Is Berrios worth holding on to without an NA spot on roster?
Paul Swydan
9:17
Not in a redraft league, no.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:17
Nope, not right now
Phil
9:17

All hail President Kang!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:18
Kang/Villar

Who has been the most disappointing prospect in the minors this year (i.e., excluding Buxton and Berrios)?
Paul Swydan
9:18
Who has been the most disappointing besides the most disappointing?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:19
All the hurt pitchers
Which all seems to by on TDGX team
Paul Swydan
9:20
Ryan McMahon has had quite the slow start.
9:21
Also, really displeased with how Swihart has been shunted aside.

I read Jeffs piece on Russell Martin today, I am still holding hope he snaps out of his funk, but he is starting to feel like a sunk cost. Do you guys think he will figure it out and get to 15 HRs and a .750 OPS?
Paul Swydan
9:21
I have faith. Martin has been counted out before.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:21
No on 15 HRs, but the OPS seems workable
Tim
9:22
Thoughts on Bauer? is he finally getting it together?
Paul Swydan
9:23
He seems better, but hitters are swinging less overall, and less both in and out of the zone. I'd like to see at least his O-Swing% be higher.
But, so far, so good.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:23
I need to see a half season to believe. I have been burnt too many times in the past
Paul Swydan
9:23
Infield in strategy burns again, Jeff. Guess John Farrell didn't read your piece in last year's THT Annual.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:24
He could be a NASCAR driver with the number of corners he's turned
It really doesn't work
Anthony
9:24
Wait...what did I miss w/ Swihart? Why is everyone saying the Red Sox want him out of town?
Paul Swydan
9:25
They sent him down after 6 games when he had a .391 OBP and they have had him start playing left field in Pawtucket, even though the reason he was supposedly sent down was to work on his catcher defense.

Better president: Nixon or Nixon's head?
Paul Swydan
9:26
Like you had to ask!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:27
Nixon for the dual peace signs
Jim
9:27
is piscotty enough to get david price
Paul Swydan
9:27
I certainly wouldn't think so.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:28
No, not really
Battah, Battah, Battah

Really impt. Need hitting in very deep 16 team redraft. Was offered Corey Dickerson for Matt Andriese. I know Dicker has been in a terrible BA slump esp vs Lefties. Thots on Dickerson rest of year? Same owner has Bour. Bour any better? Thanks.
Paul Swydan
9:28
I like Dickerson better. He'll turn it around.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:28
I think I would ride out Dickerson
Trainman
9:29
Over under 35 homers for Byung Ho Park?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:30
Under, but it is a good number IMO
Paul Swydan
9:30
What Jeff said.
Danny Almonte

All of baseball is thrown into a draft. Which current team has the most 1st round draft picks?
Paul Swydan
9:31
Probably Cubs or Dodgers. Maybe Red Sox.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:31
Dodgers
PL
9:31
If Rich Hill keeps up his current rate, what would he fetch in this market?
