Why are people so passionate about someone like Markakis? Who cares? Care more about Mike Trout, Kris Bryant, etc.
Dan Szymborski
1:06
I don't get why I get a dozen Markakis questions a week.
1:07
I keep thinking if I answer one, that'll be the end of it, but Markakis Question Posers are apparently reproducing very quickly.

Are the BBWAA meetings over by 7 pm? It gives the members an hour to watch a game of their choice before bedtime.

Dan - I ran downstairs and got you your damn cheesesteak. Overnight was expensive, so I went with USPS 5-7 business day option.

Is the reason you like JBJ over Joc in CF due to
1) JBJ's defense
2) JBJ's bat
3) Joc's bat
4) Nick Markakis
Dan Szymborski
1:07
I think JBJ's just noather step up. I like Joc a lot
OK, let's get this Lightning Round going.

You know the rules, I must answer any off-topic question with the noted exceptions until I catch up or get annoyed or you guys sufficiently tick me off.
and GO

Played No Man's Sky yet? What do you think?
Dan Szymborski
1:08
I have not. Given the launch issues, I'm waiting to see how they iron out.
I was already growing ambivalent about the gameplay. No multiplayer, no real building, etc.
1:09
a bad launch has a way of turning off a game forever - I don't think I've tried Sim City since the first week
certainly won't again, see Cities Skylines

There's so much evil in this world

What's the proper etiquette when an Uber driver claims he's lost? Doesn't the APP show them where to go?
Dan Szymborski
1:09
I'm not sure, haven't run into it.
1:10
Though did get into a hilarious situation in which I got in the wrong uber car and we got like 5 miles before realizing it
It looked like the car I was waiting for and he was pickingup a Dan too

Freeman will be a Free Agent in 2022. And you said Braves will return to playoffs in 2019, but that Freeman won't be around for that. Freeman will be 29 years old in 2019.
Dan Szymborski
1:10
Maybe 2019.
1:11
And he'll likely be a worse player than he is now and there will be another two years of wasted value in the interim
Big Joe Monferrant

Do you think they will trade Votto? Or that they should trade Votto?
Dan Szymborski
1:11
The question was whether they could. I think they could.

Are you a fan of Aaron Sorkin?
Dan Szymborski
1:11
No, I don't his dialogue style. It's too over-cute, if that makes sense.
Matt

If you go to Jersey, is it just called "Mike's"?
Dan Szymborski

I'm sure they knife you for goign to a chain

What should I do now that my favorite bartender at my favorite bar has left? Go to a new bar or just try to go find her and ask her out?
Dan Szymborski
1:12
Are you sure the connection wasn't her giving you alcohol?
