Am I coming out of left field? Klawchat.

Is the Mets season over?
Keith Law
1:32
That seems a little dramatic, but I don't like their situation at all. They came into the year with no pitching depth, and now they're in a situation where they need pitching depth to stay afloat.
Mike

Could the Mets have not meted out some sort of discipline for Thor after refusing an MRI?
Keith Law
1:33
Absolutely not.
Clowning Not Waving

Bellinger gonna stay up?
Keith Law
1:33
He should stay up, whether at 1b or in LF. Whether he will or not, I don't know. They're a better team with him in the lineup every day. You'd like to think that would win the day.
Mike

0% chance Adam Jones is telling the truth, correct?
Keith Law
1:34
I think your question was truncated by the software. I'm sure you meant 100% chance he's telling the truth. Unless you're some sort of white power nut.
Anthony

Not to offend the #StickToSports crowd, but this latest attempt to repeal the ACA appears to be especially monstrous even for the GOP.
Keith Law
1:35
A bill many reps haven't even read! But hey, it gives the top 2% billions in tax cuts. We tried that around 15 years ago, and it didn't stimulate the economy the way supply-side economists predicted. Maybe let's not try that again.
John

Can't thank you enough for your book. Loving every page of it.
Keith Law
1:35
Glad you're enjoying it. My thanks to all of you who've purchased it already.

Barring some miraculous season turn around, how should the Jays handle Josh Donaldson? Look to trade him at the deadline? The offseason? Try to extend him? Give it a go next year and risk losing him in free agency?
Keith Law
1:36
I think he's their best trade piece, and they should be ready and willing to do that this summer. Their hole is bigger than the Mets', given the division in which they play and their rotation woes.

any buzz on what the Dodgers might do? Prep bat?
Keith Law
1:36
I've heard they like Bubba Thompson a lot, but I don't think they are focusing on prep bats as a class - it'll be BPA.
Slint

Your thoughts on Giolito's continued struggles? I know you were (are) a big fan of him
Keith Law
1:37
Still am. White Sox continue to try to unravel the delivery changes the Nats made. I don't know about yesterday but I know two starts ago his velo was mid-90s again. Just be patient.
Jonah
1:37
Thoughts on Kevin Kramer? Future starter?
Keith Law
1:37
Future utility guy.
Bosa
1:37
What kind of ceiling do you see with Jordan Hicks?
Keith Law
1:37
Potential #1-#2 starter.
RSO
1:37
How many homers does Aaron Judge end up with by season's end?
Keith Law
1:37
I'll say 41.
Chris
1:37
Are you a buyer that future WAR for the Cubs has Bryant and Russell as 1-2?
Keith Law
1:37
You've asked this twice but I don't understand the question.
Bob
1:38
If for some reason Greene and McKay are gone - would you go with Beck at 3, what I have read, high upside - and use the savings to get a guy at top of second
Keith Law
1:38
Nope. Would take Wright there. Not sold that there will be enough quality prep prospects at the top of the second to justify taking a lesser player at pick 3 (or 4 or 5).
Ron
1:38
Hi Keith-Maybe Buxton is starting to find it a little more at the plate? Walking more and not hacking so much at stuff off of the plate. Man, is he fun to watch in the field and running the bases. The power is legit, if he gets it together, watch out.
Keith Law
1:39
As with Giolito ... patience.
Greg
1:39
If you were GM of the Jays, do you wait another month (SMS) or do you start to make some changes (and which ones)?
Keith Law
1:39
Nothing you can do now. It's not like we see an active trade market in May every year. You get ready, make sure you're scouting the right orgs, and signal to other teams that you're willing to deal when the time is right.
Dan

Can plate discipline be taught?
Keith Law
1:40
Not really. It can be improved, but whether that's by teaching or by player initiative, no one really knows. We've seen lots of players supposedly "taught" plate discipline who couldn't learn or hold on to the gains.
Joe
1:40
Can the Royals get a top prospect for Hosmer?
Keith Law
1:40
I don't see it.
Taylor
1:40
What are the chances of Taylor Hearn remaining a starter?
Keith Law
1:40
Close to zero.
Concerned Friend

Keith, my buddy is a huge Red Sox fan & even bigger Keith Law fan. He's been telling me that David Price's injury would be worth 10 wins (!) to the Red Sox. Please help me talk some sense into him.
