I doubt it, but it could happen.

Bregman and Reed have BABIPs of .182 and .171, respectively. These guys will be fine, right?
Dan Szymborski
12:48
Yes. It's still April even if it's july

Where do you set the odds that A-Rod attempts a comeback next year to reach 700?
Dan Szymborski
12:48
20/1

Dan, bit of a stale question but you were busy last week. Did the 'mystery team' talk during the trade deadline seems as nauseating to you as me? Like, do actual people fall for that stuff?
Dan Szymborski
12:48
I like the rumor stuff - keeps Twitter popping

If Arod were to not take the coaching assignment and sign with another team how does that work if he hits the milestones that were written into his Yankee's deal?
Dan Szymborski
12:48
I do not know. Since those aren't standard clauses, it depends on the wording.
Anthony
12:48
Do you like Stroman or Jon Gray moving forward? Both are so unpredictable from week to week
Dan Szymborski
12:49
I like both, Gray a little more in real life, a little worse in fantasy
Avi

Is your nickname Scrabble too, Dan?

Can you think of a legitimate reason why Aaron Hicks is still playing baseball in NY?
Dan Szymborski
12:49
They keep paying him, so he figures he might as well keep showing up

Right now it feels like the Braves are really banking on Swanson and Albies to anchor a competitively line-up in 2018. How much trouble are they in if one or both of them bust?
Dan Szymborski
12:49
Quite a bit, but I really like obth of 'em

This is the most excited I've been about being a Yankee fan in at least 5 years... After I typed that I'm realizing how snobby that sounds. Sorry.
Erik

Would you put the Yankees as a top 5 World Series favorite in 2019, or is it far too early to say that? Are there any other currently rebuilding teams who you'd confidently put as a playoff favorite 3 years down the road?
Dan Szymborski
12:50
I probably would. Money, a roster that isn't complete junk, and a terrific farm system are a good long-term comb
Lukas
12:50
Will Mike Trout's career with the Angels be completely wasted by the rest of the team being mediocre?
Dan Szymborski
12:50
His career should be a long time

Apparently Kershaw started baseball activity again, do you think he will be back and dealing in September
Dan Szymborski
12:50
I think so
White Elephant
12:50
Who's this Kyle Hendricks guy think he is anyway?
Ray
12:50
Safe to say Seager will win NL ROY but Naquin or Fulmer for AL?
Dan Szymborski
12:50
I think Fulmer gets it
Murdoc

Baseball will be back at the Olympics in 2020. How high is your interest level in Olympic baseball?
Dan Szymborski
12:50
Not very.
Bill

I'm sad Alex Rodriguez is ending his career like this. He's one of the three best players I've ever seen, one of the 10-15 best players ever. As good as he is I still think people underrate him, or don't appreciate his Greatness because of personal stuff.
Dan Szymborski
12:51
Lots of greats dont' go out on their own terms. He has to wonder if walking away last winter would have been best
Steve
12:51
Who's the AL Cy Young favorite at this point?
Dan Szymborski
12:52
I think right now Hamels.
Da Bum

In terms of the past decade, where does this year's Cubs team rank in overall talent? Obviously, may not win it all this season because it's baseball but overall talent level isn't affected by that.
Dan Szymborski
12:52
ZiPS had them 2nd of the last 7 years, behind the 2011 Yankees
WannabeBork
12:52
Sup bro?
Dan Szymborski
12:52
Maybe some cereal - my stomach's kinda sour today
Matt
12:52
Guerra is hurt I thought
Dan Szymborski

What timeframe are we talking about?
