The idea that trading Teheran can and should get the braves a package similar to that which they received for Miller is asinine, yes? What is a realistic package if they should decide to move him? Top 50 + Top 100 + lotto tickets?
Paul Swydan
9:18
I find it asinine, at least in a vacuum, but the market being thin might help the Braves fetch more.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:20
They will likely get a decent haul. I think they need to find the right team because I think the perception of his value varies greatly.
Marty Mar
9:20
Any reason to sell high on Starling Marte or is this the real Marte?
Paul Swydan
9:21
It's close. He's probably not going to run a .415 BABIP all year, but if he walks a little bit more, that should even out.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:21
I think he could actually do more with the right amount of luck. He has shown more power in the past.

Either one of you read Jeff Passan's "The Arm", yet?
Paul Swydan
9:22
Jeff is actually referenced in the book twice.
Jeff Zimmerman, that is.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:22
Yep, and wrote a review of the major points at Rotographs ... http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/thoughts-on-jeff-passans-book-the-arm/

Traded Betts ($11) for C.Davis and Stanton (expensive). Please tell me Stanton will turn it around and him and Davis will give me nearly unstoppable homer run power rest of the year(Avg and OPS)
Paul Swydan
9:23
OK, I will, but I still would have kept Mookie.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:24
For just this season, I like the trade. I am not 100% sure when Staton will turn it around.
Alan Rickman
9:24
Galaxy Quest. Duh.
McFly
9:25
Destination Moon the O.G. space travel movie.

The Empire Strikes Back is space travel....

Paul Swydan

I suppose you're right, Harry Caray's Ghost, but I don't think of it that way. Also, that would have been a boring poll because everyone would have just picked that.
Owen

Will Swihart be back in LF when he eventually returns from the DL? Feel like we saw right there why he shouldn't be in LF, and we're seeing now why Vazquez (49 wRC+) shouldn't be getting all the ABs at catcher
Paul Swydan
9:26
Owen my friend, you are most definitely preaching to the choir. Vazquez is destined to be a backup catcher. How long it takes the Red Sox to figure this out will go a long way to telling the story of this season.

Paul I'm safe to assume you now give the Giants better then 50 50 odds of winning the nl west under the current circumstances? Are you there yet too jeff or still solidly behind the idea dodgers pass them up?
Paul Swydan
9:27
I mean, I picked the Giants to win the division, so obviously I agree with that.
Harry Caray's Ghost
9:28
Who do you think takes over the 9th while Papelbon is on the DL?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:28
I am still with the Dodgers, but I would like to see them move some pieces now for some reliable pitching and another bat or two.

Fun Fact: Belt leads all 1b in WRC+
Paul Swydan
Jeff Zimmerman
9:30
Which shows how sad the current state of 1B is

Poll - Star Trek 2 for good overall, with Apollo 13 for a more serious, yet excellent movie. (calling it a two way tie there). With at a hair behind, 2001 (does drag, but still excellent).
Paul Swydan
9:30
Drag/slowness is my main critique of 2001 and Star Treks 1-4.
CC Sabathia
9:32
Am I really going to keep this up all season or do you see me falling off big time after the all star break?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:32
The key is your health. Stay away from the buffet and the bottle
Paul Swydan
9:33
Outside of the home run rate, nothing about his performance screams fluke to me.
Stevo
9:33
Are either one of you guys nerdy enough to see Warcraft in theaters?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:33
Probably not unless my son talks me into it
Paul Swydan
9:33
Nope. Pass. Never played that game, and it's not even that popular any more if I understand the landscape correctly. Not sure how this got greenlit.
Jeet
9:35
Villar or Profar in an OPS dynasty league?
Paul Swydan
9:35
Profar
