Terribly conceived signing from the start.
Kingdome

What moves do you see the M's doing this winter? Corner outfielder? Shortstop?
Jeffrey Todd
3:11
Yeah I think they'll look in both areas.
Jerry Dipoto
3:11
What's the answer to my shortstop problem?
Jeffrey Todd
3:11
Well, since you asked personally, I'll add more. Cozart still makes sense to me. FA market pretty weak.
3:12
Shorter commitment seems like the right approach there. I don't think they want to just ditch Marte altogether.

Miller High Life is the GOAT.... that's all I wanted to say
Jeffrey Todd
3:12
You said enough.
Bud Black

Why won't you talk about me and who I manage next year?
Jeffrey Todd
3:13
Because I have no clue and it doesn't really matter all that much. Right now there's just two teams needing managers, and only one is even looking at the moment.
Bobby Evans

We have 6 free agents whose 2016 salaries combined to total about $50 mil.
Jeffrey Todd
3:13
Oh. Well I guess I'm surprised it adds up that much. Regardless, point stands!
Stubby
3:14
Do you think Rivera of the Brewers could be a full time shortstop?
Jeffrey Todd
3:14
That's a very high standard, especially in this day and age.
Chris
3:14
Do Shapiro and Atkins convince Rogers to let them increase payroll over $140mil?
Jeffrey Todd
3:14
Probably not.
Mike Matheny
3:14
Will I have a new first baseman as well as a new center fielder next year?
Jeffrey Todd
3:14
I'd expect a platoonish situation.
At first, that is.
Lets Go Oakland
3:14
Danny Valencia to KC for Jarrod Dyson?
Jeffrey Todd
3:15
OAK has basically signaled Valencia is a NT guy or basically freely available. The clubhouse stuff is apparently having a real impact.
So I don't think they need to part with Dyson to get him.
They'd be a fun platoon pairing, anyhow.
Jeff Bridich
3:15
Do you see the rockies trading Tyler Chatwood? He will be a free agent after next season and led the league in road ERA. If so, who would be possible candidates since it is an extremely thin SP free agent class?
Jeffrey Todd
3:16
He outperformed his peripherals. Think they need him. Hold.
Ben D
3:16
Why the short term contract for snitiker?
Jeffrey Todd

Y'all might have ranked top free agents already and I missed it but who are top 3 starting pitchers this offseason?
Jeffrey Todd
3:17
We have not. But this is pretty clear: Hellickson, Hill, Nova, in some order.
Okay y'all. I'm going to wrap it up here.
Need to get outside on a gorgeous day before retiring inside to watch the ballgame.
3:18
Dang it, really should have taken those tickets : (
Thanks for joining!
