Team fire sale
4:14
Do you think Moreno would approve of a getting a lot of young talent and trading away pretty much anyone not named Trout so my beloved Angels might actually have a good team in 1 to 2 years?
Jeffrey Todd

Doesn't really matter, b/c they don't have many appealing assets beyond Trout. I mean, Calhoun and some of the pitchers, sure, but how are the Angels going to just completely bow out of contention with Trout in his mid-prime?

Are you playing Pokemon go?

What the hell is that?
(I have heard of the craze, but I really actually don't know what it is.)
Confused

Why are you even answering questions about Galvis and C Hernandez...... Who cares?
Jeffrey Todd
4:16
The guy who's leaving the chat b/c all I'm talking about is the Cubs would seem one candidate.

Do you think Hector Rondon would accept and/or excel in a setup role?
Jeffrey Todd
4:16
Yes and yes.

No player should be untouchable. You obviously are hesitant to trade some more than others. But any player can be had for what you think is the right fit. That is something Jon Daniels said. I agree. I find it silly when someone says x player is not going anywhere. Please put that to rest
Jeffrey Todd

If I say it, it's not because I mean the player is completely untouchable. It's because I don't see a realistic scenario coming together.

Alex Bregman is playing left field for Triple-A Fresno again tonight, his second straight start there.

Get my question ?
Jeffrey Todd

I mean there are like a thousand people in here, so not going to get to them all.

A Game that Steven Adam create.

This makes sense.
@MLBBruceLevine
Rick Hahn- We will not add any short term solutions . We are open to new directions if things pop up

Any news on hunter pence rehab?
Jeffrey Todd
4:19
Seems he's pretty close. Evans suggested that they don't have interest in adding an OF for that very reason.

Will I get traded even with my expensive vesting option?
Jeffrey Todd
4:20
No, I don't think so. That is a HUGE amount of money to sort out.

Tell the truth, how insufferable are "can my team get player x for prospect y?" questions?
Jeffrey Todd
4:21
Well, what's hard is there are so many of them that I can't get to the questions I want to answer.

Think the Royals become sellers in a week? If so, who do they move?
Jeffrey Todd
4:21
GMDM just said he isn't interested in selling. May not be plunking down top assets to buy, though, either.

I'm one of the best hitters in the league with average defense. I would be a tremendous help to playoff-contending teams and teams would give up a good Prospect or two to get me.
Jeffrey Todd
4:23
The offensive production is highly dependent upon batting average, and it may not really be sustainable. Otherwise, the pop/OBP isn't great. Average D? Not sure about that.
Very useful player, but not one that's going to really motivate people.

Think there will be any blockbuster trades at the deadline?
Jeffrey Todd

Of course!
Guys and gals, we are starting to run out of questions that are really worth trying to answer in a chat.
I'm going to pull the plug here.
Thanks so much -- busiest chat I've yet done! I'm sure next week will be even bigger.
