Highest OPS at the end of the year: Trevor Story, Tyler White, or Brock Holt?
Paul Swydan
9:34
I'm going to say White.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:34
Story, Coors factor will help a tone

Is the Shark-nado in Colorado going to obliterate my stats like a trailer park?
Paul Swydan
9:35
I'll say no.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:36
It could be rough, but I had McHugh and Greinke in the same league. I expect to be bottom half for a while in that league
Jon
9:36
Cervelli, M montero, nick hundly and others on the waiver wire? should i stick it out with russell martin? just the april blues
Paul Swydan
9:36
Yeah, I'd ride with Russell for now.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:37
Go with Martin, and it is the first 10-days blues

Can we get an updated announcer's ranking just so the world knows that the Nats have the absolute worst TV crew in the business?
Paul Swydan
9:37
Carson has started the process!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:37
Yea Carson

Rich Hill - Is he for real? 4 of his last 6 games have been 10+ Ks and <=1 BB
Paul Swydan
9:38
He's definitely more real than Joe Kelly.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:38
Not sure if real, but don't cut him right now
Paul Swydan
9:39
As I said earlier, I do like Hill a lot.
Curtis

Besides Kawasaki, who is your favorite "terrible" player? one you just can't help but root for even though he brings little to the table every night...
Jeff Zimmerman
9:39
Bruce Chen
Paul Swydan
9:39
Kawasaki is definitely not on my list of favorite terrible players. But Franklin Morales is.
Mr. Wrestling IV
9:40
IMPORTANT - Is Joe Kelly a bridge troll?
Paul Swydan
9:40
He's so bad that he's not even good enough to be a troll. He just is terrible.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:40
Paul?
Jon
9:40
Not that he needs one, but does Vin Scully always not have a color commentator? He did the game by himself today (seems lonely).
Paul Swydan
9:40
Uh, Vin always does the game by himself.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:41
Yep
Curtis
9:41
Is there a list of all the batter who have lost home runs by being "Robbed" at the wall? If so, any idea who leads it?
Paul Swydan
9:41
This is a great question. I'm pretty sure that there are lists kept for outfielders who have robbed home runs, but I have no idea if a corresponding batter list is kept. My guess is it would be a lot of hitters with 1 home run robbed.
But I'd still like to know!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:41
I may be able to find it out over the past 4-5 years, but nothing official
Jon
9:42
I have multiple shares of carlos gomez. Should i try and flip him? gomez? what could i get for him?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:43
I wouldn't. And like I said earlier, look for players taken around the same area of the draft. These should be similarly valued players
Paul Swydan
9:43
You're going to have to hold on to him for now.
The Dude of NY
9:43
Paul, did you get a ring?
Paul Swydan
9:44
I did, yes. I had to pay taxes on it though, which was annoying.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:44
?
The Dude of NY
9:44
What's the minimum velocity a pitcher needs to be successful? Is Weaver currently acting as a case study?
Paul Swydan
9:45
He might be, ya. I'd say it's something like 84-85, but let's give Weaver some time here.
With the exception being the knuckleballers, obviously.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:45
With a 3/4 delivery, probably 83 is the min. Some side armers and submariners can get away with less.
