Not really. Lots of smart people running orgs.

I saw a rumor that the Braves could offer Adonis Garcia and a prospect for Todd Frazier. Any truth to this?
Jeffrey Todd
3:24
I mean, who's the prospect? Garcia has minimal value.
3:25
But the Braves could look at Frazier, I guess, if he could be had at a really light price.

What about the Indians getting a LF instead of a 1b in case Brantley has to DH..
Jeffrey Todd
3:25
I think they should prepare in case Brantley isn't really fully available. That's why I like the idea of multiple, flexible pieces.

Travis Wood and Colby Rasmus to the Phillies?
Jeffrey Todd
3:25
Plausible.

Cozart to the Padres, better than paying through the nose for Profar?
Jeffrey Todd
3:26
Neither should be hugely expensive -- Cozart only one year of control, Profar still laden with risk. Not sure Reds will sell low enough on Cozart to do that.
Wow. nice deal!

Source: Odubel Herrera’s 5-year contract guarantees him $30.5 million. Options for 2022 and 2023, too. Delays his FA by at least one year.

Don't forget Rod in your prayers today...

Indeed.

I see Parra as a great bounce-back candidate (assuming he gets abs). What are your thoughts?
Jeffrey Todd
3:29
Decent bet to return to being a solid player, but I wouldn't expect the 130 OPS+ he ran up in the first half of 2015.

I'm calling it now pablo Sandoval will be a MVP candidate this year. Write it down.

Just a sec, let me grab a pad of paper.

I don't have a question today. Just wanted to let you guys know, that you have the best baseball site out there. You, Steve, and Jason do a great job with these chats. Keep up the excellent work and I hope you and the whole staff have wonderful holiday seasons. Go Cubs!!
Jeffrey Todd

Appreciate it!

Where do you see Tyson Ross ending up?
Jeffrey Todd

Toss up at this point. Obv he'll consider $$$, opportunity.

Any tips on getting questions answered? I just want to see my name on the board. Makes me feel good.

Do I get any bullpen help?
Jeffrey Todd
3:31
No reason he won't. Lots of options out there. Don't see why they can't land multiple guys on short-term deals.
3:32
Important to remember that at some point, veterans who don't land on contenders in the first round of signings will prefer opportunity to the chance to play a minimal role on a winning team. CIN can offer up late-inning roles to better pitchers, or guaranteed deals to lesser guys who'd settle for MiLB pacts elsewhere.

Worse contract Werth-Nationals or Pujols-Angels
Jeffrey Todd
3:33
Easily Pujols. Werth has been about as valuable (in my memory, at least) at half the cost.
Michael Saunders

Do you think I can get more than 3/36?
Jeffrey Todd
3:34
Never really did, especially don't at this point.

CUBS ARE WORLD SERIES CHAMPS 2017. NO TEAM IS EVEN CLOSE TO AS GOOD AS US
Jeffrey Todd
3:34
Since this guy felt the need to say this 57 times ...
let's see how the pitching holds up!
3:35
But on paper, yeah, still the best in baseball. But they're still playing baseball, so who knows?
