If an allstar got traded today, would he change All-star teams?
Dan Szymborski
12:43
I'll be honest - I'm actually not sure at all. So this is more a question for you guys, just in case someone knows something offhand
Because I can't think about and answer this question in 60 seconds.

Who bites the bullet and drops a top-50 prospect for Hill? Mets? Red Sox?
Dan Szymborski
12:44
Marlins?

What do you think the chances are David Stearns actually keeps Lucroy? There's been a lot of talk that he's not going to let him go unless a team meets the high demand he's had on him from the beginning.
Dan Szymborski
12:44
There's some chance it carries over for awhile, but there's no real reason to never trade him

Re: Vampires. It's Zobrist, he already doesn't age.

Would you rather drink two cups of coffee right before heading for bed or take a sleeping pill right after you wake up?
Dan Szymborski
12:44
Sleeping pill right after I wake up

Are you nervous about Thor?
Dan Szymborski
12:45
No.
I'm going to have to start banning these Are You Nervous About ________ After The Last Two Weeks? questions

Next couple of prospects to get called up for fantasy purposes? Guys like Bregman are already gone, Arcia or Margot worth stashing you think?
Dan Szymborski
12:45
Arcia more than Margot.
Padres have been moving slowly
Mike
12:46
Josh Reddick for Paulo Orlando and Alec Mills. Who says no?
Dan Szymborski
12:46
A's
Nigel Thornberry
12:46
Puig out of baseball in 2 years? Not at his age or with that arm. He is struggling and his numbers are still respectable aside from the slug%
Dan Szymborski
12:47
He could be. If he's hovering around a .700 OPS with his rep, he's not going to get a lot of in terest
Colin
12:47
What would a Sonny Gray trade package look like?
Dan Szymborski
12:47
Less than it did before. A's should have traded him this winter

Kim has basically outperformed his projections which were already pretty good. Is this sustainable? Can he be a future all star?
Dan Szymborski
12:49
I think star's a stretch, but he should be able to hit liek Mark Grace for awhile
Bork
12:49
Infante was the heart of the fans too. Why do you think he was being voted in so consistently?
Dan Szymborski
12:49
Heh

What can Oakland hope for in return for Rich Hill?
Dan Szymborski
12:49
Well, as long as we're talking hope, Mike Trout
EC
12:49
If Stras keeps it up, Cy Young in the future?
Dan Szymborski
12:50
Yes. Kershaw's a short-term unknown and while writers have moved off win-loss, it can break a tie
I'd actually vote for Bumgarner right now though

More value to the Orioles in getting another corner OF (allowing them to move Trumbo to DH) or in getting a SP? Obviously a quality SP will help more but there doesn't seem to be many on the market.
Dan Szymborski
12:51
Getting a SP would be more value, but the O's are going to have trouble getting a SP that matters
Rich Hill may now be the best Sp available this winter
12:52
Unless Otani gets posted
Hill won't come cheap
After hill, you have Garcia and Peavy, neither are likely to be traded
So you have to look at guys that aren't FAs this year. And they'll be expensive and the O's farm sucks.

Devon Travis hit a one handed HR recently. Just let that sink in.
