re Reyes, I remember a decade ago I asked Joe Morgan in an ESPN chat whether Sir Sidney Ponson would end up in Japan. Ponosn had done something, I forget what, drunk driving maybe. Morgan's answer was "They have rules in Japan too!"
Paul Swydan

They do indeed, which is why I mentioned Indy leagues and lesser leagues like Taiwan, which is where Manny Ramirez ended up playing after his domestic violence arrest.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:53
Reyes is totally headed to the Sugar Land Skeeters before over seas
B.B. Rodriguez
9:53
Donaldson is right there for mvp again....
Paul Swydan
9:53
Yes, he is as well.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:53
He has quietly turned his season around
Cole Blaque

Would you trade Braun straight up for Carrasco in a keep forever dynasty? 10 teams, 10 keepers, 5x5 plus ops, k/bb. Really need pitching.
Paul Swydan
9:54
Um, yes.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:55
Yes. This is the time of year to start going after needs vs. talent
Minty

Profar or Baez for a dynasty?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:55
Profar
Paul Swydan
9:56
I'm going to say Profar as well. The interesting thing is that they're the same age.

meanwhile, the NL MVP is Clayton Kershaw or...or Bryce Harper tricking the voters into thinking his 2015 stats are his 2016 stats too
Paul Swydan
9:57
It's an illuuuuuuusion!
Jeff Zimmerman
9:57
I think Harper will turn it back on as he gets a little more healthy

I'm rebuilding my team for 2017, and need some pitchers for next year. Is it worth making a big offer for Snell or Berrios, who are cheap in my league? Do you have a preference for Snell or Berrios?
Paul Swydan
9:58
I'd say Snell. But if you want to gear up for 2017, you might try to find a pitcher who is about one more year established than a rookie like Snell.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:58
Snell, I think. Berriros is still a little young IMO
Jared
9:58
Keeper forever league: Margot or Jake Lamb? Paxton or Adrian Beltre?
Paul Swydan
9:58
Margot. Beltre.
Beltre will bury us all.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:59
Margot and I think Beltre. The second one is tougher
Paul Swydan
9:59
We were playing "who will be the last player remaining that is older than you" the other day at the Mets game, and it became pretty clear that mine is Beltre.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:59
Colon is it for me

'Sup. Which c would you cut - weiters or gattis?
Paul Swydan
10:00
The first time I read this I thought you were asking if you should cut your...you know what, I don't even want to type it.
Gattis, probably.
Jeff Zimmerman
10:00
Depends if I need power (Gattis) or AVG (Weiters)
Bryan
10:01
Harper and Nola or Kerhsaw and Sano?
Paul Swydan
10:01
I'll say Kershaw and Sano.
Jeff Zimmerman

Harper
Guest

Bye, fam.
Jeff Zimmerman
10:02
Well, off to marinate some pork belly to make some bacon. Bye
Paul Swydan
10:02
Bye, fam. Thanks for hanging out, as always. Again, probably no chat next week. Stay safe on those internets.
