Congratulations! You were Lenny Harris

Loved the baseball dorks article. However, as a baserunning dork, I guess I'll just show myself out.
Jeff Sullivan
9:33
I should've tried to include more categories. Can't leave out the niche-interest groups
9:34
But I never would've imagined there were baserunning dorks. That's awesome!
Carlos Martinez
9:34
My shoulder will be a problem for me this season ? 180,5 IP +/-
Jeff Sullivan
9:34
I'll take the under

The one thing I miss about CoverItLive is the lack of content jokes.
Jeff Sullivan
9:34
This is a worthy substitute
NutButters
9:34
Top AL Bullpens top to bottom for sustained impact, including swingmen - BOS, NYY, KC ?
Jeff Sullivan
9:35
I love Baltimore's bullpen, and I think I also love Texas' bullpen
9:36
It wouldn't surprise me too much of the Orioles and Rangers wound up with the top AL bullpen WPAs
I see where the Rangers are ranked in our depth charts but I think that undersells them
Andrew

Hi Jeff! I throw 82mph as a lefty, how much do you think the angels will sign me for?
Jeff Sullivan
9:37
Probably important to recognize that the Angels didn't sign Jered Weaver when he was throwing like this

Is there a Ethier-to-the-Orioles trade that would make sense?
Jeff Sullivan
9:37
Not anymore, I don't think
Jon Snow
9:38
Think Sam Dyson can overtake Shawn Tolleson for the closer job?
Jeff Sullivan
9:38
I'm going to guess they prefer having Dyson available to try to work out of jams
Tolleson is better suited to enter with a clean slate
2-D
9:39
Who do you think is closing for the Mariners at the All-Star break?

Is Mt. St. Helens National Park worth visiting?
Jeff Sullivan
9:39
God yes
9:40
I'm biased because I've hiked and camped up and all around the mountain, but it's so fantastic. No other place like it in the country. The scale of it will blow your mind. Go on a nice day. If possible, go on a few nice days

What is your secret favorite band or song no one knows about?
Jeff Sullivan
9:42
have recently gotten into Monochromie thanks to Reel Rock 10

More likely: Pedro Alvarez is a 2+ WAR player or 2) Pedro Alvarez is DFAed before the trade deadline?
Jeff Sullivan
9:44
Alvarez is going to hit. Now, it's not very easy to be a two-win DH, but I think that's the more likely course of the two
9:45
If Alvarez can get a little luck and manage a 130 wRC+, then there you go, provided he doesn't run the bases like Kendrys Morales
Jells
9:46
When does Trea Turner take over as Starting SS?
Jeff Sullivan
9:46
June
The answer is usually June
Erik
9:47
Given 5 players with 45-grade tools across the board except for one 80-grade tool, how would you rank the 5 classic tools in terms of total projected career value?
Jeff Sullivan
9:48
My guess, in order from most to least valuable: power, average, speed, fielding, arm
Ben

Beltre has a good chance to pass Griffey this year in fWAR. Great 30s are great.
Jeff Sullivan
9:49
Griffey: 77.7. Beltre: 74.9!
Look at that second graph
9:51
At age 30, Griffey was up by more than 32 wins
Gap now is less than three
