I'm watching Hook. RU-FI-O! RU-FI-O!
12:02
Also as a note, since I've been talking Chapman on Twitter for like 12 hours, all Chapman questions will be answered with non-sequiturs.
I actually like Hook.
No, it's not great, but it's fine.

Who made Ryan Schimpf Barry Bonds?

If that's what the Yankees got for Chapman, what would they get from Texas for Miller?
Dan Szymborski
12:04
That's a question I'd like to know the answer too!

Are the Cubs crazy?
Dan Szymborski
12:04
I think it's an overpay, but the non-Torres players aren't really *that* exciting

Braves fan here...is Dansby Swanson overhyped? His stats and promotions are pailing in comparison to Bregman.
Dan Szymborski
12:05
Everybody pales next to Bregman this year - he's gone nutso

On your Kemp tweet when Pomeranz was traded, I imagine that is much more a ownership call than Preller's sadly. Not only cause of money but because they were ones to push for the trade
Dan Szymborski
12:05
Which one? I made a lot.
PL

Should I expect Sean Manaea and Kendall Graveman to continue their nice run of starts?
Dan Szymborski
12:05
More bullish on Manaea
12:06
And note, while I'm saving the political quesitons for the lightning round and am forced to answer them, I'll still hate you for life for bringing up politics.

Wow, the Cubs are giving up a lot. I trust Theo, so is this a good deal?
Dan Szymborski
12:06
Meh
12:07
OK, well I answered my Chapman Q, so enter non-sequitur mode.
Norah

Thoughts on Zach Eflin's potential? Has pitched 2 CG already. Thanks
Dan Szymborski
12:07
Don'tt hink he has any real ace potential, but he'll be a good mid rotation guy I think
Philip
12:07
Wouldn't you rather trade this supposed package for Odorizzi than Chapman?
Dan Szymborski
12:08
Pepsi is Coke that gave up on life.

Hey, Dan. I wanna thank you for the range of questions you tackle in these chats. (Don't worry, I won't ask you about fangraphs inner-workings.) My Teheran for his Berrios and Harvey in a 20-team, 12-keeper? I'm on the edge of contention, but probably can't get there this year.
Dan Szymborski
12:08
I would make that trade if you can't really compete this year

What advice do you have for college students interested in working in baseball analytics?
Dan Szymborski

Be a programming wizard.

Are there any teams that are building their team without winning a championship being the primary goal (and instead focusing on building a perennially playoff or never be terrible team)? Is that a reasonable mindset for a team? Such a team might not trade future value for present value when they are in a playoff race or might sign veterans even in a year where the team isn't likely a playoff team.
Dan Szymborski
12:09
I assume the Rockies.
Padres too, but I like to say Rockies first to get my Purple Row friends mad at me.
JP

Who's got the brighter future, Dahl or Conforto?
Dan Szymborski
12:09
I like both, but think Dahl has more upside.

Playoff odds now have the Astros as a favorite to win the AL West. Who do you think ultimately wins the AL West?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
I would agree that the Astros are very slight favorites now. It's really more of a coin flip

I've mentioned this in the comments to Dave's deadline prediction article, but I'm befuddled that Tyler Chatwood's name has not surfaced at all in the rumor mill. With a relatively thin starter market, not to mention an additional/cheap year of control, he seems like he could be a nice lowkey acquisition to bolster the back of someones rotation. Am I overvaluing him?
Dan Szymborski
12:10
I like Chatwood. I dont' think you're overvaluing him, but I'd wager the Rockies are.
Dan

Anything interesting happening today?
