Those PAs came from 21-23. Almost everyone hits better from 24 on than they do at those ages.

I know they are beating up on mediocrity and are all injured, but, do you see the Mariners as having any decent shot at the WC?
Dave Cameron
12:52
The AL is the land of mediocrity, so sure, simply because it's not clear what non-division winners are going to run away with anything.
Trent

If the Reds can't trade Cozart because no one needs a SS, should they try to extend him or just make a QO?
Dave Cameron
12:53
There are teams that need an SS. If they keep him, they've screwed up, most likely.
Mark

Assuming you can't just say "Fire Matheny" as it seems he's been given immunity by ownership, how would you go about revamping/blowing up the Cardinals? As a Redbird fan, I'm read for a good blowing up as I'm resigned to Matheny sticking around.
Dave Cameron
12:54
I'm not so sure it's that easy to blow this roster up. Yadi isn't going anywhere, Wainwright is untradeable, you're not moving Fowler a few months into a five year deal, you just extended Martinez...
Who do you trade? Gyorko, I guess? Lynn? You're still going to have an older team.
spencer

Who gets called first - Brinson, Rosario, Torres, Devers - and when you thinking they'll get the call?
Dave Cameron
12:56
Rosario is probably the first of that group to come up.
Bob
12:56
I know he's been terrible, but could the Cardinals get anything for Jhonny Peralta?
Dave Cameron
12:56
Not really.
connor

Why don't the phillies promote nick williams? they got to see whether he is able to handle the ml pitching. they got nothing to lose
Dave Cameron
12:57
Rhys Hoskins is the guy they should be promoting.
12:58
Tommy Joseph is a platoon guy. Hoskins could be really good.
Chaco Chicken
12:59
Am I imagining things or are walks way up this season?
Dave Cameron
12:59
8.7%, up from 8.2% last year, and 7.7% the year before that.
Tor

Who is closer to being a legitimate contender: Twins or Brewers?
Dave Cameron
12:59
Brewers
Mr. Bob Dobalina

Choose one: Carlos Beltran goes into the Hall of Fame as a (A) Royal (B) Met (C) Blank cap (D) visitor with a paid ticket.

Scott

At this time next week, Amed Rosario will be in the majors- true or false?
Dave Cameron
1:00
True. Super Two deadline is passing, so we'll see a rash of promotions soon.
Al
1:01
Would there be some logic to Washington making a big splash at the trade deadline? Darvish?
Dave Cameron
1:01
Would guess they'll get a closer and maybe an outfielder.
Blah
1:01
The Dodgers are just using the 10 day DL to have a 7 man rotation aren't they?
Dave Cameron
1:01
Yup.
Go Rays
1:02
Odorizzi for Schwarber, does this frame of a trade get done?
Dave Cameron
1:02
Don't think Odorizzi is good enough for Cubs to consider that.
toki
1:02
Man the NL East looks like a steaming pile behind the Nationals. Are they for real or just a good team in a junk division?
Dave Cameron
1:02
Those things aren't mutually exclusive.
Cedric
1:03
What's a realistic timetable for the White Sox? Do you think they plan to contend in 2020?
Dave Cameron
1:03
Yeah, that's probably the hope. Maybe 2019 if things go right.
Joe
1:05
Whats wrong with Kyle Hendricks....was last year just a fluke season
Dave Cameron
1:05
Big difference between 86 and 88.
He needs those two ticks back.
Pete
1:05
Re: the Marlins selling, I wonder if Stanton has yet realized that he'll stuck on a crappy team for his entire career, or at least during his prime?
Dave Cameron
1:05
Well he has an opt-out so he's not really stuck.
RMR

Obviously Zack Cozart isn't **this** good. But since the start of 2015, he's been a markedly better player -- 4.6 WAR/600 over 950 PA, including sustaining his defensive excellence. What kind of contract is he looking at heading in to FA as a 32-year old? Is 4/60 too high? Too low?
Dave Cameron
1:06
Too high. Don't think teams are going to buy the power spike outside of CIN, and teams are not paying for older players. He's not getting more than Zobrist. I'd say best case is 3/$40M or something.
