Stolen bases can skewed in the low minors. Where do you think Moncada's power/speed will end up in the majors?
Dan Szymborski
12:00
Yeah, stolen bases do tend to go wacky in the low minors.
12:01
I expect him to still be a good SB player in the majors, but more in the 25-35 range when he does reach the majors. The power is interesting he does have the build that he should develop more.

Since AJ Reed is struggling, could you see the Astros calling up Bregman to slide in at 1st?
Dan Szymborski
12:01
No
12:02
Remember Springer's first 10 games or so in the majors? The Astros don't tend to panic.

What do you see Eloy Jiménez ceiling being?
Dan Szymborski
12:04
Pretty high if his plate discipline shakes out a little better. He probably has even more power than he's shown so far -- low level minors have a lot of gigantic pitchers' parks -- but he's still raw

Dave teased that for the first time, ZiPS 5 year projection liked someone better than Trout, but wouldn't tell who it is. It's gotta be Bartolo Colon, right? What does ZiPS say Bartolo Colon will look like in 5 years, and does it come with weight projections?
Dan Szymborski
12:06
That's 5th-year projection, not the whole 5-year period, just to be clear.
And I'll spoil it. It's Jose Vizcaino, obviously.
SORRY DAVE

Thanks for halting your pikachu hunt to chat with us!

12:06
I've mostly been watching the whole thing rather th an contributing!
12:07
I've got like two big projects going on and can't be galavanting around fighting giant crabs in bars quite yet
Bill Heywood
12:07
THE PEOPLE DEMAND A BARTOLO COLON 5 YEAR WEIGHT PROJECTION, MAKE IT HAPPEN ZiPS!
Dude Bro

Hey Dan, which character do you think is most overpowered in Overwatch RIGHT NOW THIS VERY SECOND?
Dan Szymborski
12:07
Lucio
Err Lúcio
Is that where the mark is?
Dan
12:07
From a sad Cubs fan, that Adam Warren ZiPS ain't looking as great as it was pre-season! :-(
Dan Szymborski
12:08
Yeah, recent events have not helped it
PL
12:08
Better than 50% chance that Marcus Semien ends up with 30+ HRs?
Dan Szymborski
12:08
If we're talking over 50, I'd still take the under.
Josh Nelson
12:08
Let's say there was a skills challenge during the All Star break. What challenges would you actually like to watch?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
Footrace! Arm strength. Maybe some kind of weird precision hitting thing
Kevin

How does ZiPS feel about Andrew Benintendi? Steamer projects a 103 wRC+ for him right now.
Dan Szymborski
12:09
ZiPS likes him very much, but since Dave's going to be talking about him (or has already) I dont' want to spoil anything

What do you see for Puig going forward? What does he need to fix at the plate to get back to '13-'14 Puig, which was a very good version of Puig.
Dan Szymborski
12:09
No clue whatsoever
Zach
12:09
Which of these pitchers would you pick to have the best 2nd half bounce back: Liriano, Kazmir, Samardzija, Chen, Corbin?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
Shark
And again, saving the offtopic ones for the Lightningn Round
Ryan

In a dynasty keeper league who would you keep and who has the better upside long term between the both struggling Jason Heyward & Yasiel Puig?
Dan Szymborski
12:11
Heyward's safer, but Puig has more upside - a lot of Heyward's value is always going to be tied up in defense, which is fairly irrelevant for fantasy.
But Puig could also be out of baseball in two years
PL
12:11
How many HRs will the league leader have at the end of the year?
Dan Szymborski
12:12
Let's say 44.

Do the Cubs' recent struggles make them more likely to pursue upgrades? Still focused on relief or maybe a starter now?
