If it's Monday night, it's baseball discussion time. We'll get going soon...
Noah

Reports saying Robinson Chirinos to Yankees is a possibility. As a Yankee fan, should I be excited?
Connor Byrne
6:02
I haven't seen these reports, but ... kind of? Chirinos is better than Romine, and when he catches, NYY could plug Sanchez in at DH and have a nice offensive combo.
Karl
6:02
Could the Twins be players for Rendon?
Connor Byrne
6:03
They probably have the $ to be in the bidding, but I'll be beyond stunned if he signs w/ them, Seems like Donaldson would be a lot more realistic, as far as pie-in-the-sky third basemen go.
Ryan
6:03
What do you think Drew Pomeranz will get this offseason? Will he be getting a deal close to what Will Smith got ?
Connor Byrne
6:04
We've got him at 2/16, though we did seriously discuss deals upward of $20MM over 3 years. Can't see him coming close to the Smith contract.
Josh Donaldson
6:04
Entering Age 34 season. I think multiple teams will go 3 Yrs north of $20M AAV. Do you think a team will go to 4 Yrs? Maybe Rangers?
Connor Byrne
6:05
Four's a lot to ask in his case. We have him at a very high-AAV three (25MM per)
JNogle
6:05
What could the Dodgers get in a trade for Pollock? Is he tradeable/worth trading?
Connor Byrne
6:05
Probably not very much. I don't see him getting dealt at this point.
Braves Fan Skip
6:06
I just don’t see them giving up another draft pick bc of our sanctions. What’s your thoughts
Connor Byrne
6:06
It's a valid point ("sanctions" coming from the previous front office's violations). I'll believe it when I see it, too, though the Braves are supposedly big Bumgarner fans. He'd cost a pick to sign as a QO recipient.
Thad Lavine
6:07
should we move sano to first and pursue a 3B?
Connor Byrne
6:07
(Thad Levine = Twins GM) - I like the idea
Theo
6:07
My mini rebuild doesnt mean we cant contend for the central next year.
Connor Byrne
6:08
(Cubs pres Theo Epstein) - They're still an immensely talented team, so I agree, though it depends on how the offseason goes. Are any of their stars getting dealt, for instance?
Jeremy Hellickson
6:08
Am I gonna get signed?
Connor Byrne
6:08
Someone will give you a minor league deal.
Derek Jeter
6:09
Which free agents do you think we will most likely sign?
Connor Byrne
6:09
Well, Marlins co-owner Mr. November, you're supposedly interested in Castellanos and Ozuna. I think either would be a plausible fit for a team that has spending room and wants to draw in more fans.
JNogle
6:10
Is there any truth to Corey Seager trade rumors? Feel like it's jumping the gun a little to give up on him already
Connor Byrne
6:11
I mean, maybe - MAYBE - if it's part of a Lindor deal. Otherwise, I can't see it. Seager's still extremely valuable. Dodgers would be fine keeping him, I'm sure.
(Or if they acquire Lindor in a separate package and flip Seager for help elsewhere)
Matt Klentak
6:11
Do the Phillies have enough to trade for Robbie Ray or Matt Boyd without including Bohm/Howard?
Connor Byrne
6:11
Ray, yes. Boyd, we'll see. Tigers have asked for an arm and a leg for him thus far.
Mike Rizzo
6:12
Should we try and bring Gomes back, or go after Grandal?
Connor Byrne
6:13
Another year of Suzuki and Gomes wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, though I guess I could see them as a dark horse for Grandal if Stras and/or Rendon walk. They've got tons of spending room at the moment.
Tyler
6:13
Pirates retool or rebuild?
Connor Byrne
6:13
Time to rebuild
Eppler
6:13
Could I land Contreras without trading Adell?
Connor Byrne
6:13
Yes, Angels GM Billy Eppler. Contreras wouldn't bring back Adell, and you're not trading him anyway.
JNogle
6:14
Your opinions on where Cole, Strasburg and Rendon sign?
Connor Byrne
6:14
Angels, Nationals, Nationals
Braves in 2020
6:14
Does a package of Camargo, Bryce Wilson
and Austin Riley bring back Kris Bryant?
Connor Byrne
6:14
Definitely not
Baseball Pickers
6:15
How many Top 50 free agents do the White Sox sign this offseason?
Connor Byrne
6:15
2-3? We like them a lot for Castellanos
Jeets
6:16
Why do you hate on the Marlins so much? Last weeks chat you demolished them in answering ppl questions on them. I think they will surprise this coming season and spend some money
