Do you believe the Astros can win their division and why?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:46
They can, because I think they have a better roster htan Texas. They're unlikely to because 4 1/2 game leads, as small as they sound, hold up more often than they dont'

If you could retire today in full economic comfort, what would you do to fill out your days?

What I do now
12:47
I am paid money to write about baseball and video games. What dumbass would walk away from that?
What kind of sick person wants to do nothing with their life but spend money?

Which current MLB position player do you think would have the best chance at making a Matt Bush-style late career transition to pitching?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:47
Francoeur
He has a good arm, a little bit of experience, and there's no chance he doesn't go away for like another decade
Hmm
12:48
Of retired hitters 50 years of age or older, who would have the best chance of hitting a Syndergaard fastball if they picked up a bat today?

Bonds

Passan says Schwarber only gets moved if its Miller and Chapman. Would you do that deal as Chicago? New York?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:48
Miller *and* Chapman it suddenly becomes more interesting

The 2016 June First Entry draft (recently completed, including the closure of the signing period) resulted in one guy in the top 350 or so, not signing.. Who from this year's class makes it to the ML the fastest?..

I can see Arizona deciding to stick Duplantier in the pen and him get to MLB very quickly

Somebody around here was saying CLE should go out and "get" Miller but he doesn't seem to be their type. Too big a move, too heavy a price. Agree or disagree?

They have other needs

What's your first goal you'll want to accomplish when playing No Mans Sky?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:51
Them releasing the game finally so I can put it in my Steam cart.

If the Rockies realized that should be trading Cargo, what would be a realistic price? Would Clevinger, Naquin and Plutko (or some other C-level prospect) be enough assuming no salary relief?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:52
If the Rockies offered this trade, I would hope that nobody in the Indians camp died laughing.

Would you rather have to wear socks for gloves in the summer or wear gloves for socks in winter?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:53
Glove for socks in winter
I rarely wear socks anyway
Even in the winter, I typically only wear socks if there's a good chance I'm doing some trudging through some kind of icy stuff

What would be a realistic trade return for CarGo right now?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:54
If no salary relief, one good prospect out of the top 50

Which is the most likely possibility to move Matt Kemp for the Padres:

Another GM has a nervous breakdown.

(with respect to the question I posed earlier: 2016 MLB Draft fastest to the ML's.. I suggest Eric Lauer for the Padres, an SP from Kent State and Nick Senzel, a 3B from Tennessee drafted by the Reds)
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:55
Thing is, neither team is known for promoting aggressively

Thoughts on the NES Classic Edition? The lack of expandability is a little disappointing, but $60 for 30 games really has piqued my interest.
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:55
Here's the problem: it has to be better than emulation to be worth buying.
12:56
It's cool and it has retro factor, but not for 30 games and for $60.
Give me *every* NES game somehow, yeah that's cool and I'll think abou tit.
12:57
But if I can't play Destiny of an Emperor and other Mega Mans and River City Ransom and Tecmo Super Bowl and Maniac Mansion? Meh.

Favorite ice cream?
