Alonso or Smoak, who you got RoS?

Alonso

Do you see Ryan Zimmerman falling back down to earth?
Jeff Sullivan
11:03
I don't know why he'd be a better hitter now than he was when he was 25
I think he's good, but this is a hot streak

What did Dave Dombrowski take away from his tenure in Detroit? Less than two years into his current role he has an extremely thin stars & scrubs roster? Was 'do whatever it takes to acquire a proven closer' really the only thing he took from that experience?
Jeff Sullivan
11:05
Between 2006 - 2014, the Tigers had the third-most wins in all of baseball. Dombrowski's tenure there looks pretty good.

What type of return do you expect the White Sox get for David Robertson, assuming they decide to deal him?
Jeff Sullivan
11:06
Depends how much of the money they eat. The 2018 commitment is a little off-putting
Jack

Thoughts on supposedly A. Miller topping at 91 these past few games?
Jeff Sullivan
11:07
Not true. Just topped out at 95.8, and the game before, he reached 97.4, according to Brooks Baseball

The Rockies tried piggybacking starters and everyone on the planet laughed.  The Dodgers do the same exact thing and everyone acts like it's a revelation in starter management.  Why?
Jeff Sullivan
11:08
The Rockies had bad pitchers
But we also just have a better understanding of optimal pitcher usage now
In a sense the Rockies were progressive

How much, if any, effect will a new pitching coach have on the A's staff
Jeff Sullivan
11:08
I can't imagine much. Having better defenders like Brugman and Chapman around will be helpful though
11:09
All right, I need 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
