Whew, there's a queue! Well done, prince of darkness.

What can the White Sox offer to the Cubs for Jaimer Candelario?
Dan Szymborski
1:59
It's a little tricky matching these teams up as the stuff that the Cubs would need isn't really waht the White Sox have.

Would you trade Machado for Bellinger and Rosario in a dynasty?
Dan Szymborski
2:00
That's pretty tough. Especially if Machado ever gets SS qualifying in your league.

What does ZIPS think of Chuck Taylor?
Dan Szymborski
2:01
I'll have to run it.

Szymchat Szymchat. What you gonna do? What you gonna do when you thought it was supposed to be on Wednesdays and waited for like an hour but it never came and then you realized it was on Thursday.

Offered Stroman and Gardner for Trea Turner
Dan Szymborski
2:01
After the week I had on Twitter, I don't want to talk about Trea Turner trades!
I had a slew of very angry Padres fans at my comment that nobody would give Turner and Ross for Myers today.

McCullers or Springer in OBP/QS keeper?
Dan Szymborski
2:02
They're fairly equivalent, it depends on what you have and where you stand.

Is 2017 the year a Colorado Rockies pitcher wins ROY? Hoffman, Marquez, Senzatela, Freeland all shoving it right now.
Dan Szymborski
2:03
If the season ended right now, you would see Senzatela and Freeland get significant votes.
2:04
But I'm not sold on them. I'm higher on Hoffman, but he doesn't have a lot of IP yet.
(Especially unsold on Freeland)
It's not as deep a rookie class last year. My vote for Seager was easy, but 2/3 took a long time.
2:05
If he's up to stick, I expect Bellinger to be the favorite.

what do the 1B and the guy who just got a hit usually talk about? I just asked Eno and he said he wasn't sure.
Dan Szymborski
2:05
I've never really asked, to be honest.
Never gave it much thought, that feels a bit like none of my business if that makes sense.

Is Tyler Flowers for real?
Dan Szymborski
2:06
I've physically seen that he exists and Dave Stewart is out of the league, so I dont' think any GMs would sign fictitious players.
If you're asking me if he's a .420 BABIP player, I think you know what that answer is.
Baryolo Cologne
2:06
Talk to me about Castellanos. Everywhere I read he deserves better. Hitting the ball hard, BABIP low, etc....should we expect a breakout coming here?
Dan Szymborski
2:07
I think he's still a legit 115 OPS+ type of players.
palyer.
player.
But, of course, the problem is that he's not actually a good player at third with a 115 OPS+

If you were Dave Roberts, where would you bat Gonzo? The power's gone and it's not coming back.
Dan Szymborski
2:08
Probably around 7th
If circumstances hadn't cleared space for Bellinger, I'd bat him as a pinch-hitter, if you catch my drift

Netted Trea Turner for Stroman and Gardner. I have a stacked outfield and Haniger coming back soon and want to replace Tim Anderson at SS. Also just picked up Jimmy Nelson and Chase Anderson to fill in for Stroman. Smart move or blunder?
Dan Szymborski
2:09
I don't think it's a bad move.

Do you believe the minor league "Bash Bro's"
of Hoskins/Cozens become a thing in the majors? What are your thoughts on those two?
Dan Szymborski
2:09
Hoskins is easily the more interesting of the two right now.

Zack Wheeler is having himself a pretty decent season, huh? Velo and pitch selection look very similar to pre-surgery numbers as well.
Dan Szymborski
2:11
Wheeler's one of the few pitchers on the Mets to improve his stock in 2017.
I'm getting more and more optimistic on Wheeler every week.
