Do The Cubs need to coax Jonny Gomes out of retirement?
Dan Szymborski
3:04
He's great at parades.  The ratio of his actual Royals contribution to his speaking time at the celebrations was incredibly low.

My favorite squadron, the Ny Mets, are not very good right now. Are they closer to a full rebuild or a world series? And if it's the former, should they try to be aggressive at the trade deadline?
Dan Szymborski
3:04
Not sure about full reubild.  Let's call it an aggressive retool.
Start with the ownership/manager.

I thought the major league team payed player salaries for their affiliates regardless of who owns the team.
Dan Szymborski
3:05
Yes, did I word my answer weird?
3:06
Major League teams pay minor league players, but the relationships vary depending on the franchise.
And it's more than pay, there's nutrition, etc.
Sorry, it's what I get for trying to answer as many questions.
3:07
There are a lot of odd situations when the teams aren't owned by same party.
Like the Orioles lost Rochester in large part because ROchester wanted the O's to sign more AAA veteran types and the O's didn't want to pay that
Tim Tebow's Thunder Thighs
3:07
Now that Jordan's replaced Jeb in Jeter's group, can we complete the Triple J by bringing in Bo Jackson?  That way we have all three major sports covered (no, hockey doesn't count).  When Jackson's hip gives out we can call in Tebow off the bench.

The whole Marlins sale sounds like a Netflix show.

Nice Roger Ravbit reference. I named my rabbit Roger when i was a kid. He died.
Dan Szymborski
3:08
Well, he'd be a very old rabbit now.
I assume, I don't actually know how long rabbits live.
In my house, not so long.  Galileo would get along with a rabbit, I think, but Pandora or Mercutio would gut the rabbit.

Isn't growing awful mustaches the *only* reason to grow one?
Dan Szymborski
3:09
Jay Jaffe's mustache is very impressive.
My very nice and understanding companion at the Staten Island event last year said she was very impressed with it.
And she knows Jonah Keri's name now!  She was very excited when she heard his name on NPR.
Aaron Judge
3:10
Do I break Big Mac's rookie record?
Dan Szymborski
3:10
I think it will be very close.
Let's just say yes. Judge is Love.

How long does it take for your computer to spit out zips projections for every player?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
It's about 45 seconds a player on an i7-3930k.
Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe
3:11
Should the Astros be looking to start a deal with Bregman after his churlish tirade against a fan on Twitter?
Dan Szymborski
3:11
That would be s illy
Jerry Dipoto

The trade deadline is creeping up on me...what should i do?

OMG THE CALL IS COMING FROM INSIDE YOUR HOUSE GET OUT NOW

Are you getting enough oxygen?
Dan Szymborski
3:12
I think so.  I have the lung capacity of a god for some reason.

You're no Quintana, Dan.  You must suck
Dan Szymborski
3:12
I totally suck anyway, even in an evaluation system that isn't a binary, Quintana-relative structure

Would you name your first child Szymba, and hold him high above your cats while Elton John music plays in the background?

No
