Markakis gone by tomorrow?
Jeffrey Todd
2:14
I still don't really see the motivation for a buying team to try to work out the $$$.
Orioles
2:14
Better future, Dylan Bundy or Kevin Gausman?
Jeffrey Todd
2:15
Answer better be "both" or the O's could be in some trouble!
Rob
2:15
The team with the best record after 162 games needs a bigger advantage in the playoffs - agree?
Jeffrey Todd
2:16
Eh, I feel like the postseason is just a whole separate thing. I'm in the camp that values regular season more than playoffs.
Not sure what you'd really do that wouldn't just be silly.
Tim Tebow
2:16
I'm awaiting my contract offers
Jeffrey Todd
2:16
Well any team's minor league affiliates will be happy, so he's a pretty easy guy to value from a business perspective.
Matt M
2:17
How much has James Loney helped his contract for next year?
Jeffrey Todd
2:17
With his 83 OPS+? Not too terribly much.
Taylor
2:18
Does Carlos Gomez stick with texas? The bat is cold, but fantastic defense from the 8 hole isnt the worst thing ever.
Jeffrey Todd
2:18
For the rest of the year, sure, but he'll be out looking for playing time this winter. I'm going to be he signs a one-year deal with a team that doesn't look like a clear contender.
Kevin
2:18
Do the Indians get Suzuki by Thursday?
Jeffrey Todd
2:19
Still seems to make sense and I don't see why Minny wouldn't just deal him -- both to save a little cash, get a little something back, and let a veteran go play for a contender.
Jay Bruce
2:20
If the Mets resign Cespedes, I'm getting traded, right?
Jeffrey Todd
2:20
That's a pretty big "if." Anyway, I can only assume they got Bruce under the assumption they'd pick up the option and keep him, regardless of Cespy - which is a whole 'nother level of decision.
2:21
But that .163/.242/.267 batting line in New York ... yikes.
Steve
2:21
I accept the contract cost and length scares off most teams, but if the Yankees agreed to eat as much cash as possible, would there be any takers for Jacoby Ellsbury?
Jeffrey Todd
2:22
If the Yankees just made him a league-minimum player, to make it an extreme hypothetical? Sure, teams pay good money for solid, CF-capable fourth outfielders.
Ryan K
2:22
If Bautista gets a QO, does he accept?
Jeffrey Todd
2:22
I think not.
Gary H. Pornswinslow
2:23
Who's more likely to get signed to an extension? Dexter Fowler or Aroldis Chapman?
Jeffrey Todd
2:23
Neither, really. So I guess Dex just because he has a little more market risk.
Ortegananda
2:24
why bother?..you answer to many question that have NOTHING to do with Baseball and ignore real questions
Jeffrey Todd
2:24
Oh.
Cody
2:24
With the emergence of David Dahl, do you think makes next year's outfield Dahl/Blackmon/Cargo with Parra as the 4th outfielder, or do you think it pushes one of those guys out so someone like Tapia or possibly a Free Agent to step in?
Jeffrey Todd
2:24
That's awfully left-handed. Realize they had the same thing happening this year, but ...
2:25
I don't know why they'd run that group out there. I also don't get this "Parra/CarGo to 1B" thing. As the Reynolds signing kind of shows, they should be able to get every year's Pedro Alvarez to come play first for a relative pittance.

McCann to Braves by Thursday ?
Jeffrey Todd
2:26
Sounds unlikely. No rush.
Kill Will
2:26
Thoughts on Willy Wonka?
Jeffrey Todd
2:26
Original movie is amazing.
SORRY back to baseball.
Yasiel Puig
2:26
With Maybin injured again, wouldn't I be worth a look for the Tigers? Or do they really think that a Tyler Collins/Andrew Romine platoon is going to get them to the promised land?
Jeffrey Todd
2:27
I don't think anybody is looking at Puig for a boost down the stretch. Not b/c he couldn't be that, but b/c it is a seriously complicated transaction to work out.
Guest
2:27
Will David robertson be moved you think ?
Jeffrey Todd
2:27
I still think he's a plausible trade piece, yeah. All it takes is a team saying "we need a legit pen arm."
Tim Tebow? Really?
2:28
What kind of contract do you expect Tebow to receive?
Jeffrey Todd
2:28
de minimus minor league deal
