How does the White Sox's haul for Q compare to what they were (reportedly) offered over the winter?
How does the White Sox's haul for Q compare to what they were (reportedly) demanding over the winter?

I expect around what they would have gotten if they had closed a deal.
And less than reported demands.

could some of Quintana's inflated ERA this year possibly be helped by the fact that the Cubs have better defense and better catchers?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
Well, it would help, but that would be part of their vlaue, not Quintana's

Ken Rosenthal should work for fangraphs. He's not a fit, and I know YOU don't technically work here either, but he's among the top writers in baseball and this is among the top sites.

Will D. Robertson get the White Sox a top 100 prospect, assuming they eat some salary in the deal?

Which team will overpay most for a reliever this year? Or does that not happen as much now that most/all the crappy GMs are gone?
Dan Szymborski
2:59
Nats.  And they may not be wrong to.

Which current contender do you think is headed for the biggest decline next year?

KC

No guarantees with prospects, but Rick Hahn has handled this rebuild pretty well so far, right?
Dan Szymborski

Solid B+

Trades made good, but need to be more.

Are the Phillies in the midst of the worst rebuild of all time?  Do they deserve this? I'm thinking maybe.
Dan Szymborski
3:00
I wouldn't say worst, but I think they -- and ownership may have part to do with it -- felt they were closer than they actually were after 2016.
That Pythag overperformance I suspect was bad for the Phillies long term.

Dan, is a hot dog actually a hamburger? Meat inside a bun, mostly the same toppings, both originated in Germany ...
Dan Szymborski
3:00
A hamburger isn't a form description.

I need to stop hearing about trade rumors for Gray and wondering why the Rockies would trade him...
Travis

Still feel the Braves should trade Freeman? What kind of return would they get in your eyes?
Dan Szymborski
3:01
I still think they should.  They'd get a huge one, I think.
They're not.
Babe Lincoln

Surprising that everyone the White Sox got is so far from MLB?  Just a lot more risk that way.
Dan Szymborski
3:02
MLB teams are the best places to get baseball players.  The NBA doesn't offer that many and I never see them at Meijer.
Jack Zduriencik

Did the Mariners fire me because my name is too hard to spell?
Dan Szymborski
3:02
heh
Billy Beane

So is it Sżymborski or Sźymborski? Why have you been lying to us with your unaccented z?
Dan Szymborski

I said I'm not doing that.

it feels like the entire trade deadline consists of fans concocting dumb trade scenarios, journalist regurgitating rumors, and teams refusing to "pay the price" until of course they do... this is not a question. Also, I don't really think you're bad at stats until you insult my team which you haven't... yet...
Dan Szymborski
3:02
That's the fun of the deadline!

vilnius, the Orioles ownership and management is delusional.  They think they have a playoff team this year and next.
Ronald Acuna
3:02
When the Braves sign Nick Markakis to a six year deal for $120 million, I will be blocked.  Could they trade me and a pitching spec or two for Sonny Gray?
Dan Szymborski
3:02
heh

What would the Mets get say from the Astros for deGrom?
Dan Szymborski
3:03
A fairly similar package to Quintana.
*If* the Astros were itnerested
That's a theoretical thing, not that they would definitely do this.
Connecting...
