No. Losing 120 is really hard.

If a player with say 3 years of team control left gets released and then signed by another team to a one year contract, does the new team still have three years of control?
Dave Cameron
1:04
If the player is 3 years shy of the necessary 6 years of service time, then yes. If they had 3 years left on a deal they signed but already have 6 years of FA, then no.
So, for instance, if the Rangers released Shin-Soo Choo, whoever signed him would just get him for one year.
1:05
But if the Rangers cut Jurickson Profar, you'd get the three years.

whoa whoa whoa... Kiermaier > Hamilton
Dave Cameron
1:06
Overall? Sure. Defensively? Not sold. I think if you put Hamilton on a team that aggressively positioned as often as TB, he'd rate even better by UZR/DRS.

Plus speed forecasts better to CF. Do you see Trea Turner returning to CF, Eaton to RF, and Harper to LF or FA longterm?
Dave Cameron
1:06
That's how i'd do it, but that's not how WAS is going to do it.

Re: VV, why are people so quick to turn pitchers into relievers. It took Randy Johnson a few years to turn into Randy fricken Johnson.
Dave Cameron
1:06
Velasquez's issues are health related, with RJ didn't have.
Jim Lonborg
1:06
You're exaggerating about Hamilton, right? You'd take him over Kiermaier, Bradley, and Pillar?
Dave Cameron
1:07
Defensively? Hamilton is insanely great.
Bases on Balks

Looking at their stats, the Giants bullpen really wasn't terrible. They were pretty middle-of-the road at almost everything. So why did they blow so many saves and seem like such a dumpster fire?
Dave Cameron
1:08
They were crazy unclutch.
They were fine in blowouts, terrible in close games.

Has the massive snow started in Bend yet? What do you suppose the logic is in not allowing international money to be traded until after july 2? why can teams still not trade draft picks, do you suppose?
Dave Cameron
1:08
Yeah, we're getting dumped on. Probably going to get a foot down here.
1:09
In terms of the bonus money, teams can't officially sign anyone until July 2, so they don't need money until then.

Dave - What teams and topics get the most clicks at Fangraphs?
Dave Cameron
1:10
The teams you'd expect, plus the Blue Jays. Blue Jays fans will click on anything. It was hilarious to watch the traffic when the Drew Storen-Joaquin Benoit trade went down. Seattle fans were like "eh, who cares", but Benoit's player page instantly became our most viewed page.
Hi Erix

Syndergaard hasn't had Tommy John surgery.
Dave Cameron
1:10
Hmm. My mistake, then. I thought he had it in the minors.
Vince Clortho

How do you know every fanbase's dumb nicknames for their players? It's a lot to keep straight and very impressive? Related: Who in the great goddam is VV?
Dave Cameron
1:11
Vincent Velasquez.
There aren't many VV guys in the majors.
Chaps

re McCutchen to Astros: You don't think that Aoki/Beltran in LF, Springer in CF, and Reddick in RF is enough?
Dave Cameron
1:12
Beltran should DH.
Dooduh
1:12
There was no draft comp for Chapman.
Dave Cameron
1:12
Well I'm just getting all kinds of factual things wrong today.
I blame the kid.

Quintana for Bregman. Who says no?
Dave Cameron

Houston
mike sixel

Not sure I agree on the international money, you would want budgets and plans before July 2....Headed to Bend next week, hoping the passes are all nice and clear....
Dave Cameron
1:13
Teams will line up the trades just like the line up the signings.
1:14
They won't be official, but they'll be agreed to.
Alright, that will do it for me today.
We'll do the last chat of 2016 next Wednesday.
I'll try to get fewer things wrong then.
