BOOM
MIC
12:04
I don't have one. Because you need one of those boom guys and I'm not hiring someone to stand around my office with one.

Do you know of a metric that addresses disruption? That is, does having a pesky baserunner like Billy Hamilton (assuming he can get on base) affect a pitcher's performance?
Dan Szymborski
12:04
Generally speaking, hitters do worse in at-bats in which there is a pickoff attempt than when there is not and the more pickoffs, the worse the batters do.

If Joey Gallo were called up today to play regularly for the rest of the year, where would you set the over/under for his K%?
Dan Szymborski
12:04
All the tea.

Michael Fiers worth a 2 start pickup this week/ @ tex & @TB
Dan Szymborski
12:05
Meh, he's been so erratic
Hayek

Start the week off good

Arrieta lost a game. Should I be worried about the Cubs' chances to win it all this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:05
Oh, Superman starts the week of good, you start the week off well.
12:06
You should panic - Arrieta losing was one of the things that Bill Murray predicted would happen in Ghostbusters along with dogs and cats living together
I always assumed that Cistulli was Gozer the Gozerian, Volguus Zildrohar, anyway.

Do you have a general methodology for determining whether or not someone belongs in the HOF, e.g. at least 65 career WAR, or do you take it on a case-by-case basis and consider many different factors?
Dan Szymborski
12:06
I don't like hard and fast rules.

Which group has the better WAR at the end of 2016: Braves position players or the Reds bullpen?
Dan Szymborski
12:07
That's almost cruel to think about
ZiPS says the Braves position players
Nathan
12:07
Over/under: profar starts three games per week, ROS
Dan Szymborski
12:07
Over - I think the'll fit him in wherevere they can
einstein2u
12:08
archie bradley? could he be turning a corner?
Dan Szymborski
12:08
It's possible - he actually didn't walk batters in the minors either this year
Well, for him - his walk rate is still likely to be too high
Erik
12:08
What's the likely future for Tommy Joseph? The projection systems are quite pessimistic, but it's conceivable that they can't rate him accurately, as he hasn't been injury-free for years. Is he something like a 2-3 WAR first baseman?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
It's tough, but I'm not sure he's likely an above average 1B, but it's possible given the injuries
12:10
But the Phillies are a lousy team that is rightfully (if tardy) at finding out.
Rather than holding a fantasy camp for Ryan Howard.

Do you think Iglesias gets another shot at starting this season or is the move to the pen for good?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
I think he'll eventually be back in the rotation - the team's concerned about his shoulder right now and there's no reason for them to be aggressive with him
Oliver

What the heck is wrong with Cutch?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
Hey, a great player can occasionally have a bad year!
the kansas city baseball royals
12:11
why do we continue to win games?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
Blood magicks.
reggie

is Boston's pitching going to sink them once the offense regresses?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
It's a serious risk, but here's the thing: None of the AL teams are really all that great
Robbie
12:12
How worried should the Dodgers be about Adrian Gonzalez? ZIPS has him hitting 13 HR this year, and that sounds about right. If i were a betting man I'd probably take the under. GB rate is way up and he's not getting any younger.
Dan Szymborski
12:12
I don't think it's unreasonable, but he's definitely on the downswing
Big Joe Montferrant
12:12
Do I know you?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
Possibly
