When does Bregman story drop?
Dan Szymborski
2:25
Wait, what happen?
Alec Asher Wojciechowski
2:25
Chances a team that sold at the deadline makes the playoffs?
Dan Szymborski
2:25
Very low.  The Twins weren't *really* sellers, they sold a guy they had just bought.
2:26
Detroit and Oakland only real AL sellers and they're not making the playoffs
And no obvious NL candidates
My name is Judge...
2:27
nice job twitter threading yesterday about sbnation.  i love it when you join josh nelson on the southside podcast
Dan Szymborski
2:27
We always have fun
Murse Wigwam

Have The Rays played themselves out of contention, maybe not mathematically, but in a "these guys look like Gregor Clegane's sweaty underwear"  sense of the word?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
The offense has been horrifiterribad.
Oh wait, Texas counts for the selling question
2:29
What are they ate?  5% or so?
But on the Rays here's the thing.  After the four good AL teams, every team sucks to some degree.
(in the AL)

With prospect lists being updated now, which org has the best minor league system?
Dan Szymborski
2:29
White Sox

Thought experiment: Keep seeing writers say "For anyone as big as Judge...[blank] is going to be especially difficult." If we were scaling the game to be more Aaron Judge friendly, what would be the correct adjustment? Greater distance from mound to home? Bigger baseballs?
Dan Szymborski
2:30
Bigger baseballs he might kill someone
Oddball Herrera
2:30
Are we close to setting some sort of record for WAR lost to injuries, with so many premier players out for long stretches (Trout, Kershaw, Harper, Correa, Price, Strasburg, Turner, etc)
Dan Szymborski
2:30
Would be interesting but I don't know
Da Bum
2:30
If Stanton gets 62 its an historic season as its the most HRs not aided by anabolic steroids.
Dan Szymborski
2:30
And?
2:31
Now, let's say I pretend to care.
2:32
Even if we ssay Bonds and McGwire are disqualified on the assumption of steroids, the case for Sosa is essentially an unnamed source reporting on ao result two years later and a lot of yelling OMG STERIODS SOSA

Last week Eno said you guys had Bregman analysis story dropping this week.
Dan Szymborski
2:33
I keep telling you guys that I don't know FanGraphs related news!
Lee
2:33
Does Harper's latest injury affect his future contract?
Dan Szymborski
2:33
As of now, it's fart-in-a-tornado level
Drew
2:33
Can you explain Nate McClouth's 2008?
Dan Szymborski
2:34
It's the season that McLouth participated in that was between January 1st and December 31st, 2008, under the Gregorian calendar.
Dave
2:35
What should the reds do with their Suarez/Senzel problem? Move Suarez to short? Move Senzel to 2nd?
Dan Szymborski
2:35
I think they're still seeing how it sorts out.  Peraza's abilities and Herrera's shoulder are still very big obstacles
Jim
2:35
You think Buehler is in the discussion for top overall prospect? When will the Dodgers catch a break?
Dan Szymborski
2:36
I know, poor guys!
CamdenWarehouse

What are your thoughts on Carson's fatherhood?
or is that too mean?
Dan Szymborski
2:36
I don't believe in holding offspring responsible for the sins of the father!
Da Bum

Does Jeter sell Stanton or do you think he concentrate on compiling big star power a la his Yankee teams?
