Dan's biggest Flan

"Albies soon?" got through so I'll try this: Mondesi soon?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
WTF knows what the Royals are thinking.
3:12
They should bring him up, but at short to replace Alcides.
3:13
But they still dont' reven realize they have a shortstop-shaped object at shortstop.

What do you hate the most? Nick markakis, carson cistulli or the entire month of April?
Dan Szymborski
3:13
All of these things need to be shot into the sun.

3:14
any update on andrew heaney status?
Dan Szymborski
3:14
Last I saw he was throwing some bullpens.
Billy Beane
3:14
Danforth who is the MLB player who is most interesting to you at the moment?
Dan Szymborski
3:14
Bellinger
Dan's biggest Flan
3:14
Agreed... talked to a Royals fan about it and they said "Esky" is untouchable smh
Dan Szymborski
3:14
If you were my biggest flan I would have consumed you already.

I've read before about how a batter in a slump (or just out of the blue) changes the kind of bat he uses and starts hitting much better. Is there any literature out there about the dynamic of bats to offensive production/results?
Dan Szymborski
3:15
Not that I know of.
Simply because the data is a bit tricky to get.
So stuff like bats is still spun up int he quasi-mythological baseballverse.

Will Soler ever put it together or is he a AAAA guy instead of a big leaguer?
Dan Szymborski
3:16
I don't think he's a lost cause.
I think he was ill-served in a couple of ways developmentally
He was likely promoted to quickly, getting very little minor league experience
and his health has been  afactor
But the talent is still tehre.
Eno Sarris
3:17
What do you make of Paxton's recent struggles? Think he'll rebound to be a top 15 SP like he was pre-DL?
Dan Szymborski
3:17
I'm not sure he's not still hurting.
AND IF YOU'RE THE REAL ENO LINK A LOCK OF YOUR HAIR
Booger
3:17
I assume Urias' injury ends any talk of him becoming an ace. What are the chances of him becoming a useful starter?
Dan Szymborski
3:17
He's so young and it's way too soon to end talks
Nick Markakis
3:17
Why do I deserve to be shot into the sun?  If anything it's the trolls that ask questions about me.  And if not me, they could be asking about Tim Tebow.  So count your blessings!
Dan Szymborski
3:17
That's fair.  The Nick Markakis questioneers should instead.
Billy Beane
3:17
Danforth, what baseball player is closest to Carson Cistulli?
Dan Szymborski
3:18
A.J. Pierzynski?
Ben Z
3:19
Who is the player in MLB right now most capable of out-WAR-ing Trout over a full heathy season? I feel like Bryce did it in 2015 but I can't quite remember. Still him or no?
Dan Szymborski
3:19
Harper or one of the 3B.
Billy Beane
3:20
Danforth, ZiPs has Bellinger at 40 HRs this year. You taking the over or the under on that? Or are you trusting your model and holding at 40?
Dan Szymborski
3:20
I'm on board.
My name is Judge...
3:20
Bigger Chicago dumpster fire:  Adam LaRoche quitting because they wouldnt let his son bat leadoff, Chris Sale going Edward Scissorhands on throwback jerseys, or Miguel Montero calling out his teammate with the truth?
Dan Szymborski
3:20
I'll leave that for the peanut gallery
mike sixel
3:20
The Twins are, I believe, still projected to be the 2nd worst AL team RoS......what would make that change*, if anything? *realistically
Dan Szymborski
3:20
Not having a 34-42 pythag would help.
And on that note, time for me to shuffle off this digital coil.
