Do you think Dylan Bundy can succeed as a starter? That fastball is legit and seems to have some good secondary pitches if he can command them better.
Dan Szymborski
12:58
I think he can, though I obviously worry about his arm
Josh

Why does pitcher handedness affect how fast a BATTER can get out of the box? Or are you talking about a rhp pitching to a lhp, while lhp is batting (presumably) from left side?
Dan Szymborski
12:58
Because a righthander will face more lefthanded batters than the lefthander and the lefthanded batters will put the ball in play more often against them

Strawberry or coffee ice cream?

Strawberry

Does ice cream taste better in a little plastic helmet at a baseball game?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
I'm not big on ice cream, but if I eat it, I don't eat it in hot environments.
I don't like my food being a race against time

My cat's name is Higgins. Is he any relation to Fangraphs staff write Dylan Higgins?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
Ask Dylan.

I have a theory that you've just convinced us of this "algorithm" you call ZiPS, and it's really just your arbitrary assessment of player. What say you?
Dan Szymborski
12:59
Would save time.

Slightly

Do you get a lot of attention from Rangers fans? Disproportionate attention? Do you think it's because you stop by LSB on occasion?
Dan Szymborski
1:00
Possibly because I'm outright willing to call you a troll.

Who says no-- Lucroy to the Indians for Zimmer, Juan Hillman, Mike Clevenger
Dan Szymborski
1:01
Indians I think. Lucroy is useful to them, but I don't they're desperate for him

Green eggs or ham?
Dan Szymborski
1:01
Ham. You shouldn't be eating green eggs.

Crazy how it feels like Arrieta has not been dominant this year, but has 2.68 ERA and 3.04 FIP. I guess its tough to follow up a season with 1.77 ERA and 2.35 FIP. Command is what has been the most eye opening for me.

My first goal is to mod the PC version of No Man's Sky so I can teleport to other players :P
Dan Szymborski
1:01
I think that's everyone's
Matt

Most overrated sports movie? Field of dreams?
Dan Szymborski
1:02
The Natural
Field of Dream is up there though
But they hacked away a lot of the essence of the Malamud
Matt

You have a cart made of steam? How does it hold things?
Dan Szymborski
1:02
Love and elf farts
AJ

The Marlins are in a race, obviously, but if the Sox were willing to offer Moncada for Fern, would the Marlins pull the trigger?
Dan Szymborski
1:03
They might. It's an interesting question.

Former OFer Jordan Schafer is trying to become a pitcher in the Dodgers' system.
Dan Szymborski
1:03
Already hits like one, so he's half there

Why aren't there more 1 vs 1 e-sports type games? People seem generally unhappy with a lot of the "one jerk teammate can ruin your experience" aspect of League of Legends but there doesn't seem to be other games in the e-sports niche that are 1v1 now that competitive Starcraft is virtually dead (unless Hearthstone counts). Thoughts?
Dan Szymborski
1:03
There's more dynamic with teams though.
Matt
1:03
Considering you work at home, on average every month, how many consecutive days do you go without stepping foot outside?
Dan Szymborski
1:03
My mailbox is outside
1:04
There's probably only a day or two each month that I don't go outside
Matt
1:04
Have you ever thought of rebranding "working from home" to "living at work"? It makes you sound like more of a go getter, no?
