OK let's do this. To answer a question I saw a couple of times, I don't really consider Star Wars to be a space *travel* movie. Sue me.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:03
Holy cow, made it. I was just catching some college summer league baseball.
Paul Swydan
9:04
And my vote is probably The Martian, though there's definitely some recency bias there.
Hannah Hochevar
9:04
Tarkovsky's Solaris.
Paul Swydan
9:04
That I've never seen. Consider it on the list!
Honu
9:04
Worse look....man bun or mullet?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:05
Yes
Paul Swydan
9:05
Tough, though when I saw August unleash all the hair from his man bun I immediately demanded that he put his hair back into his man bun, so...
Slow Rollers
9:06
Do you think one or more of these players could be a top twenty outfielder this season Will Myers, Ozuna, Piscotty? (OPB and SLG instead of AVG)
Paul Swydan
9:06
Is Ozuna not currently a top 20 outfielder?
9:07
I like both of their chances to finish as such. Ozuna more than the others.
JBJ homer.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:07
I think all three could be. The right mix of talent and luck could put them all there
You’re a Dahl
9:07
What are the odds David Dahl gets called up prior to September 1?
Paul Swydan
9:07
I think pretty good. I think he could get that last week of August call.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:08
10%, I just don't see it happening until then.
Prospecting
9:08
If Cody Reed (Reds) and Braden Shipley are called up tomorrow and you can only claim one for the rest of the season in a 5x5 NL only league, which would you take?
Paul Swydan
9:09
Probably Reed.
Shipley is a year older, doesn't have the Ks, and his low BB% seems like an aberration.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:09
I think Shipley, I think the D-Backs will help him with more Wins and his WHIP and ERA. It is close though
Belted
9:10
Does The Fifth Element count?
Paul Swydan
9:10
Yeah, I think so. Lot of good choices I left off. I forgot Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy too.
What's your pick, Jeff?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:11
2001, such a classic
Nathan
9:12
Is there anything encouraging about Giancarlo at this point or is it purely track record? He is so so bad.
Paul Swydan
9:12
I'm comfortable remaining optimistic based on his track record.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:13
Keep track of his average batted ball speed. He is seeing the largest drop since last season with a 7 mph drop. He is not close to the same hitter
Moose
9:13
With the Darvish injury, is he now officially "injury-prone"?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:14
No, not IMO. A lot of pitchers have issues when coming back from TJS like Stras and Jose Fernandez
Paul Swydan
9:14
I don't think so either.
N.W.enO
9:15
Does Star Wars not count? I'd actually vote for E.T.
Paul Swydan
9:15
Fair choice, but the actual space travel comes right at the end.
Mr. Ed
9:16
Wilmer Flores seems to hit pretty well when he gets regular at bats. Do you think the Mets let him play?
Paul Swydan
9:17
Well, he's the de facto starter at third base until David Wright comes back. So for now, yes.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:17
No, he seems destined to be an Athletic.

Space travel-ish movie: Moon
Paul Swydan
9:17
It's a space movie, but it's not really about space *travel*. I do love that movie though.
