Where were you last Thursday?
Jeffrey Todd
2:23
I can barely remember. Been driving all over creation and living away from my wife and kids. Life is upside down while trying to find a home. SORRY EVERYONE.
I'll never let you down again : )

Any rumors concerning Padres selling high on Solarte?
Jeffrey Todd
2:24
Haven't heard anything, but from the outside he looks like a solid candidate. I don't think anyone is going to value him at his current production levels, but he'd be a pretty nice bat-first utility player type.

Would Rangers do Miller from NYY for Gallo and Brinson?
Jeffrey Todd
2:25
Not a chance.

Is Huston Street still the Angels closer after the trade deadline?
Jeffrey Todd
2:26
Well he isn't closing for anybody else, I can tell you that. Needs to figure something out. At his current levels, I'll guess he ends up being held.

What does it take for rangers to get Matt Moore?
Jeffrey Todd
2:28
He has just been so inconsistent. And the contract isn't that great going forward - tons of upside, still, but it isn't a super cheap deal. I don't think he gets a premium prospect right now, which is partially why I think Odorizzi is a more likely player to move.
Oof, sorry, my computer or internet is a bit choppy right now.

Who would command a greater return for the Rockies: Blackmon or CarGo?
Jeffrey Todd

Tough one! To the polls ...

Are daniel Hudson and i pitching for the snakes next month.
Jeffrey Todd
2:31
Who knows, man. It is hard to imagine a mid-season reliever extension, but .... it's the DBacks. Neither would have a ton of trade value, but would certainly be nice adds for teams that need arms and like the idea of late-inning experience.
So you guys still prefer CarGo.
I'm not sure.
Blackmon is a CF and way cheaper with an extra year of control.
I might lean his way, esp with CarGo's injury history, but it's close.

If he stays at this pace, what kind of contract do you see Wieters getting? 5/100M?
Jeffrey Todd
2:32
That's high.
Similar type of possible range to Ramos.

Stearns was at a minor league game featuring De Leon. Is there something cooking between the Brewers/Dodgers? See a deal involving those teams before July 31st?
Jeffrey Todd
2:33
Dunno. Certainly plausible those two teams could have some matches.
Daniel
2:33
I think NYY should do a firesale. I would trade Chapman, Gardner, Beltran, McCann, CC, Eovaldi, Pineda and possibly Miller. What do you think?
Jeffrey Todd
2:33
Even if they decided to launch a dramatic rebuild, pulling off that many deals is pretty unlikely.

Any chance Brian Cashman says the hell with it and quits?
Jeffrey Todd
2:34
Seems like a desirable post for those who want to run baseball teams.
Andrew

How much longer can the Cubs afford to wait before they trade for a reliever?
Jeffrey Todd
2:36
One guy in the pen probably isn't going to suddenly jumpstart the whole team. And if you part with a major trade chip for a player you don't really want the most, then you could miss out on a chance to get the best arm that is ultimately available.
Not sure if jotcast is messing with me, but apologies for the slow load times here.

What do you think of how the allstar game gives one league the WS advantage?
Jeffrey Todd

Dumbest idea ever, can't believe it is actually the rule
Brad

You think Derek Norris gets traded this season or in the off-season?
Jeffrey Todd
2:37
Winter probably more likely, but enough teams are dealing with reserve catcher issues that it's possible to imagine a deal.
Jacob Robertson
2:37
How does Arbitration work? At least how many years of control does a player have?
Jeffrey Todd
2:39
This would take a while to answer. But 6 years of control -- which, if managed properly (see, eg, Kris Bryant) can be effectively 7.
