I don't think there's any official licensing bureau
It's tough because Trout is Trout and Altuve's gone insane
The Cincinnati Kid

Is pre-insane (i.e. current) level Charlie Blackmon a good comp for David Dahl next year? 17 HRs/20 SBs?
Dan Szymborski
12:21
I'd hope his ceiling was higher than 2014/2015 Blackmon
Matt

Aaron Judge is on pace to hit 47 HRs this season. This is plausible, right?
Dan Szymborski
12:22
On the high side of course. I do th ink he's a real hitter.
The Cincinnati Kid
12:23
Why the Trumbo power outage? Do you see anything that stands out besides balls not going over the fence?
Dan Szymborski
12:23
He's still hitting HRs actually - it's the BA that's dropped off.
Outta my way, Gyorkass
12:23
Is an August trade for an older, highly paid hitter a possibility for MIA, or are they relegated to picking up someone like A-Rod to fill the hole left by Stanton's injury?
Dan Szymborski
12:23
I think they have to go for scraps

Odd that the Tigers let Fulmer go 9 yesterday with such a big lead and a possible innings limit. Is there bullpen really that bad? hah. How do you think teams should handle young pitchers when they are in playoff hunt?
Dan Szymborski
12:23
It's hard to tell just how strict the Tigers are going to be with the inning count.
He was really coasting there.
12:24
But also, it was super hot and they had that big lead.
I'm torn on whether he should have been pu lled.

Do you think the Braves will move on from Markakis this offseason?
Dan Szymborski
12:24
No
John
12:24
Luis Severino is destined for the bullpen, isn't he? If so, is he good enough to become Dellin's set-up man in the reasonable future?
Dan Szymborski
12:24
I think it's too soon to give up on him as starter
CamdenWarehouse
12:25
I don't recall Kim Ng in the conversation for any of the GM jobs last year. Do you think she'll be a contender for future jobs or has she been passed by?
Dan Szymborski
12:25
It's tricky, it's such a political structure
Paul
12:25
Shouldn't my Orioles try and bring Markakis aboard, it's obvious he cleared waivers. Get Atlanta to kick in cash.
Dan Szymborski
12:25
No.
12:27
Joey Rickard will eventually be back - so the O's are set in the scrappy-white-corner-outfielder-that-deluded-people-think-is-legitimate-starter category.
Jimmy
12:27
Contracts included, because why wouldn't they be, would you rather have Miley or Miranda?
Dan Szymborski
12:27
Miranda long-term, but Miley this year.
JD15
12:27
Do you think Cubs will go after Papelbon? If so can he contribute in the playoffs? Would he even make the playoff roster with Chapman, Rondon, Strop (most likely healthy), Edwards, Grimm and Wood all solid later inning options.
Dan Szymborski
12:27
No

will Jose Quintana ever get 10 wins in a season?
Dan Szymborski
12:27
He won't be a White Sock forever.
Eric
12:27
Do you think Matt Wisler and Aaron Blair can figure it out and atleast be solid backend starters?
Dan Szymborski
12:27
I remain slightly otpimsitic
Zonk

Who is your early pick for NL MVP? Bryant? Daniel Murphy?
Dan Szymborski
12:27
Bryant

12:27
You would think a team that supposedly ruined Joba chamberlain by yo-yoing would be more cautious about yanking around pitching prospects
Dan Szymborski
12:27
You'd think a lot of things in this life.
Big Joe Monferrant
12:27
Could the Reds trade Votto this off season?
Dan Szymborski
12:27
I think they could.
Need An Arm?
12:28
If the Dodgers do pick up an August arm, who's a semi-likely candidate?
Dan Szymborski
12:28
It's a bit tricky as there's no comprehensive list of who passed through waivers
