So, I'm tempted to say a lot, but he's old. Might be able to get 1 top 50 prospect + one top 150 prospect.

Melvin Upton is outperforming Justin Upton. What a time to be alive.
Paul Swydan
9:32
Just like the old days!
Jeff Zimmerman

I wonder what the Vegas odds would have been on that happening?
25 to 1?

Will Smith and now Garrett Richards attempting rehab v. the cut. Any thoughts on the success of people who go this route?
Paul Swydan

Jeff knows better than me, but they usually fail. Tanaka is an exception, though it's expected that at some point he'll still need the surgery.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:35
Few are successful, but Wainwright, Tanaka, and Ervin Santana all at least made it a few seasons.

What are your thoughts with Odors suspension? I think it's just right. I was guessing 10 max.
Paul Swydan
9:36
It's fine. It is what he had coming based on prior incidents/suspensions.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:36
Seems fine without a league warning they were going to be harsher.

starting pineda tonite in zona?
Paul Swydan
9:37
Roll the dice. Don't be afraid in May. Being afraid is for July or August.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:38
Yea, rolled de la Rosa in Colorado last week and came up good.

The NBA lottery is rigged. What say you?
Paul Swydan
9:38
Rigged.
9:39
There's really no upside to it not being rigged.
From the league's perspective.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:39
I heard an interesting comment today that even if it wasn't rigged, there was a 60% chance people would say it was after tonight
Paul Swydan
9:39
Ha.
Count me in the 60%.

Newsflash: Thor is awesome. Happy mets fan here.
Paul Swydan
9:40
It was, but Thor 2: The Dark World was pretty bad.
Big Mike
9:41
What do you see as Matt Bush's upside?
Paul Swydan
9:41
I think this is it. He made the majors. Everything after this is gravy.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:42
Truthfully, not really sure.
Coach
9:42
Jon Gray startable in all non-Coors games?
Paul Swydan
9:43
I think he's startable in all games, Coors or not.
But yes, definitely the non-Coors games.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:43
Yes, depending on the league depth.
Danny Almonte

Mentioned an article about infield in. Could you please provide a link for that?
