It may, though I don't think anyone's going crazy over Hill

Hey Dan...thoughts on Cheslor Cuthbert? Not getting a ton of buzz...but a 23 year-old with a .748 OPS isn't too shabby. Fantasy value next year? Thanks,
Dan Szymborski
12:24
Not sure about fantasy

Dan, I'm already burned out on Overwatch. Please help.
Dan Szymborski
12:24
Play less? Game burnout is the sign of improper gaming!
Hmm
12:25
Over/under Corey Seager getting 70 xbh?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
I'd take the over

Looks like ZiPS has Harper and Machado slated for nearly identical outputs the rest of the way, with the exception of Harper drawing more BBs. Think that's how it shakes out? Or does Harper turn back into 2015 Harper at some point in the second half?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
So greedy. You act like hitting like Machado is bad

Is there a AAAA-level or 6th starter type the Orioles could acquire? They prob don't have the assets to get an actually decent starter, but they seem to be in a place where even getting another guy on the Vance Worley-tier would improve their rotation.
Dan Szymborski
12:26
Camden happens to be a tough place for one of those AAAA types. I'm not sure hte problem is that the O's need another AAAA type, I think they have those and they just kinda suck in Camden.

Kershaw (68.9%) and Syndergard (69%) have nearly identical strike rates but Kershaw (2%) has walked batters at less than half the rate of Syndergard (4.3%). Is there anything to this or can we expect this to regress?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
It's Kershaw.
Hmm
12:26
Could Joey Votto realistically be traded if obtaining team takes on most of his contract?
Dan Szymborski
12:27
He could. I think he could be traded with less than most of his contract, but I don't think the Reds are interested.

thoughts on david price getting roughed up by the yankees last night?
Dan Szymborski
12:27
David Price did not pitch a great game.
Hakuna Machado
12:27
Thoughts on Zimmerman for the Tigers ROS once back from the neck issue?
Dan Szymborski
12:28
Think he'll be a high #2 guy
Justin

Tommy Pham has a career +130 RC in 250+ PA's - should STL play him everyday and see what they have?
Dan Szymborski
12:28
If not every day, at least more than they do now

What's the BABIP advantage for lefty pitchers vs righty pitchers due to the additional 0.1 to 0.2 seconds it takes for RHB to leave the batters box?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
It's typically around 5 points of BABIP

I'd ask a Twins' question, but why bother at this point.....so I'll just say thinks for all the interesting reading you've provided over the years.
Dan Szymborski
12:31
I like the questions that aren't question so I don't need to do anything.
I'm a lazy man.

Thoughts on Elvis Andrus this year? On pace to have best obp since 2012. Any change in his approach to suggest he can keep this up. He is only 27 years old. Thanks, dw
Dan Szymborski
12:32
I personally have not noticed any approach changes.

Is Riley Pint the kind of draftee that will spend little time in the minors, or is he a bit away from The Show?
Dan Szymborski
12:32
Bit away

WIll Ian Desmond be vindicated for turning down the Nats extension offer this offseason?
Dan Szymborski
12:32
It's possible. He's had a terrific season
Would you rather
12:33
Speculatively own Bregman or Gurriel for the remainder of this season?
Dan Szymborski
12:33
Bregman
Matt

The Cubs trade for King Kong, and the Rangers for The Hulk. Who wins the world series now?
Dan Szymborski
12:34
Probably Rangers. King Kong was defeated by 1930s planes after all
Nick
12:34
This offseason do you see a Chris Sale trade? Cubs or Red Sox seem to be a good fit with all of their position player prospects that are up/close.
Dan Szymborski
12:34
I do not
Arnold Sillywagger
12:34
Would the Indians trade Zimmer or Frazier for Lucroy? And should they?
Dan Szymborski
12:34
I don't think they will. I'd be no-inclined, but I'm not sure really
