I've been writing about baseball quite a lot recently ... cool if we just talk about something else today?
2:10
Actually scratch that, just checked the news and .... ugh, no. Lay some baseball questions on me and we'll get rolling shortly.
Hey
2:10
Missed you Jeff.
Jeffrey Todd
2:10
Missed y'all too.
Connor Newcomb

What would it take for the Orioles to get Rich Hill, Pomeranz, or Teheran?
Jeffrey Todd
2:11
All three are very different assets.
DOMBROWSKI
2:11
I'm looking to get both Reddick and Hill from Oakland. What do I gotta give up?
Jeffrey Todd
2:12
Arguably the top two pure rental players on the market ... hmmm ... the last big combo deal of that kind (Samardzija/Hammel) was not cheap.
White Sox Front Office
2:12
Should we trade for Carlos Gonzalez?
Jeffrey Todd
2:12
I think they need a dramatic stroke. Not sure if CarGo is the move, but it's going to take something special to emerge in that division.
Aaron Sanchez
2:13
Will I stay in the rotation?
Jeffrey Todd
2:13
No.
Nate
2:13
Well, the other option is politics...
Jeffrey Todd
2:13
Gross!
Chris
2:13
Do you think Dipoto will trade for Upton Jr
Jeffrey Todd
2:13
Not sure that's really his kinda player.
Jason
2:14
Jay Bruce....What kind of return will he bring?
Jeffrey Todd
2:14
I've come around on the idea that he's pretty danged valuable. Longer the bat keeps producing, the more convinced you are that he's back. And some people think that the defensive metrics are misleading on him - plus he used to grade really well, which is weird.
CL5252
2:15
Can Rangers offer a package centered around Profar and get Sonny Gray?
Jeffrey Todd
2:15
Don't know that he's enough of a centerpiece - impressive, obviously, right now. But the lack of control (he was racking up service time while on DL) and long-term shoulder questions are a deterrent.
Alps
2:16
If Ervin Santana gets traded do you see Berrios getting the. Call up
Jeffrey Todd
2:16
Sure, but he could pretty much come up at any point regardless.
Gogerty
2:16
Do you think Ramos would go for a 3 year $30M contract?
Jeffrey Todd
2:17
Way light. I mean, maaaaybe in an extension scenario if the Nats go for him, like, tomorrow. But barring a disaster of a second half, he'll get much more. I'm in the 4/64 range at the moment, assuming he regresses but still plays well.
Chris
2:17
At what point do the Reds stop trading and start working on what they have? If anyone does well, they are suppose to be traded? Cozart, Bruce, Duvall
Jeffrey Todd
2:18
Nobody is seriously talking about trading Duvall. The other two are in the 29-30 year range and have limited control. So to buy into those players, you're going to be in a contract that pays for their near-term, late-prime production at the expense of whatever they are still able to do in their mid-thirties. That's not a good bet for this club.

"Silver hammer"
Jeffrey Todd
2:18
Yeah, I had to.
CW
2:19
Any chances the Phillies dip into the FA market this offseason… any logical targets?
Jeffrey Todd
2:19
I think so, yeah. Sooo much $$$ to work with. I don't think it's really worth naming names at this point, but they could certainly target younger, high-end names and/or bounceback types.
A.J. Preller
2:19
Am I going to get fired anytime soon?
Jeffrey Todd
2:20
Ownership just bankrolled AJP's huge international spending spree and big set of draft moves. That's going to get some time to play out before anything happens, IMO.
Jonathan Lucroy
2:20
why am i still a brewer?
Jeffrey Todd
2:20
Need to let demand develop in his case.
Bill
2:20
Will the Pirates do anything?
Jeffrey Todd
2:20
Could be a pure hold, time to go before we have a good feel.
Connor
2:21
Pomeranz is my favorite. Would SD take a guy like Mychal Givens or would they want to dip into the prospect pool?
Jeffrey Todd
2:21
I don't know that Givens is a centerpiece. You're talking, what, 5.5 years of a reliever for 2.5 of a starter who has some upside? Not seeing it.
Justin
2:22
Chances that the Orioles trade Trumbo for a SP?
Jeffrey Todd
2:22
Not good.
