is not quite as transformed as we thought?
Dan Szymborski
3:03
He would still have ups and downs.
