White Sox should trade Tommy Kahnle, right? What is suitable return for a guy like him that is posting elite numbers, but doesnt have the track record of a Miller/Chapman/etc.?
Dan Szymborski
2:23
I think you make him the closer for a year and then trade him.
Chris
2:23
Hi Dan, would you trade Robbie ray for Christian yelich  and Danny Duffy?
Dan Szymborski
2:23
Yes

Would you want to incorporate Healey's pitcher similarity scores into ZiPS if you could?
Dan Szymborski
2:24
Wait, what?  Do you mean Tucker Healy?
And why couldn't I?
Though it doesn't really guide guys since he doesn't have a career yet

Is 1B Garrett Cooper worth a pickup in a 12 team mixed league since he was acquired by the Yankees today?
Dan Szymborski
2:24
not in a 12-team mixed
JimboSlice

Really torn with Schwarbs. Is he worth holding onto in a 12tm H2H with people like, Chisenhall/Schebler/Maybin/Puig on the wire?
Dan Szymborski
2:24
In this situ, no.

Lots of names have 5 consonants in a row.
Dan Szymborski
2:25
I think there's some symbol over the z over the name if you go back to Poland
but yeah, I'm not doing that in either way

Do you see any team getting a bigger package for a pitcher this deadline than the WSox just did?
Dan Szymborski
2:25
No.  I think this was about the offer.

Does anyone else, when they see Biagini's name in print, think of that line from the moneyball movie when the new husband is like, "oh, and I heard you lost Gia... Giam... Giambani??"

What should the Cards be looking to do this deadline?  Should they be buyers, or just holders?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
I think they're buyers for reliever or two, probably should be tinkerers elsewhere

With what the White Sox just got for Quintana. Should the Pirates definitely dangle Cole and Cutch out there and see what they can get?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
I would.
Unless the offers are terrible, Cutch would be in a new uniform in August.

Better cutting of a Q: Chicago White Sox today or the lead singer of Live in the 90s?
Justin
2:29
With what Quintana just fetched back for the White Sox, what could Cole fetch back for the Pirates?
Dan Szymborski
2:29
Certainly less, I feel.
Michael

Who's the next starter most likely to get moved in your opinion? Position player?
Dan Szymborski
2:30
I wouldn't be surprised to see Gray go and J.D. Martinez.
Blackburn

I thought the Cubs overpaid again, just like they did for Chapman last year.
Dan Szymborski
2:30
They overpaid in value, but they didn't overpay for tempo.

As a self-professed stat nerd, why are you so bad at stats? I'll hang-up and listen...

Heh

Thinking of Acuna, what are your thoughts on prospects who move through levels in the minors this quickly?  Thinking it through, it seems like if they don't stick at a level long enough, they may keep moving on before the scouting report catches up to them and never need to learn to adjust or address weaknesses.
Dan Szymborski
2:30
There's a few things here
Guys that blow through minors tend to be the ones that are supremely talented, because it's not easy
2:31
Though I think the ones that do have a significant flaw can use some consolidation time in the high minors
