Nope!

I suppose the wildcard makes anybody halfway decent a "contender", but what's the likelihood that the Rockies are "really good" in the next 5 years?
Jeff Sullivan
11:14
Where is the "really good" level? 90 wins? 95 wins?
I can see the Rockies pushing 90 wins once or twice. 95 would be considerably tougher because to me, a lot of the pitching remains unproven

Hosmer is garbage. Why would KC want to keep him?
Jeff Sullivan
11:14
They like him more than WAR does

the drop in Sale's K rate is ____ for potential buyers
Jeff Sullivan
11:14
I think they'll mostly accept that it's a consequence of Sale intentionally trying to generate earlier contact

Who/what has stood out for you do far in Arizona?

Is the whole $8 million per WAR theory based on flawed logic that a win costs the same for every team? Doesn't that skew some of our ideas about trade value as well? Or am I missing something there.
Jeff Sullivan

Players tend to go to the highest bidders, and the highest bidders tend to coalesce around the $8-million mark
Dudley

Do you read the McCann chatter as accurate reflection of market or someone attempt to create one?
Jeff Sullivan
11:16
He's almost certainly going somewhere.
All right, it's time to get rolling!

So thank you everybody for hanging out, and I'm sorry for what I didn't or couldn't address. We'll do it again next week at the same time, and until then, be well and have great days
