FanGraphs works today!

And the thunderstorm hasn't knocked out my power.
So I've dodged all of Cistulli's best weapons to get here today.

Zack Britton as a Dodger is highly unfair.
Dan Szymborski

I'm not sure the Orioles are truly motivated enough at this time to pull triggers for real.
Julio Pepper

Is a team that's 41-39 one game over .500, or two games over .500?
Dan Szymborski
2:03
You can argue both ways philosophically.
One game change makes them .500
But it would require them two additional games to get to .500

Your hot take on Quintana Trade...GO!
Dan Szymborski
2:04
A fair package.  Quintana's very valuable.  I dont' think, however, that this was necessarily a better return than they would've gotten in winter if they closed a deal.
Zonk
2:04
What do the Brewers do now before the deadline?  Tweak on the cheap, or should they consider trading top prospects to keep pace with the Cubs?
Dan Szymborski
2:04
Former.  They feel a year too early

Realistically, what are the chances that the Rockies resign Greg Holland?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
I'd go 30/70 against.  But who knows?  This is a team that gave Desmond $70 million to play none of the positions that you'd pay $70 million to Desmond to play.

Dan, why do you hate <insert my team here> and <insert my favorite player here>  so much?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
Because you touch yourself.

In light of the Quintana trade, is it fair to say that Teheran can bring back a prospect like Kyle Tucker + another top 100 prospect from the Astros?
Dan Szymborski
2:05
No.
2:06
Quintana has the better outlook.

Who is the first person to die on the season premier of Game of Thrones?

Random Soldier #4 as the ships land on Westeros?

Ken Rosenthal is posting to Facebook, because his employer doesn't care about written content anymore.  What is happening to baseball writing?  Is Fangraphs going all-video?
Dan Szymborski
2:06
WTF Fox Sports mainly
Kyle
2:07
Are the Cubs done with their SP search or do you see them moving Candelario for a borderline #5 starter-type? Maybe a guy like Jesse Hahn from OAK or Matt Boyd from DET?
Dan Szymborski
2:07
I think this is the pitcher move.
I don't think they have as much to gain for a second, borderliney guy
RotoLando
2:07
Which is a better fit for Eloy Jimenez, Cubs or White Sox?
Dan Szymborski
2:07
Well, White Sox
Troy
2:07
Zips thoughts on Garrett Cooper? Recently traded to the Yankees. MILB depth or possible MLB guy?
Dan Szymborski
2:07
Don't have the ZiPS, but he's improved enough to be an OK fill-in fora  couple years, I think.
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
2:09
What is your take on Mike Zunino?
Dan Szymborski
2:09
He's a superstar offensive catcher and the worst player in the history of baseball, depending on the day.
2:10
Like a weird sports-related Batman villain they discarded when they figured that Harvey Dent made more sense.
"Look, Bob Kane, yeah The Zoonster goes 1-for-30 sometimes, but I'm not sure why Commissioner Gordon would really care about that."

2:11
what do you think the Dodgers should do trade wise this cycle? My feeling is an RP arm and maybe a depth piece in the OF...
Dan Szymborski
2:11
The team is very deep, I t hink they'll do a quiet need-based add.
Jeff's Friend
2:11
Is Aaron Judge really a .300 hitter. Or at least a .290? Does a big second half regression await us?
Dan Szymborski
2:11
I think the BA goes down, but not the power
Pat
2:11
How does the return the ChiSox got today compare to what they asked the Astros for?
