Profar and ...Urias. If you can wait, see what Buxton ends up doing
Paul Swydan
9:50
Yeah I don't hate Buxton, just not remotely sold at this point.

Need pitching (ratios sucks) and considering moving Xander or Mazara. What level of starter should I target for them? Cole too high? What if I package them?
Paul Swydan
9:52
Cole is not too high in my opinion, though you might have a tougher time getting someone to bite on Mazara for Cole straight up.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:52
I think you can get someone better than Cole, but he is in the right range

Kershaw +/- 25 walks this season? +/- 11.5 K/BB?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:53
+25, +11.5K/BB .... think
Paul Swydan
9:53
Isn't it ridiculous that we can even talk about this? I'll take the under on walks and the ............ the over on the K/BB.

Dynasty league.. who needs to add to a Harper for Kershaw deal or is it even?
Paul Swydan
9:55
That is some Ted Williams for Joe DiMaggio stuff right there, my friend. Honestly, while I think Kershaw is the better player, he's also the pitcher, so if any side needs to add to mitigate risk, it's the Kershaw side.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:55
I think it is even at this point, but would take the Kershaw side
Cubs Rule

Thoughts on Shields going back to familiar ground in the AL. Think playing for a contender, knowing the hitters better and overall the AL Central doesn't have killer offenses outweighs his drop in velo and homer proness?
Jeff Zimmerman
9:57
I think you are over thinking it.
Paul Swydan
9:57
Not sure I want to ride that "knows the hitters narrative" too hard, since he's been gone for two years. Buxton and Park weren't around two years ago, just off the tippy top of my head, and I'm sure we could come up with plenty of other examples. Correa, etc. Having said that, he's still a decent pitcher and isn't being asked to carry his new team. I'm all for it.

50 game suspension for Ventura? A message needs to be sent to him.
Paul Swydan
9:58
Guys, the Orioles fan is upset. Just so you know.
No, Ventura is not going to get a 50-game suspension.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:58
15 probably. Twice what Odor got seems reasonable
Paul Swydan
9:59
Yeah, three starts. Comes down to 2 on appeal.

Good brawl tonight in Balt. Go figure, Ventura throwing at another player. This is one of the main reason I hate the DH. Seems to me pitchers would be less willing to throw at people if they in turn had to go stand in the box. What say you?
Paul Swydan
9:59
Pretty sure this is wrong. Haven't the Dbacks and Pirates been league leaders in HBP in recent seasons?
Jeff Zimmerman
10:00
I hate watching pitchers hit compared to the occasional brawl.
Paul Swydan
Astros
10:01
Didn't realize until I saw that K/BB leaderboard... Thor is at 9 K/BB?!?
Paul Swydan
10:01
Yeah he's pretty good too, eh?
10:02
You all are pretty good as well, but unfortunately, Jeff and I have to sign off at this point. Thanks as always for hanging out, and we'll see you next week!
Jeff Zimmerman
Bye.
