Alonso has been awful for a while, what gives?
Dan Szymborski
2:37
Guys have bad months, even afte rthey break out.  It's not something I'm terribly worreid about yet.  He was never really going to be a 160 OPS+ guy consistently
The Dude

What reasons are out there to bring up Acuna to the pros right now? He's not on the 40 and could be a business argument to keep him down for control.
Dan Szymborski

Atlanta's attempts to spin the fanbase into the idea they're closer to competing than they are

Can we place ban use of the article "an" before historic by all non-Brits?  Where we actually pronounce our h's," it's "a historic."  People getting it wrong are failing at pretending to be fancy.  Help me, Szym.  You're our only hope.
Dan Szymborski
2:41
My h in historic is very weak
Oops, didn't answer last question
Verlander or Greinke

Does Zips have a HOF projector? If not, that would be a cool feature and I would like to read things based on it.
Dan Szymborski
2:41
Not in ZiPS, but I do have one.
ECinDC
2:41
What would it take for you to sell Zips to a team?
Dan Szymborski
2:41
More than it would be worth to the buyer.
Corky McCork
2:41
Good point, there is no clear evidence that Sosa was willing to cheat
Dan Szymborski
2:42
So, shall we assume every corked bat user after 1960 was a steroid user?
Nelson Cruz

Can I be like David Ortiz and keep going for another couple of years?

Sure
My name is Judge...

does the prospect of 3/4 teams tied for the second wild card spot in the al excite you?
Dan Szymborski

Yeah, but better that we get like  7 or anything.  Let the chaos reign.

What stops Jordan Luplow from fooling ZiPS into thinking he's one of the best prospects in baseball when most scouts project 4th OF type?  His wRC+ at all levels is impressive.
Dan Szymborski
2:45
He's gotten a pretty good boost this year.
Though it hasn't gone crayz
Mike
2:46
Has didi reached the point where you have him as a top 5 ss with his very good defense and mix of solid power and hit tool? if not where would you rank him?
Dan Szymborski
2:46
He's probably somewhere around 5th-8th or so.  It's a brutal fight.
Sterling Mallory Chris Archer
