Hi everybody!
Let's talk some baseball.

sounds good

Reddick - extended or traded?
Paul Swydan
9:01
I would say traded, but I'll admit I haven't been closely following this situation.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:01
Neither have I

I remember reading in one of the chats that Fangraphs+ will be free. Is that true? If so, when?
Paul Swydan
9:02
I believe that is the case, yes. Late next month.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:02
Probably when Eno gets done with the edits.

What should I expect from Ian Desmond this year? Is all hope lost with him, or is there a reasonable chance he can be a top 10 dynasty SS for the next few years?
Paul Swydan
9:03
Somewhere in the middle probably. I'm not banking on him to be top 10, but that says as much about the new blood as it does Desmond.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:03
If you look, seven of the past eight-half seasons have been the same (good), just this year's first half was bad. I think some team will get a bargain on him.
Billy from CO
9:04
Duffy or Panik?
Paul Swydan
9:04
I'll say Panik, but I like them both.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:04
I think Duffy, but close.

Assuming we are in bizarro-world where the Dickerson/McGee+ deal goes through, what would it take for the Indians to get Jennings?
Paul Swydan
9:06
I'm not sure it would take a ton, given that the Rays would be the ones with less trade leverage, but then I'm also not a huge Jennings fan. I've always thought of him as a little overrated.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:07
Why would they really want Jennings? I think the Indians could do better.
Ryan
9:07
London games sound fun for fans, but sound like a disaster for players. Wasn't hurting Clayton Kershaw with that stupid Australia plane-ride enough to say that?
Paul Swydan
9:08
More than that, I just don't see the appeal of trying to break into a sports market that is already incredibly rabid for one sport.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:08
Nope, it will come down to money. I do expect to east coast teams to be involved with it though

Favorite closer in waiting to snag later in fantasy drafts?
Paul Swydan
9:09
Seems like there will need to be multiple Tampa options.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:10
Cingrani and the stud in Arizona .... Silvino Bracho
Sorry, had to look the name up.

Dynasty league question: We always hear people say that 'flags fly forever' and as defending champ believe me I want to fly another one this year. But I'm awfully tempted to keep Wil Myers over Adrian Gonzalez given the 8+ year age difference, even though I think Gonzalez is an easy choice in a redraft league. At what point does age become a legitimate consideration in dynasty?
Paul Swydan
9:11
I would just take Gonzalez. I'm not so sure that Myers will ever be as good as Gonzalez has been or will be.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:12
Even when going for it, you can still look to future. I would keep Myers.
Mike D
9:12
Paul, is it you who doesn't like Joe Maddon? Can I ask why?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:13
Not me, I don't really like, but don't dislike him either.
Paul Swydan
9:13
It IS me. It is in large part due to his breeding animosity toward the Red Sox, and partially because he flaunts how smart he thinks he is constantly. Which leads to him getting too cute.
Bob Smiley
9:15
dickerson to the Rays? would love to see him in SF. or Houston. any other contenders in the mix for him?
Paul Swydan
9:15
Sorry, got distracted.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:16
He would fit in with the previously mentioned Indians
Paul Swydan
9:16
It honestly is hard to get a read on what the Rockies are doing. They make a point to talk to very few people, so it's likely that rumors about them are coming from third parties, which may or may not be trustworthy.
But yes, I'd love to see him in SF or Houston. Or any team that has a legit chance of winning. Boston'd work too.

the Canadian media has poisoned me against the Jays b/c of how biased they are towards the jays and their players. So realistically where is stroman next year top 20-30 pitcher? less? The media makes it sound like he is an ace but i see a #2 possible 1.5
