What age were you when you first made zips? How long did it take to make?
Dan Szymborski
2:54
I initially put it together in 2002 and 2003, so I would have been 23 in the first half of 2002 and 25 after June 2003.
I didn't think at the time to record the exact dates and stuff

When is Rhys Hoskins going to get the call? Is he as good a ballplayer as Matthew Rhys is an actor (on The Americans; best wigs on television too)
Dan Szymborski
2:54
The Phillies need to figure out just where to play him
Matt
2:54
Homer Bailey is also a great old school name
Rasta

Szym Szyma, who got the keys to my Beema

if a position player needs Tommy John Surgery, does it have a shorter recovery time than for pitchers?
Dan Szymborski
2:55
Usually

Why is there not much interest nationally on the MLB draft? Too many prospect to know? Players don't make an immediate impact so fans are less interested? Would the ability to trade any pick help?
Dan Szymborski
2:55
college baseball isn't that high profile and the players are going to take a lot longer to be in the majors than in NFL/NBA
Cueto
2:55
What's up with me, man? My odds of not opting out have increased a bit, eh?
Dan Szymborski
2:55
Yes, but again, I still think in the end you'll be good enough and opt out
Rasta

Fulmer... #2?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
Fulmer's a good pitcher

ZIPS ROS plus YTD results show that I should win my league by 20 points (humble brag). How much variance should I expect in the ROS stats to calculate my chance of not winning?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
I don't even know where to start!
ECinDC
2:56
How did I get 4 questions in, in no one else asking questions
Dan Szymborski
2:56
I'm fairly random with them, sometimes you're lucky
Georgip

Can anything stop Sogard?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
Something Norse-related, I'd assume.
WILSON CONTRERAS
2:56
My BABIP is .315 and my hard% is 30.1 yes I'm striking out 26.1 but 91 wRC+ seems odd

How would that even work? Szymbory is a place not a name and I don't think I used other POlish words!
John
2:57
Segura extension thoughts?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
I think it's very reasonable
Wes
2:57
How much value does Javier Baez have in a dynasty league? If you were a rebuilding team would you trade Miggy for him?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
Depends on the size of the league really. I think I'd aim higher for a player with the upside this year of Miggy.
Rick
2:57
How inconceivable is it that the Mariners are sitting at .500 with the ridiculous run of injuries they have had? Once (if) they return to some semblance of health, is it not reasonable to expect them to take off?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
The league's not super strong right now remember!
Rick
2:58
Are you on the James Paxton as an ace train?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
I'm rapidly getting there
Tom
2:58
Are you a fan of David Dahl's fantasy potential for a dynasty league?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
Yes
Ricky
2:58
O/U Zunino wRC+ ROS of 90?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
It'll like be 60 or 150
FireDrayton

Bregman's season so far has been....yeesh. You still a believer?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
Yes
Chuncey Wiggins
2:58
Player most likely to have Dorito crumb stains on their jersey...
