I know Lorenzen would like to start, so there could be something there. Bradley could start again if Corbin and others struggle. I think Devenski remains where he is

A team loses their entire major league roster, and has to play this season only using who they have within their minor league system. Which MLB club would have the most success?
Jeff Sullivan
10:12
Feels like it's the Dodgers
Warren

Miguel Sano hit a good home run yesterday and I enjoyed watching it. This is more of a comment than a question.
Jeff Sullivan
10:12
All of his home runs are good home runs
Peter
10:13
Tuning in for Kershaw-Greinke?
Jeff Sullivan
10:13
Got plans, but I'll be tuning into the archived footage afterward
Matt
10:13
Best hair = Eno!
Jeff Sullivan
10:13
There's a difference between best and most distinctive
Ryan

Does Andrelton Simmons get any credit in his defensive metrics for that great tag play the other night, or is that simply ignored?
Jeff Sullivan
10:14
That's a good question. I don't know enough. I'd guess he goes without credit. Don't know how a metric would possibly know what to do with a play like that
Mariners 4eva
10:14
Is there reason to believe Nelson Cruz will get it going again soon?
Jeff Sullivan
10:14
Everything he's done in recent history
Pete

Which player do you most want to drink beer with? Which player do you most want to trampoline with? Which player do you most want to play in a volcano with?
Jeff Sullivan
10:14
Never play in a volcano
Poas erupted yesterday
Never play in a volcano.
10:15
I think it would be great to hang with Tom Wilhelmsen
Jerry
10:15
Who has a better year, Aaron Nola or Luis Severino?
Jeff Sullivan
10:15
Nola
10:16
As a general rule, I will almost always prefer Nola in any such question
Tanner

Which team is the furthest away from playoff contention? I'm leaning Royals, since it doesn't seem like they're good enough to contend this year, they start to lose their core next year, and there's not much in their farm currently.
Jeff Sullivan
10:16
I feel like that's the right answer
10:17
I could see that it could be, say, the Marlins or the Reds, but I think it's the Royals
Robert
10:17
What exactly was the point for the Alex Jackson trade? Povse and Whalen don't seem close to making the rotation and Jackson still has middle of the order potential. That one sticks out as a trade Dipoto made "just because".
Jeff Sullivan
10:18
Relatively safe, low-ceiling pitching depth. One GM preferred safer assets, the other GM preferred a higher-risk, higher-reward asset
Marty
10:18
Loria is planning a 10' statue of Jose Fernandez. Bad idea or the worst idea?
Jeff Sullivan
10:18
This is way too difficult a question for an on-the-fly baseball chat
Mike
10:19
Will Judge or Bird hit more HR this year
Jeff Sullivan
10:19
I'll say Judge. Bird's got Carter behind him
Travis

Bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, your team is trailing by 1 run, but has the bases loaded. Who would you rather have at bat: Byron Buxton or a piece of toast?
Jeff Sullivan
10:19
Good luck to any pitcher trying not to walk a piece of toast
CaptainPeanutbutter
10:19
haha that pham tweet is great. Wonder if the team will say anything to him about it though
Jeff Sullivan
10:20
Almost certainly yes. And so, bit by bit, baseball-player social media becomes less fun
HugoZ
10:20
Are we finally seeing the decline of online chats?
Jeff Sullivan
10:20
They collapsed years ago
It's been awful ever since
Ruffx2Tweet&Cameron
10:20
Is it common for BsR to jump all over the map from season to season?
Jeff Sullivan
10:21
Depends what you mean. The magnitudes are almost always pretty small, and shifts of like three or five runs don't mean much, typically
Andrew

1,309 days until Matheny's contract ends. Please tell me I don't have to wait that long
