Yeah, you can choose "LF" from the splits dropdown, and it will only be PAs at that position.

What would be a better system? No compensation for FA signings/leaving?
Dave Cameron
12:44
I don't think teams need to be compensated for losing FAs, but if they have to keep something in place, I like Jim Callis' idea of multiplying the QO by 3x or 4x to get a total contract value minimum, instead of a one year minimum. So any contract over $50 or $60 million brings back a back, since those are the guys who are obviously valuable, and it doesn't screw over guys wanting to sign for 2/$25M or whatever.

On that Baseruns note, what does it mean for the Cubs 2017 projection that their BR record was around 107 instead of 103? Could the projections yet TBA possibly project 100 wins?
Dave Cameron
12:46
No, because they're not going to allow a .255 BABIP again, or whatever they ended up at.

Should the white sox wait to trade Frazier/Melky until the deadline when the price is higher? One year of Frazier after hitting .220 isn't going to bring back much, but at the deadline it might inflate the price
Dave Cameron
12:47
Except if you trade him now, the acquiring team can price in a comp pick with a QO next winter.
So the price will be higher now.

Would Benintendi, Kopech and Devers be enough to get Sale?
Dave Cameron
12:47
No

Do the Nats do something at 1st besides run Zim and there and cross your fingers?
Dave Cameron
12:48
Yeah, I'd imagine they'll get someone to provide 1B/OF depth.

Is it just me, or is the latest trade of giving up three years of Nuno for one of Ruiz another example of Jerry DiPoto continuing to undervalue his assets?
Dave Cameron
12:49
Vidal Nuno isn't very good.
Kerry

Does Felix's contract now fall into the "albatross" category?
Dave Cameron
12:49
Yeah.

Kevin Pillar+ Stroman for kyle Schwarber?
Dave Cameron
12:49
Why would the Blue Jays do that?
Mark
12:49
Giolito, Lopez, Fedde for Sale, who says no? What about for Archer?
Dave Cameron
12:50
Sox/Rays both say no.

Cubs still heavy favorites going in to next year? Anyone else close?
Dave Cameron
12:50
Dodgers could be within shouting distance if they make a few good moves.
mike

Can you help me better understand why the white sox should blow it up when they do have so many high quality players? To me their division is not that formidible. Why not continue to at least try increase the team's floor through the addition of depth?
Dave Cameron
12:51
Because even with those good players, they're a mid-70s win team. Even if they could find a few more decent role players, the best they're looking at, realistically, is to get to .500ish, and then hope for 10 wins of luck.
That's not a great plan.
Jordan
12:51
Is it just me or has Atlanta fans become incredibly annoying with the trade proposals?
Dave Cameron
12:51
It's not just you.

Archer or Sale would get a bigger return?
Dave Cameron
12:52
Sale
E
12:52
How has Liberty adjusted to the move?
Dave Cameron
12:53
She's doing well. The biggest loss is we haven't found a neighborhood doggy friend for her to play with yet like we had back in NC -- shout out to Mable, we still miss you! -- but there's so much amazing off leash area here that she's getting a lot of time to explore.

Next Miller--Liriano??/
Dave Cameron
12:53
Miller throws strikes.

Lots of discussion previously about whether Cubs should have traded Schwarber for Andrew Miller when still with Yankees. In retrospect, did Cubs do the right thing in passing? Would they have won the World Series without Schwarber? Would it make sense today to trade 5 remaining years of control of Schwarber to Indians for 2 years of Miller?
