If the season ended today, he should be a unanimous pick.

So if you think Gray will likely be traded, could we see a Gray–Hill package? Does any contender have a combination of that deep need for starting pitching as well as the chips to make such an exchange?
Dave Cameron
12:46
They'd be better off splitting them up.

You're spot on with Valencia fitting the Mets but they won't want to give up Nimmo now that he's turned the corner. He was this regime's first 1st rd draft pick in 2011. And they are thin in OFers in the system. Better fit is either Wilmer Flores or Dilson Herrera plus an arm.
Dave Cameron
12:47
There's no real reason to think Nimmo's "turned the corner".

I was moving during for the Fangraphs Staten Island meet up. Please lie to me and tell me it was terrible.
Dave Cameron
12:47
It was the worst.

What do you think of Atlanta's top 5-6 draft picks?
Dave Cameron
12:48
I generally think building around arms is a poor strategy.
Bork

Wow players vote to determine who gets no share? Would hate to get on the bad side of some of the clubhouse leader type players.
Dave Cameron
12:49
I'm fairly certain that all the guys who play regularly in the postseason get full shares. The half-shares go to guys who bounced up and down through the regular season and maybe didn't play in October. I'm not 100% certain that I have it right, but I think that's how it works, anyway.
Daniel

Harper is absolutely going to hit free agency, right?
Dave Cameron
12:49
Right.
Tom

Talk about the Marlins!
Dave Cameron
12:50
Given the Stanton and Chen performances this year, Loria might not ever spend money again.
Keith

Does Teheran have more value than Vizcaino?
Dave Cameron
12:50
Yes.
hscer
12:50
are the Braves in a position to have qualms about trading Vizcaino within the division
Dave Cameron
12:51
That matters less with relievers. The shelf life of RPs is so short that those guys won't haunt you for a decade.

What's wrong with Jake McGee this year? His K's overnight cut in half.
Dave Cameron
12:51
Seems pretty likely that his arm is shot.
Danny boy
12:52
Is Correa really better than Seager longterm? Seager has even been a better fielder by most metrics
Dave Cameron
12:53
They both look great. We don't know enough to say for sure which one is likely going to be able to stay at SS long-term right now.

is it time for us to admit that michael pineda is the best pitcher in new york
Dave Cameron
12:53
Did the Mets relocate out of town?
Tacoma Aroma
12:54
Will there be a single metric that encompasses the most important information from statcast data?
Dave Cameron
12:55
Eventually, yeah.
Guest

If the Braves ate all of the Markakis contract how would it taste?
Dave Cameron
12:55
Bitter
Tacoma Aroma

What will be the Cubs' biggest vulnerability in a playoff series?
Dave Cameron
12:56
Right now, it's the middle relief. That's why Andrew Miller is perfect for them.
Bork
12:56
Any ideas how the QO could change? There needs to be some kind of solution. The last system (A. B.) was terrible and the QO system is hated by the union.
Dave Cameron
12:57
The players want it to just go away entirely. If they make enough other concessions, I think that could happen. If they end up keeping the system in some form, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a multi-year offer, instead of a one year.
Micah
12:57
Is the success Kyle Hendricks is having sustainable even without a portfolio of wipeout stuff?
Dave Cameron
12:58
His stuff is underrated because he doesn't throw hard. The change-up is excellent, one of the very best in baseball.
Ray
12:59
What is the likelihood that the Dodgers make Kenley Jansen available before 7/31?
Dave Cameron
12:59
0%
Sam

Is there a case for Kershaw over Trout as greatest current player?
Dave Cameron
1:01
You could make a case that Kershaw is as valuable on the field right now. But Trout's been at this level for 4-5 years, so track record still pushes things towards Trout. But this version of Kershaw, like what he's doing now, is more valuable than even peak Trout.

Where would you put the odds that the Dodgers end the season with the Cy Young, MVP and Rookie of the Year? Better than 50%?
