In your opinion, outside of Trout, who's the most valuable player in baseball right now, considering contract and age.
Dan Szymborski

Correa
Victor

Jeff Passan wrote that TEX would part with Gallo for Moore or Odorizzi or Smyly... Surely that's an over payment for those guys, right?
Dan Szymborski
12:14
Probably. Depends which one of those we're talking about.

What do/should the Mets do at this point? I really want them to get Valencia/Hill but I feel like they'd have to put a big dent in their farm to do so. Is it worth it?
Dan Szymborski
12:14
I think go the course. If they were tied or a game or two out of the division, I'd endorse more aggression.

If Rich Hill is out of the picture because of his blister issue, who is the best starting pitcher on the trade market?

I'm only half-joking. People were talking about the LUCAS HARRELL trade market this weekend. Shelby Miller's getting some interest

The Cubs and Yankees have both postured about Miller and Schwarber at different times. Assuming both are tradeable, does it take more than just Schwarber to get Miller? What else do you think it would take?
Dan Szymborski
12:15
I don't think the Cubs do it just for Miller.
12:16
If, say, Soler had a better season and looked to make Schwarber more expendable, maybe.
Toby

Since he started using that changeup more, Michael Fulmer has a sub-1 ERA (65.1 IP). Obviously he can't keep up that level of run prevention, but how legit is this? Also if he ends up qualifying, could he be ROY/CY
Dan Szymborski
12:16
Not this level, but he's very good. I think h'll be in my top 25 for future value next February

Higher fWAR after Almora or Buxton after end of 2016? end of 2017?
Dan Szymborski
12:16
I'm still going to say Buxton, but I'm getting anxious
Ben

Does Gurriel have Zips?
Dan Szymborski
12:16
Haven't done 'em yet.
12:17
I usually try to avoid projecting the Cuban players until someone makes me or tricks me.

Do the Marlins pick up Ichiro's option for 2017?
Dan Szymborski
12:17
If one party walks away, I think it'll be Ichiro to retirement not Marlins to decline options

Ketel Marte is chasing a lot of pitches and has a terrible BB%. Do you think he can make some significant improvements, or is this kind of player in the MLB?
Dan Szymborski
12:19
I think this is the type of player he will remain.

By how much WAR does Mike Trout beat Carlos Correa 2017-2021?
Dan Szymborski
12:19
By some. More than ZiPS things since ZiPS is obsessed with Correa
Stephen

Steve Brault has a low 90s fastball, a good changeup and a decent slider. His AAA (SSS) strikeout rate is outrageous and his projections are good. Why shouldn't he be starting in the pirates rotation instead of Jeff Locke and/or Chad Kuhl?
Dan Szymborski
12:20
The Pirates do tend to be conservative. Brault still doesn't have a ton of high minors experience and he can't get by in the majors just on stuff.
Drassel
12:20
chance to see Joey Gallo with NY Yankees ?
Dan Szymborski
12:20
At least a chance.
Josh
12:20
what are realistic contributions from Morneau?
Dan Szymborski
12:21
Meh. Which is actually pretty good for a team that has Arrrggh at DH.
Paco
12:21
Do the Dodgers really need to do anything at the deadline besides get a reliever or 2? The rotation seems strong with BMac & Ryu back & Kershaw Wood & De Leon being ready to help soon. The offense was a problem but Puig, Grandal & Kendrick have all started hitting & I don't see them replacing AGON
Dan Szymborski
12:22
I actually dont' think they should make big splashes unless they tighten it up in the next 10 days
Hmm
12:22
I know he's been numero uno for awhile now, but Gurriel is 32 years old and may bust. Does he really stand in Bregman's way?
Dan Szymborski
12:22
No.
Let's say that Gurriel turns out to be good. Has anytime ever had a problem "OH NOES WE HAVE TOO MANY QUALITY INFIELDER, LETS PANIC PEOPLE!"
Matt

More Yanks questions. If they move Beltran, what are the channces Aaron Judge finds himself in RF this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:23
Pretty good, I think.
12:24
But a Beltran trade depends on the baseball people being victorious over the stupid people.

Is Rich Hill's blister going to cost the A's a lot of prospects?
