I think Minnesota. They have a very high beta. If Sano and Buxton and Park are all the studs they can be, that might be a dangerous team. Especially if they also trade for some bullpen help at some point.

Oakland, Minnesota, Arizona and Baltimore are trying to win. May go with AZ.

Thinking ahead to the 2017 season, which OF would you rather keep: Sano or Schwarber?
Paul Swydan

Sano
Jeff Zimmerman

Just OF, Sano.

I posted a bunch of good questions last week or two weeks ago that I have now forgot. Can you go back and answer them now? I think one was about relievers.

Sorry, no soup for you!

If you were drafting this weekend, or soon, how much would you dock Aroldis Chapman given uncertainty over a possible suspension? 12 team mixed. I feel like there's a value possibility there but it comes with a fair amount of risk. Thoughts?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:18
No, sorry
I wrote about this a week or so ago .... finding link...
Paul Swydan
9:19
Personally, I wouldn't touch Chapman until I know the suspension. But I don't think I've ever drafted him to begin with, because I don't like to pay a lot for relievers.

The auction is winding down, I need a closer, and I can beat any bid by $1. Which lower end AL closer do I take among Doolittle, Storen, or Cishek?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:20
Around 10 days, Reyes will get the hammer though
Paul Swydan
9:20
Probably Doolittle has the most upside.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:21
Any of them in AL-only, but I guess Doolittle

If you're going old school, hard to top Space Mountain. New school, definitely the one in Animal Kingdom where the rollercoaster goes all the way to the top, and then drops you backwards. That one is sick.

Would a duck make a good pet?

Sure, just don't feed it too much whiskey.
Jeff Zimmerman

For a day or two until you eat it.

Pretty good deal for Latos, huh? Now - Fowler or Jackson?

More impressive feat: Cubs not winning the World Series since 1908 or no Canadian NHL team winning the Stanley Cup since 1993?
Paul Swydan
9:23
Not sure impressive is the correct word, but Cubs.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:24
Cubs, especially when there were less teams

Dodgers sign both gourriel brothers then trade them to Miami for Giancarlo yes or no.
Paul Swydan
9:24
Maybe to the first part, no to the second. The Marlins aren't that dumb. If they want those guys, they'll sign them.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:24
No way

Is Neil Walker and upgrade, downgrade, or a "meh" replacement for Murphy?
Paul Swydan
9:25
Somewhere between meh and upgrade.

Do you think the Phillies will be a little bit better than people think? Of course they'll be terrible, but if a few breaks happen, I can see an 78-79 win team. Which is sad in its own right because if that's considered a success...
Paul Swydan
9:26
Well, I wrote about this on Friday, and I think they'll be a fun team who has a lot of players on whom you can dream. But I think 78-79 might be a stretch.

What are your thoughts on Shawn Tolleson for this year? Chances he's as good as he was in 2015?
Paul Swydan
9:26
I would say 0.1 percent chance he's as good this year. It could happen, but I'm not banking on that at all.

Who do you think designed Puppy Monkey Baby: Dr Mengele or Dr. Moreau?
