Odds the Cardinals trade for Sale? They have an incredibly stable rotation right now, but have prospects the White Sox need.
Dan Szymborski
12:21
100-1

Is Giolito just getting cups of coffee or does Washington really not want to stretch him out and therefore he isn't going to do much until 2017 or 2018?
Dan Szymborski
12:21
The Nats like to be conservative.

Is Pollock worth a pick-up without an open DL spot in a re-draft league?
Dan Szymborski
12:21
Depends on the alternative.

How does ZiPS account for a higher expected BABIP in the lower levels? I'm assuming fielding is worse in AA than MLB. But does weaker hitting make up for that? Is expected BABIP about .310 across all levels?
Dan Szymborski
12:22
ZiPS has a model which includes a good bit of hit ball data.
Dan
12:22
So much for that Warren ZiPS projection...
Dan Szymborski
12:22
Yeah, that ones not looking well

Have you ever had a blister that lasted a MONTH?? That time I ran an ultra marathon in too small brand new wingtips my blister only lasted 1 week. What is wrong with Rich Hill?
Dan Szymborski
12:22
Not a month, but I do have a tendency to get eczema on my hands once or twice a year
Josh Beckett used to have blister problems too.
Justin

How does Sale's knife party affect his trade prospects?
Dan Szymborski
12:22
It doesn't.
Avi

I was thinking with the extension the trade is somewhat redeeming. Without it? It reminds me a lot of the Melvin Mora for Mike Bordick trade the Mets made in 2000.
Dan Szymborski
12:23
Eh, depends. I'm not sure the guarantee of horribly overpaying for a closer now rather than risk not being the winner of horribly overpaying for a closer in four months is *that valuable.

Torres, Warren, McKinney, plus for Chapman? Please tell me this is a bad dream.

I'm not paying $2000 a night to stay in a hotel on Boardwalk - it's literally around the corner from the slums.

Glasnow's shoulder injury, plus continued lack of command, make me think this is who he is.
Dan Szymborski
12:25
The shoulder mostly.

I have Billy McKinney in a dynasty league. Does this trade help me?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
Not really. There are reasons to be very worried about him
Sam
12:25
How does ZiPS account for a guy like Jameson Taillon? No MLB track record, missed two full seasons then comes back? Is his projection mostly based on 2013 data?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
Awkwardly

What is the latest on who the Cubs are offering for Chapman? Torres headlining, but also Warren and Candelario? I get it's not a great deal for a rental, but if they can't get Miller, what other dominant reliever could they get, and really, would they be any cheaper in today's trade deadline market?

When a mailman gives you a letter, basic physics means you're also giving him the absence of a letter.

Is it possible that Chris Sale is the dumbest player in the MLB?
Dan Szymborski
12:26
No
He's definitely the player with the best metabolism.

I happen to enjoy your non-sequiturs so.....how about that aroldis chapman?
Dan Szymborski

I went to the doctor and he told me I was fat. I said "doctor, doctor, how about a second opinion" and he said "you're at risk of contracting adult-onset diabetes if you don't maintain a healthy weight too." Doctors don't get the old standards.

Can you name the 2B with a higher WRC+ than Altuve? Hint: his ISO is 70 points higher and I have no idea why. Maybe you could explain ISO as well.
Dan Szymborski
12:29
Is there one? I don't have it open, but that doesn't sound right
Josh
12:29
Will Justin Upton's end of season numbers be typical J-Up numbers, or is he actually worse?
Dan Szymborski
12:30
He's too far off Justin Upton numbers to end up with Justin Upton numbers becaue he'd need two months of way better than Justin Upton numbers to make Justin Upton numbers

If you're the Astros, do you keep Bregman and make the pieces fit? Or dangle him for Archer or Sale? Feel like he'd have to be the best prospect available to either team at the moment
Dan Szymborski
12:30
I keep Bregman unless trades involve "Bregman" rather than "packages including Bregman"

I was expecting more of a Family Guy "non-sequitur mode" so now I'm disappoint.
