I haven't seen them officially announce anything, but then they don't need to. They'll monitor him closely and respond to his workload if they need to

Dexter Fowler - Idiot for thinking he was getting a one year opt out or world class troll?
Jeff Sullivan
10:33
Difference between what a player wants and what a player thinks he's going to get
Fowler pretty obviously wanted a chance to return to the market in a year. That was always going to be difficult given the QO
Brett W

Hello! Fowler is better than Coghlan, or just a better fit for the 2016 Cubs?
Jeff Sullivan
10:33
More just a better fit

Are we really friends or spectators?
Jeff Sullivan
10:34
I think we're internet friends

What is the over/under for combined projected starts made by Pineda/tanaka/severino/eovaldi?
Jeff Sullivan
10:34
100?

Who gets back to contention sooner: the Phillies or the Braves?
Jeff Sullivan
10:35
Phillies. Crazy resources to start building up fast
Eric

How did you become a Sens fan?
Jeff Sullivan
10:35
Back in 1992 or whenever I looked at the NHL standings in the newspaper and I saw Ottawa at the bottom and I felt bad for them

Did Ian Desmond cost himself more money than anyone in baseball history by turning down the extension offer last year from the Nats?
Jeff Sullivan
10:37
I'll give Desmond this: it's still possible he earns all that money. He just needs to go somewhere this year and do well enough he attracts more market confidence next winter
But I'm sure not a day goes by that Desmond doesn't think about how rich he almost was
I guess it helps that he's still made more than $23 million already in his career

Any chance there will ever be play log type information available for defensive or baserunning metrics? Would be interesting to see how the final numbers are arrived at, how much is debited/credited in each instance, etc
Jeff Sullivan
10:38
I agree with you! I don't think we're on the verge of that, but in theory, I agree with you. Once a month or so I wish I could pull up the best and worst defensive plays of a given time frame
Joel
10:39
Danny Hultzen as a reliever, do you like it in theory? I feel like there is no chance he breaks camp with the M's though...how say you?
Jeff Sullivan
10:39
He'll slip through waivers but the bullpen is the best shot right now since he's built up zero stamina

What are the odds that Jurickson Profar gets a shot at the Rangers' left field job?
Jeff Sullivan
10:40
Well, he has played the outfield before. It's not a bad idea as a temporary thing. Maybe as Gallo protection
Ron Stamos
10:42
Which current MLB manager would have the highest WAR if they decided to play this season? Dave Roberts? Matheny? Ausmus? Ventura?
Jeff Sullivan
10:42
I want to say Craig Counsell, but the man is 45 years old. So maybe Kevin Cash?
10:43
The problem is Cash probably still projects for a negative WAR, so is that really any better than 0?
Hammerin Hank
10:43
Jason Heyward play 150 games this season. How many in RF and how many in CF?
Jeff Sullivan
10:43
120/30?
Murdoc

How impressive is it that the Indians' highest paid player (Santana) is only making $8.25 million this year? Some NHL teams can't even beat that.
Jeff Sullivan
10:43
Indians fans might not agree that "impressive" is the right word
Brad
10:44
Say something about how the A's managed to trade for a second Josh Reddick for the low price of Aaron Brooks. They are the same player a year apart in age.
Jeff Sullivan
10:44
Coghlan is probably a worse outfielder, and he's only got one more year of control. I actually kind of like Brooks
Merv Throneberry
10:44
Will Greinke deliver for AZ this year or is he gonna pull a throneberry?
Jeff Sullivan
10:44
I don't know what this means
Greinke is good
Alex
10:45
Would you rather see a SF-LAD, CHC-PIT/STL, or a NYM-WAS NLCS?
Jeff Sullivan
10:45
Giants/Dodgers, but then I'm a West Coast individual
The Average Sports Fan
10:45
What can the Reds expect for Jay Bruce in a trade?
Jeff Sullivan
10:45
B- prospect
