Nah. But he could be a good target for ATL - makes sense, you get a solid enough guy who has a bit of buy-low upside.
Texas Rangers Oil Man

I think you're wrong about Andrus- he has at least done better this year than in the past and is an incredible clubhouse presence.
Jeffrey Todd
2:59
I mean, he is a big league caliber player, but he's not an optimal everyday guy for a contender. And he's being paid like a perennial All-Star.

If you're starting a team do you want Machado or Harper?
Jeffrey Todd
3:00
As of this exact moment in time ...
I'll take Machado.

Wait, why couldn't you buy beer in the grocery stores in CO? That's odd.
Jeffrey Todd
3:01
Lots of states have oddball ABC laws. They did have beer but it was only 3.5% or whatever it is. Almost got tricked once!
Panda Panda Panda

Thoughts on me slimming down? down 22 pounds up 2.2 WAR?
Jeffrey Todd
3:02
Are we already starting up the Panda waistline watch?
I hope he is healthy in all regards and can return to being a productive big leaguer, but it's hard to know what to expect.
Bill Lyons

Wieters or McCann? The Braves can't have both!!
Jeffrey Todd
3:02
Right, so they'll explore both and take the best opportunity.
3:04
Okay I'm going to be winding down here shortly ... get your best and final questions in!
JustAsking
3:04
Hmmm Panda healthy....David Wright not......what are the odds of a trade ?
Jeffrey Todd
3:05
How much money do you realistically see the Mets taking on to add Sandoval? He's not much of a trade candidate until he has shown something during a big league season.
Tom
3:05
With Harvey's 2nd arm surgery does that make it more likely for the Mets to keep him on the cheap?
Jeffrey Todd
3:06
On the cheap? He'll earn what he earns in arbitration. Not going to get a huge raise, so his price will stay pretty darn low.
But I don't see an extension.
Matt
3:06
Thoughts on the Cardinals and Matt Holliday's option for next year?
Jeffrey Todd
3:06
I lean no. Could probably cut him loose and sign him for less. Or just sort that out beforehand.
KC_Fan

The Royals make it to the Playoffs this season? Do you see that happening??
Jeffrey Todd
3:07
Nope. But still possible.
Whoa.
We talked Derrick Hall before. Gammo has a smoking hot take.
@pgammo
Diamondbacks, CEO Derrick Hall near long-term deal azc.cc/2bWKgft via @azcentral. 12 years, 5 managers, 5 GMs, but good at blame
Matt E

Odds Raisel Iglesias can handle being a full time starter, or is he bound for the bullpen?
Jeffrey Todd
3:08
I assume they want him to be a starter pretty badly, so if they end up putting him in the pen next year it will be based on a clear-headed assessment.

Are the young Brave's pitchers a bust? Wisler, Folty, Jenkins, Whalen, Blair and Gant all struggle mightily
Jeffrey Todd
3:08
Since you asked this 47 times, fine, I'll answer.
I have no idea, way too soon to know.
Brian
3:09
do the yankees trade for a starter in offseason?
Jeffrey Todd
3:09
Seems quite plausible.
Aaron

Terry Collins will be on Baseball Tonight or MLB Live next April, right? Poor fella is snakebit this year.
Jeffrey Todd
3:10
If they don't make the playoffs he is probably going to be politely nudged out the door.
Gary H. Pornswinslow
3:11
Any chance Chapman stays with Chicago? Or is he truly a pure rental?
Jeffrey Todd
3:11
Sure, they could re-sign him. Have the dollars and may decide they're best spent on him.
