I still have a shelf full of '15 Padres I haven't even touched.
2:30
Supposedly it gets better with age
Doug

If Ross comes back and makes a few starts in Sept, do Padres trade him this offseason or wait until the deadline?
Jeffrey Todd
2:30
Probably wait, but maybe he shows well and is healthy in the spring and gets dealt late in camp?

What do you think WIlson Ramos gets on FA mkt? Mark Trumbo?
Jeffrey Todd
2:31
I mean, I'm going to make this up, so don't hold me to it, but .... Ramos 5/70, Trumbo 4/64

Any rumors surrounding Mark Buehrle?
Jeffrey Todd
2:33
I hear he grabbed coffee after dropping his kids off at school yesterday and then did some long-delayed yardwork.
Arcia DFA for Francoeur

How can Coco Crisp complain about a lack of playing time when he is Batting a paltry .235? What team would want an aging and declining player's Contract option to vest for $13M the following season?
Jeffrey Todd
2:33
I don't think he has the strongest case.
Barry
2:34
Mets get Puig and Cespedes sticks around to mentor him?
Jeffrey Todd
2:34
Probably not but that would be fun to watch.
Gavin
2:34
If giants choke and miss out of playoffs, do you see them rebuilding?
Jeffrey Todd
2:34
Like, selling off their best veterans and starting from scratch? No.
coppy
2:34
I have asked good chat questions about the braves and you choose one about turner field?
Jeff Todd is the only person I wouldn't trade for
Jeffrey Todd
2:35
Dude.
I skim. Do the best I can.
Matt E
2:35
I know you probably don't know, but do you have any idea if HR and PFR will get their own chats going?
Jeffrey Todd
2:35
Don't know but I can suggest it.
Tyler
2:35
Do you think Longoria will be a Ray come opening day?
Jeffrey Todd
2:35
Yeah, probably, but you wonder whether now's the time to deal him.
2:36
Still, they are looking for a stadium deal and it helps to have a homegrown star. And it isn't like they can't hope to contend next year.
Rick M.
2:36
Couldn't the Giants just have gotten Scrabble for far less than they paid for Will Smith? Smith has been awful.
Jeffrey Todd
2:36
Never can tell, but there were signs of trouble with Smith. Obviously the Giants felt he'd be okay. And he may yet - he's not a rental.
Doug
2:37
What is your opinion of the trade between the Nats and A's today? Seems like a great value for Oakland for a LOGGY that isn't pitching great to lefties.
Jeffrey Todd
2:37
The Nats will probably end up re-acquiring Schrock, because that's just how those teams roll.
2:38
But yeah, sure, pulling a pretty legit prospect out of a LOOGY in August is nice.
Nate
2:38
Rockies gonna be buyers this off season?
Jeffrey Todd
2:39
I would expect so.
David Abers
2:39
How does Francoer affect the Marlins? If they get healthy (SP and Stanton) by the end of the year, do they have a playoff run?
Jeffrey Todd
2:40
It's pretty rare the 25th guy on your roster has a huge impact, but he could play a role. They are looking for every edge they can get.
Texas Rangers Oil Man
2:40
Will Roughnd Odor or Profar get traded?
Jeffrey Todd
2:41
Makes sense to have a little overlap in that IF. Andrus just isn't that great, Beltre is old, still haven't settled on 1B/DH for next year.
So I think no.
Grayson
2:41
Can you list out some big non tender canidates?
Jeffrey Todd
2:41
Not here but thanks for the idea for a post!

Ramos *only* 5/70M? He's just 29 and a top 3 catcher. Surprised since you guys always guess high...
Jeffrey Todd
2:42
Well like I said that was off the cuff. He's a big guy who has an injury history, so I was kind of leaning a bit below the Russell Martin range. But he has been fantastic and definitely has a higher price ceiling than 5/70.
