I would love an outfield of Melvin Upton, Giancarlo Stanton and Metta World Peace.

So i see David Robertson and Zach Duke's name being mentioned around; can the white sox really move them? (please say yes)
Dan Szymborski
12:38
They can. The question is the willingness.
Rick C

Should the Braves lessen their demand and trade Teheran?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
Yes

Will the 2010-2014 Giants be remembered as a dynasty a few decades from now? Winning three world series is five years is quite the feat, but they never seemed particularly imposing or clearly the best team in baseball at any point in that stretch, which seems to be a "dynasty" prerequisite. Thoughts?
Dan Szymborski
12:39
There's a lot of parity - very few teams are the best team in baseball for any significant stretch

Can't wait to bid $60 on Chapman in my league just to puss everyone off. (I'm losing horribly)

Me and Terence Trent D'Arby went to a Phillies game and I got these nachos with ice cream on them and I tried to tell the vendor that I wanted nacho cheese and he said that nacho cheese was illegal now. Then me and Rick Schu went to get cheesesteaks but for some reason we got them at Best Buy.

Thoughts on O's rotation (and the AL East race in general) moving forward, given addition of Bundy and likely departure of Jimenez?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
The O's rotation is going to remain a weakness no matter what happens.

Yanks would get best return for Miller: a) before this year's deadline; b) during the off-season; c) before next year's deadline ?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
Now.

Can you expand upon your answer to the Glasnow question? Are you saying that his shoulder was mostly the reason he had a horrible start? or that His shoulder is going to doom him to suck forever? Wasn't sure what you meant.
Dan Szymborski
12:40
The shoulder is the source of my worry.
Jeb

Am I the only one that wishes there were more players with personalities like Sale? Pure comedy gold. Or is this against the unspoken rules?
Dan Szymborski
12:40
I would love more characters

Is there legitimate skill behind Bumgarner's massive FIP-ERA gap, or is it just luck?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
His career difference isn't that big
Reginald Denton III
12:41
Do you think Sale will actually be traded? I don't.
Dan Szymborski
12:41
I do not
Jeb
12:41
Are there any new concerns with McKinney since the beginning of the season?
Dan Szymborski
12:41
Mostly that he just hasn't been good.

Looking to take a flyer on a rookie. Do you see Dahl or Margot providing more value in the near-term? Dahl is up but Margot is rumored to be soon. 5 cat + walks. Thanks Dan
Dan Szymborski
12:41
Dahl. I love Margot, but fantasy ain't park-neutral
Tom
12:41
Oooh, funny one-liners. So you think Chapman can throw hard or what?

The Royals signed Kevin Correia to a 2-year, $16 million contract. Dayton Moore talks a lot about him being the king of the rotation because they're going on this spree in which they give players Royal titles instead of baseball-soundy titles because. The Royals also signed fMickey Tettleton and I had to make tweets bashing the Tettleton signing which made me super sad because Tettleton was one of my favorite players. I also gave Josh Nelson a flash drive with all the Squeeze songs on there
Tom

To follow-up on the J-Up question - do you think Justin Upton puts up Justin Upton numbers for the rest of the season?
Dan Szymborski
12:43
A little lower. Our expectations have to change. Tempora mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis

How does your multii-year ZIPS deal with hitters (or pitchers) changing leagues? Does it assume there is some sort of adjustment period or is it basically a constant offset from the projections regardless of whether it
Dan Szymborski
12:43
Never found any.
The difference between the leagues is just about nothing these days.

I'm a moron and considered a SQL expert.

SQL is easy at first, then you start to actually use it and it becomes infinitely more complex. Slow your roll brah

What's wrong with Core-Dick? Still adjusting to TB or we should really call him Coors-y Dickerson?
Dan Szymborski
12:44
He was overrated.
Oliver

has Sale changed his sond to Gods Gonna Cut you down by Johnny Cash yet?
