In your opinion, what is the greatest album of the 1970s?
Dan Szymborski
2:51
Blood on the Tracks (non-classical category)
Johnny Cueto

Any chance the Astros get desperate and go for me now that Quintana is not available?
Dan Szymborski
2:52
No, why would they be any more desperate than yesterday?

27 1 out innings would have a very bad content/commercial ratio
Dan Szymborski
2:52
They'd just use J.J. Hardy at-bats as commercial breaks.
Local Rays Fan
2:52
Maddon's Fun Guy routine wears out at a rate directly correlated to a team's failure to win championships.
Kiermaier's Piercing Green Eyes
2:52
Despite all preseason expectation, Rays don't move Cobb this year, do they? He, Archer, and Faria are the only dependable starters right now, while Jose De Leon is injured and Honeywell isn't ready.
Dan Szymborski
2:53
THey could.  And I think you're over-negative about Honeywell.
Duane Reede
2:53
When you use a laptop, do you set the laptop on top of your lap, or on a tabletop/desk?
Dan Szymborski
2:53
Usually on my legs.

Lunhow's previously mentioned that he jumped the gun with the early-ish Kazmir trade in 2015 since Price became available a bit later. Do you think that miscalculation played a part in why they didn't get Quintana?
Dan Szymborski
2:53
No, because I don't consider it a miscalculation.
Why are you all so keen on moving Quintana to the Astros?  Again, they're the playoff team that least needs him.
2:54
The only way he really becomes a priority add for the Astros (assuming no trade to Cubs) is if they have reason to believe that their various injured starters won't be around in October.
Big League Choo
2:54
Any chance if Ms stumble out of 2nd half gate that JeDi starts to sell beyond lesser pieces (i.e Valencia, Dyson, etc.)? I realize they don't have much but would Cruz get you anything?
Dan Szymborski
2:54
I'm not sure the Mariners are there.

League using real life salaries.
Dan Szymborski
2:55
Yes, MLB has to pay players in real salaries.  Loria tried to pay players in fictional currencies, but the CBA didn't allow it.

Does Carlos Gonzalez bounce back in the 2nd half? What is his trade value right now?
Dan Szymborski
2:55
A little bit, zero.
Dan Szymborski
2:55
Oh, lol, I didn't understand your question.
2:56
I'm still looking at this sort of data and seeing what predictive value it adds to my normal fuzzy clustering folderol
Bo Bichette
2:56
Fangraphs pre-season grade on my hit tool is 20/40.  This ceiling has been shattered, right?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
That's why pencils have erasers
You'll make a real mess on the monitor otherwise
TKDC
2:56
What do you have against Correlle Prime?
Dan Szymborski
2:56
I think I have his plates.
Dr Johnny Fever
2:57
any idea what  Altherr's ceiling looks like?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
Probably white with a fixture or two and a smoke detector
Billy Beane
2:57
Danforth, what do you think the Cubs would trade to acquire 1 Dan Szymborski? I feel like they would ask for 2 buckets of balls, but settle for one. Thoughts?
Dan Szymborski
2:57
How much of my contract are they picking up?

Earl Weaver Orioles

Pujols has 604 home runs. How many does he retire with?
Dan Szymborski
2:58
660?
That's not a projection, we gotta move quickly
