And if I grew one, I'd probably look like Gacy, which  nobody wants

Eloy > Tucker , Martes > Cease so pretty close no?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
If we're talking winter, I'd go Martes/Tucker over Eloy/Cease
John

What are your thoughts on Addison Russell offensively the next two years? Top 10 offensive shortstop?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
Edge of top 10, but good glove.

Did the Quintana trade just set a steep price for the rest of the starting pitching market? Or are the other starting pitcher prices more or less unchanged after this trade?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
No market changes.  This was about the going rate for Quintana's abilities/contract.
Most pitchers aren't as interesting.
Johnny Cueto
2:41
What uniform will I be wearing on September 1st and what about in 2018?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
I suspect in the end, the hurdles of trading him is Giants over the field.
JD Martin
2:42
ZiPS question, does the system take into account in-season velocity changes for projecting pitchers ROS?  If so how much of a factor does it play compared to other things?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
No.  In-season is less sophisticated than the normal year-to-year version.
RotoLando
2:42
This is bad news...for Courtney Hawkins
Matt

How often do you play the Sima and create Dan Simborsky?
Dan Szymborski
2:42
I create weirder people than me.

What would you have given up for Q, if you were Jeff Luhnow? And who do they go after now?
Dan Szymborski
2:43
If *I* had been the Astros, I would have given the Sox less than the Cubs did.
I'm just not as motivated as the CUbs are at this juncture.
Xander
2:43
Saw somewhere that Astros trade for DeGrom would have to *start* with Bregman, Tucker and Martes. Is that something was you could see either team biting on?
Dan Szymborski
2:44
Well, the Mets should, the Astros shouldn't.
2:45
Nor would the Astros consdier this.
I don't think.
Dodgers
2:45
Is their any chance JD Martinez ends up in LA?
Dan Szymborski
2:45
Probably not.
Dodgers
2:45
Would Alex Verdugo be enough for Verlander if Los Angeles took his whole contract on?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
Alex Verdugo for the privilege of getting Verlander at 2.33/65?  Tigers should jump at that and won't.  Dodgers should hang their heads in shame.
Xolo

Does Wil Myers ever step up and out of the ~115 wRC+ range?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
Wil Myers is a good player.  He is what he is at this point, I think.
Matt
2:46
Why is everyone talking about the Cubs' window? Who cares?! And, to that point - which window are they even talking about? I've seen their new offices, and its covered in windows. Facing all directions.
Dan Szymborski
2:46
If you worked in an office and it was 95 degrees outside, you'd damn well care about the windows!
Matt
2:47
@FakePeterGammons broke the Adam Eaton trade, and none of the "real" writers would acknowledge him.
CM
2:47
Think the O's would be willing to move Gausman at this point? He's the kind of guy that I'd like to see the Cubs target.
Dan Szymborski
2:47
I think that trading Gausman doesn't make sense for the O's

Galileo is such a cool name for a cat!  We have a cat named Jumpy (formerly feral) and she's skittish all of the time.  Wanna trade cats, lol?
Dan Szymborski
2:47
I'm very attached to Galileo after 18 1/2 years!
2:48
You take any of my cats and I'll hunt you down and wont' even give you an hour head start, most dangerous game-style.
Julio Teheran
2:48
Over 7 seasons, my career ERA is 3.54 and my WHIP is 1.18.  Explain how I am terrible.
Dan Szymborski
2:48
I didn't say you were terrible.
Less valuable than Quintana is not terrible.
There's no binary in which evaluation is either Jose Quintana or terrible.
