White Sox have a top 5 system after all this? Top 3?
Eno Sarris
12:07
I *loved* the Boston return. I'm down on Giolito and Lopez, though. Mediocre spin and movement. Flat velocity and hope.

If you're the Yankees, why sign Chapman? They're a couple years away from being very good. And,if they get there, 1) Chapman will have declined and 2) If Chapman is great, he'll opt out after year 3. The Yankees are assuming a lot of risk for minimal reward.
Eno Sarris
12:07
I dunno, Bird and Sanchez are going to hit the ground running. They could be good as soon as this year.
Erik

So the Eaton trade seems like an overpay unless one of two things are true: 1) Teams have stopped undervaluing defense. (Heyward's contract last year would support that.) 2) Giolito never had the value he was perceived to have by fans. Which of those (or both) do you think it is?
Eno Sarris
12:08
I'd say that it's both but for 2) it's more "he doesn't have the value he was perceived to have earlier any more now that we have MLB data"

So all the excitement over the past few days has led us to the real highlight of the week, the Rule 5 Draft. What do you think about what happened today? Have a few posts lined up for us?

Lightning Round!

Will the marlins move Ramos if they sign Jansen?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Later, when they are not in the playoff hunt, I guess.
Dougie
12:08
Chances the Dodgers miss out on both Jansen and Turner?
Eno Sarris
12:08
Low.

Dusty Baker comes up to you and gives you a firm squeeze on the ass, how do the both of you react?
Eno Sarris
12:09
I tweak his nipple. I actually know him fairly well because we've worked on the First Base Foundation together -- it's a group that helps disadvantaged kids play travel ball.

What the hell are the A's doing? I'm a diehard and I'm worried.
Eno Sarris
12:09
Waiting to get something at a discount I guess. Some of their young guys are coming to fruition, so they just need to find a good way to spend a few million.

why is al avila being so boring?
Eno Sarris
12:10
Been trained in boring by a baseball family. Actually, that team may get better by not selling. They could win a wild card by beating up on the bottom of their division.
Erik
12:11
I see a lot of similarities between Adam Eaton and good Jason Heyward--above-average wRC+ despite only average power, some value on the basepaths, and elite RF defense. Is there significant risk that he collapses just like Heyward did? Or were Heyward's issues unique to Heyward alone, and not indicative of some risk in that player type in general?
Eno Sarris
12:11
I think Heyward's swing comes and goes and is more complicated.

This has been a more active Winter Meetings than normal, right?
Eno Sarris
12:11
It had to be. FA list was terrible, so they had to make more moves.

I think that funk was a backing track to an adult film

Would Maddon use Davis the same way he used Chapman in a postseason series if Davis is fully healthy in 2017?
Eno Sarris
12:12
I think some of that was the fact that both Rondon and Strop lost their stuff late season and Maddon didn't trust them, so there's a lot of moving parts to that question.

Is Soler's bat good enough to be the Royal's DH, or do they need to start getting rid of outfielders?
Eno Sarris
12:13
They said they'd play him at LF and RF and Dyson is a fine backup CF.
Minty

You guys helped me win back to back. Have Bryant/Rizzo/Arenado/Betts/Correa/Beni. Trade 3 yrs of my Springer for 5 of his Dahl? OBP equally cheap.
Eno Sarris
12:14
I'll take the steals and extra years Dahl offers.

The A's not doing anything with the Rule-V draft kinda pisses me off.
Eno Sarris
12:14
not doing anything at all so far!

When you were in college did you drink fine craft beers or swill like the rest of us?
Eno Sarris
12:15
I dunno! Mostly Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. But not like a huge variety of different craft beers.
Erik
12:15
What team's passivity so far is the most frustrating? Whose passivity makes the most sense?
Eno Sarris
12:16
I actually think the A's passivity makes sense. They don't have money, they need the values to fall to them. But the Dodgers... maybe they are more constrained by money that it seems to me.
Drew

Correa is the most expensive player in my league. Is it frowned upon to throw him back in the dynasty auction and try to sign him for less?
Eno Sarris
12:16
That's fantasy baseball.

What's going on this morning? Rosenthal, Heyman, and Passan's twitters have gone all but silent.
