Oh, is randomness what you want? Fine. I'll simply post dreams I had then, which are way more random.

Wow you're a bitch. Who the fuck cares if you're fat ass is on twitter all day
Dan Szymborski
12:31
An interesting case. But how do you take into account risk skewness?

Would Moncada be an upgrade for the Red Sox if he was called up right now? The speed alone is tempting for the playoffs
Dan Szymborski
12:32
I actually think he'd be a fun bench guy in the playoffs.

I'm learning SQL at work and it seems surprisingly easy. Am I just a quick learner or is everyone else just overstating how complicated it is?

Any chance Dahl becomes the bigger factor, Coors notwithstanding , than Bregman?
Dan Szymborski
12:33
That's a stretch. Bregman is bad ass.

What kind of Chinese food? Sczeshwan (sp) or spicy basil chicken?
Dan Szymborski
12:34
Hole in the wall down the street.

Does Story hit 40 HRs this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:34
I say no, but he'll be shcokingly close

Trade Tanaka and Rendon for Kershaw in a redraft? Rendon is being rotated in a Util spot for me with Valencia/Conforto right now.
Dan Szymborski
12:35
I would

Is there really no team in baseball that wants to pay half of Rusney Castillo's salary?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
You don't!
Ben Brode
12:35
Did you see the finale of seatstory last night? How crazy was that match. We need more crazy decks!
Dan Szymborski
12:35
YOU NOT REAL BEN BRODE

If the yankees are bad for a couple of years, does that hurt their chances in the free agent market? Or is free agency purely about money, which the yankees certainly have no shortage of?
Dan Szymborski
12:35
Money talks

Does Tyler Wade have an MLB future?
Dan Szymborski
12:36
Utility guy mainly. It's too easy to overrate a guy that gets most of his minor league value from walks

Best Twitter follows for MLB trade deadline information?
Dan Szymborski
12:36
Ken Rosenthai of course.
Jason

Does the reported Chapman deal mean he (and every other RP that can actually retire a batter) is destined to make truly stupid money as a FA this winter?

-----------------
I was playing golf with Ezra Pound and he started getting very angry that we didn't stop for lunch after the 9th hole and I insistently told him that it was an 8:00 tee time and it would make more sense to get lunch after we finished but he threw a giant temper tantrum so we went to the clubhouse for sandwiches and they had a sandwich named after David Wiers and David Wiers was in the clubhouse too but he didn't want to order his sandwich because it had horseradish on it and I asked why a sandwich named after him had stuff on it he didn't like and he didn't say anything because he got in a fistfight with Ezra. I didn't see who won because I went back onto the course because I left my car keys next to one of the ball washers.

What are the plans for ZiPS after this season? Are you appointing a caretaker? [raises hand]
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Am I dying? Is this how my doctor tells me, through a post in my FanGraphs chat?
Sean
12:37
Say like you had someone that was 27 and very athletic, but never played baseball before. If they want to maximize their chances of being an MLB player, should they learn to hit or pitch?
Dan Szymborski
12:37
Pitch
Man

Should the Orioles consider trading Tillman for Bregman+
Dan Szymborski
12:38
Yeah, in the same vein as I would consider selling ZiPS for $100 million.
PLUS? How greedy are we?
