Maybe he moves to 1B when Gonzalez is done.

Is Schwarber the ultimate three true outcomes guy?
Dave Cameron
12:49
No, that's Gallo.

Any thoughts on the ESPN layoffs? Tough day for them.
Dave Cameron
12:50
Never enjoy see people losing their jobs. Always tough.

Chances #Nats get a mega deal done for Harper? Thanks

Just curious, what makes you say Gausman isn't great? The stuff seems like it's there, high velo fastball and a great split-change per the splitter/cutter article yesterday. Command issues? Consistency?
Dave Cameron
12:51
Average-ish K%, lousy contact manager, iffy command.
He's not bad. He's just not great.
Monsignor Martinez

Do you think Aaron Judge's talent at the plate is more like a RH Joc Pederson or Giancarlo Stanton?
Dave Cameron
12:52
Maybe between them?

Is the general rule for a fake Mike Trout trade "if you think you've got something that works, double it"? Can't imagine a realistic package for him. What do you think one looks like?
Dave Cameron
12:52
General rule: you can't do it with minor leaguers.
A Trout trade has to be based around another MLB All-Star.
12:53
Plus a bunch of other stuff.

Re: Mike Trout Trade. I truly think you are 100% wrong on that. While I know the Angels would want MLB talent instead of just prospects. But he isn't worth "SO MUCH MORE" and "Wouldn't lend him for a week for that offer". Angels know they aren't going anywhere even with Mike Trout
Dave Cameron
12:53
Okay, let's take me out of it. Poll time.

Nationals' closer by the end of season: Kelley, Glover or New Comer?
Dave Cameron
12:54
New guy.
Julio
12:55
Is there still hope for Jurickson Profar given his age?
Dave Cameron
12:55
Sure. There are guys who figure it out at 30.
But he hasn't shown anything of promise in the last few years.
Eli

How much do you buy Headley and Castro's blistering start? For that matter, since you were more bullish on the Yankees in general, has anything about your opinion changed with their strong start?
Dave Cameron
12:56
They won't keep this up, but neither will Bird, and Sanchez will come back. I think NYY's offense is solidly above average, the defense is fine, and the pitching was underrated.
12:57
Okay, I think we can say we have a representative sample now. Sorry, El Duderino; you're down 89/11.
And I might drug test the 11%.

Coghlan play was awesome. Now that that's out of the way - that was an incredibly dangerous play, and the outcome of Coghlan not being injured had to be in the 95th percentile, no?
Dave Cameron
12:57
Yeah, crazy high risk. It was fun to watch but that's because I'm not Chris Coghlan's mom.
12:58
I wouldn't advise that as a regular thing.

White Sox made a mistake holding Quintana or were right to wait it out?
Dave Cameron
12:58
Mistake.
Josh

Do projections take schedule into consideration? For example, since STL plays the Reds and Brewers 38 times, does that increase their projected record beyond the RS and RA numbers as opposed to if they were in a tougher division?
Dave Cameron
12:59
On our Playoff Odds page, yes, schedule is included.

Going to Pitch Talks in KC tomorrow night--should I have questions ready for Passan?
Dave Cameron
1:00
Sure, but make sure you say it as Pass-en, not puh-sawn. He is not a fan of having his last name mispronounced.

I don't know when you start taking submissions, but I would nominate Travis Sawchik's article on ballpark design as an early contender for best of the year. Not traditional analysis per se but strikes me as representing what people love about Fangraphs: an interesting take on a baseball subject I don't think too much about.
Dave Cameron
1:00
Yeah, that piece was great.
Alex

Am I crazy for actually liking the Rays' offense and thinking it could be good enough to hang around in the AL East?
