No.
I can't think of any player ever who has gotten beneficial results from being yo-yoed

So, we know that scoring in every inning of a game is pretty rare - even rarer than a perfect game, as it's been shown. Given the ROS projections for the Brewers in 8/11's lineup against ATL (basically, minus Braun in LF, Gennett hitting third, and PIna at C), just how much more unlikely was MIL's accomplisment than standard issue unlikeliness?

I have no idea, you can't ask me to model things I've never thought about on the fly in 45 seconds in a chat!

Heard over the weekend, Cardinals players have been hit 60+ times this year, to hitting only 39. Why are we still calling the Cardinals head hunters?

Labels are hard to shed.

Like everyone thinks I'm a stereotypical beer-bellied sarcastic internet nerd...but...errr...bad example.

Braun for Puig, no cash offsets in either direction. Assume both pass through waivers. Who hangs up?
Dan Szymborski
12:13
Brewers I think.

Hello Dan! Hope you enjoyed your weekend. No question (yet)
Dan Szymborski
12:13
I did.

Who is the real Pomeranz? I dont like what im seeing!!!!

Hard to tell.

The last NL Wildcard spot feels like a race to the bottom. MIA, NYM, STL, PIT all have serious problems, but all could win it. Who do you think will emerge from this scrum?
Dan Szymborski
12:14
I think Cards pull it off in the end. I think they're still funamentally the soundest teams.

With HOU having DFA'd Gomez - where will MIL's trade of him + Fiers for the four guys they got ultimately rank in terms of one sided trade heists when all is said and done?
Dan Szymborski
12:15
Certainly not looking great.

Thanks for all the great stuff! You guys are the best. Here in Israel tons of people read fangraphs regularly.
Dan Szymborski
12:16
No thanks to me.

If they miss the playoffs, would you consider the Mets and Astros to be the biggest regular-season disappointments this year?
Dan Szymborski
12:16
I think Astros more so.

Can you lead a FanGraphs outing to OPACY?
Dan Szymborski
12:16
My organizational skills are...interesting.

Who will be better over the next 3 seasons: Bauer or Gausman? Both former top picks who haven't lived up to the billing yet, but both have shown some serious flashes as well.
Dan Szymborski
12:17
I'm not sure I can say - both can be frustrating in their own way
Julio Pepper
12:17
What's going on with Sandy Leon? Would you take the over on the ZIPs projections? He's been hitting the shit out of the ball.
Dan Szymborski
12:17
I'm not buying it yet considering he wasn't even hitting AAA pitchers this year
12:18
See Travis Shaw's Razor.

Do you think the Astros find every day ABs for Begman once Gurriel is ready?
Dan Szymborski
12:18
They'll squeeze 'em out.

How sustainable is Aaron Judges 857 iSO?
Dan Szymborski
12:18
Totally, of course.

How/when does ZiPs make updates to players? Specifically, it has Jake Lamb as hitting 9 HRs and ROS for 5. Is it offseason and how does it factor that? Just curious about the behind-the-scenes nuts and bolts that you can offer, thanks!
Dan Szymborski
12:19
Daily, though in-season model much more basic
Bork

Caleb Joseph will potentially break the record for most AB without an RBI. Only 10 more needed!
Matt

Hi Dan. I missed you.

I was here last week and I'm omnipresent on twitter

Crap start for Orlando Arcia so far. Should MIL keep him up and let him learn MLB pitching on the fly, or could he use some further development time in the minors? FWIW, his defense looks good by the eye test, but FG's DEF measure doesn't agree - is this just SSS smoke?
Dan Szymborski
12:19
Let him take his lumps. A major leaguer has to do that.

Is Mookie Betts an MVP candidate officially?
