We quietly already have
Jon
11:07
Mark Trumbo. Are you there? Any ideas
Jeff Sullivan
11:07
This is what he does. It's like Justin Upton without the walks
Charlie Morton
11:08
What happened to my "increased velocity" ? Doesn't appear to be effective for me.
Jeff Sullivan
11:08
Morton's been fine. Still inefficient, but I don't know if he can conquer that
James
11:09
Will Freddie Freeman ever win an MVP?
Jeff Sullivan
11:09
Doubtful
Bryan
11:09
What would you rate Judge's game power now? 70? He was also showing a 20/60 on the fangraphs page. That probably needs some amending.
Jeff Sullivan
11:09
70 sounds right. Obviously peak 80
Mike Scioscia
11:09
Why do I trust all my poorer relievers and dont trust my good ones?
Jeff Sullivan
11:09
On paper you don't have any good relievers
11:10
But Bedrosian, Norris, and Parker have seen high-leverage spots. That's what makes the most sense to me
Ralph
11:10
Do you think Aaron Altherr is making himself into a cornerstone piece for the Phillies?
Jeff Sullivan
11:10
Big fan! Wrote him up in March
Tim
11:12
Has Mark Reynolds actually changed anything?
Jeff Sullivan
11:12
Same contact rate as last year. It just helps to hit in Colorado is all
Good for power *and* good for contact
Trevor
11:13
Does Fangraph's recruit writers with snark or is it just a thing that happens there?
Jeff Sullivan
11:13
It's the entire internet
The internet is tactless
Patrick
11:13
Should the astros consider trading springer for a better lineup fit? Lefty middle of the order type like schwarber or conforto
Jeff Sullivan
11:13
lol no
Jean Segura
11:13
Has my hot April helped persuade doubters that I'm a less powerful, but still very effective version of my last year?
Jeff Sullivan
11:14
You missed half of it on the disabled list
Mike
11:14
How many hours of the week do you think about baseball? Either during work hours or in just general thought
Jeff Sullivan
11:14
It's nearly constant during the week. I almost never think about baseball during the weekend
All right, I need to get rolling
11:15
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
