I would guess he'll hit the market.  Even in a short-term deal, he could probably get 2/40 or something
RotoLando

Wow, not only is it Szym Chat time, there is ice cream in the conference room!  This does not sound like a trap at all
Dan Szymborski
2:26
THE ICE CREAM IS A LIE.  Just like the cake.

do you think that the Dodgers will use Walker Buehler out of the bullpen in September and the postseason?
Dan Szymborski
2:27
Doesn't strike me as likely unless they start running into issues.  He's not on the 40-man.
Wade Boggs
2:27
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
John
2:27
Do the Padres get a top 100 prospect for Brad Hand?
Dan Szymborski
2:27
Yes, but more likely in the bottom half.

How many times does Moncada strike out tonight?
Dan Szymborski

2

Who has higher ceiling/floor between Perdomo/Lamet?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
I think Lamet.  He's still very raw, so there's a lot of upside.

What was Detroit thinking with the Martinez trade? If it's the last day before the deadline, fine, take what you can get. But what was the harm in waiting two weeks to see if an outfielder for a contender gets injured?
Dan Szymborski
2:29
The harm in waiting is that you don't even get that.  There are a limited number of teams that are going to pay handsomely for a one-win corner outfield type
2:30
(That's one win remaining, not one win pers season)
And a trade two weeks before the deadline is essentially 25% more value for the acquiring team.
The risk is you get even less.
Kimbo Mice
2:31
Will Britton really fetch as much as Chapman or Miller given his mysterious arm troubles this year?
Dan Szymborski
2:31
No
Unfortunately, he's more comparable to Wade Davis trade than the other two
Rob
2:31
Will Amed Rosario ever get promoted to the bigs?
Dan Szymborski
2:32
Terry Collins is really excited about the Jeff Huson kid and this other guy Mark Grudzielanek is going to be a fight for a roster spot.
Maybe after that, if the team's desperate.
Brent Kent
2:32
What happened to Lucroy?
Dan Szymborski
2:32
I really don't know!
Nate
2:32
Should the Giants demand a similar return for Strickland as the Padres are asking for Brad Hand?
Dan Szymborski
2:33
I like Hand a little better, but they should expect a reasonable prospect.
Matt
2:33
How would typing "MAIN SCREEN TURN ON" to turn on your main screen be a useful strategy? How would you know where you were typing it if your main screen was not yet on?
Dan Szymborski
2:33
That's me talking to you guys.
My name is Judge...
2:33
is swarzak a 2nd or 3rd tier reliever in this market?  does he get traded in July or August waiver deal?
Dan Szymborski
2:33
Lower tier than either Strickland or Hand, for sure.

So a hot dog is essentially a smaller log of bologna, if I slice up the hot dog like bologna is it then undoubtedly a sandwich? And if not, then is a bologna sandwich really a sandwich? Also, is a hot dog bun not similar to the loaf of bread used at subway?
Dan Szymborski
2:34
Subway isn't a sub if the buns are hinged.
And why are you eating at Subway?

What do you think of JD in Arizona?
Dan Szymborski
2:34
A reasonable fit at a position ARizona has gotten little from.
Panama
2:34
Glasnow and KBryan Hayes for Solarte and Brad Hand? Fair for Pirates and Padres
Dan Szymborski
2:35
Not sure what the Pirate motivation is.
Brent Kent
2:35
What does Darvish command on the open market and where do you think he goes?
Dan Szymborski
2:35
Save this for winter!
