With a youth movement underway are my Oakland Athletics a winning team in 17' or under 500?
Jeffrey Todd
2:39
I'll take the under, though who knows what the winter will bring.

Regardless of the teams results, do you believe that this will be John Gibbons last season with the Blue Jays? Seems like Shapiro is doing a complete overhaul
Jeffrey Todd
2:39
Seemed to be set up for that with his contract situation. But if they win the east and go deep, perhaps things could change.
Cubs Talk
2:40
I think I will take a knee to protest these questions !
Jeffrey Todd
2:40
That is your right.
Bob

Brendan Moss- QO and does he accept ?
Jeffrey Todd
2:40
No for me.
LT

Can Jim Johnson get a multi year deal this offseason?
Jeffrey Todd
2:41
Yes.
Mike

At the same time Daniel Murphy may not have had the same output in NY as he has in Wash.
Jeffrey Todd
2:41
Of course. It's all hypothetical.
Matt M
2:41
Should the Phillies look to sell high on Cam Rupp and Hector Neris because of their lack of track record?
Jeffrey Todd
2:41
Not really. Other teams are aware of their past and can scout them just the same.
Jays Fan
2:42
What do you make of the hiring of Ben Cherington?
Jeffrey Todd
2:42
Seems like the kind of personality that won't have trouble with not being the #1 guy, and he's obviously a good talent evaluator. Seems like a big win.
Connor
2:43
Would you give Saunders a QO?
Jeffrey Todd
2:44
Only if you're okay with the risk he'd accept. Jays have a large enough budget and have the need for an OF to take that risk -- much like the Astros did last year with Rasmus. But it's a tough call for the team and for him, if it's given.
Robert

I had my questions about the Matt Kemp trade. Just seeing the impact he has had on this line-up has been amazing for the Braves. Are you shock by how much he has transform this line-up?
Jeffrey Todd
2:45
I don't really ascribe to the idea that he has transformed the lineup. Thought it was a fine, pretty limited risk to take that made some sense for them.
Sighern

Heyman predicted a 4yr 100million deal for Cespedes....that seems low?
Jeffrey Todd
2:45
When did he predict that? Yes, that sounds low.
JustAsking
2:46
Do the mets trade d'arnaud and sign one of those useful catchers you mentioned?
Jeffrey Todd
2:46
Hmm well that depends upon their internal assessment of him. From my perspective, I'd rather add a sturdy veteran to go with him.
Dan Duquette
2:47
Zach britton sinker ball is the best pitch in baseball? True or false
Jeffrey Todd
2:47
Hard to argue. He is pure filth.
Cindy
2:47
Martin Prado a QO?
Jeffrey Todd
2:48
Lean no.
Squintz

Cubs will have Arrieta, Lackey, and Hammel out of contract after next year with few reinforcements from the minors. Free Agency for pitchers looks...bad. What about a Schwarber + for Quintana and a Soler + for a guy like Odorizzi for the Cubs with them then buying another bat in free agency? A Cespedes-Almora-Heyward outfield with those 2 pitchers keeps the team relatively young and lengthens the window to compete.
Jeffrey Todd
2:48
I'll simply this rather than getting in the weeds ... wouldn't be surprising at all to see Cubs looking to trade for a starter with some control this winter.
AGC

biggest contract this offseason?
Jeffrey Todd
2:49
Yo
Bob
2:49
Are TLR and Dave Stewart still in Arizona this time next year?
Jeffrey Todd
2:49
I'll guess no.
Matt Holliday
2:50
Should the Cardinals let me walk, QO or try and sign me to a 2 year deal?
Jeffrey Todd
2:50
Work out a cheaper deal. Maybe something with a rolling vesting clause like the Utley/Ortiz contracts.
LT
2:51
Biggest non-Yo contract this offseason?
Jeffrey Todd
2:51
I'll guess Edwin.
OHHH so there were new juicy details on the Padres medical situation. Hadn't seen that.
I take back what I said above. No opinion, haven't read up on it yet.
