Why don't the nats value pitch framing over slightly better hitting? Seems much more valuable to me
Jeffrey Todd

They talked up Lobaton's framing, so maybe they just like Wieters somewhat more from a scouting perspective? Or maybe Boras got in Lerner's ear. Dunno, let's see what they say when they announce it and see what they end up doing next.

On a scale of 0-100, what would you rate the chances of the Yankees making the post season this year?

Only way Bruce or Profar get moved is b/c of a ST injury right?
Jeffrey Todd
3:10
I mean, I don't see a clear path to a deal at this point, but it's hard to know. Teams may be stating more confidence in their various situations than they really have, and talks could always revive.

Steve ended his last chat saying he would miss this week bc of vaca with gf, and would do a chat on Friday to make up for it
Jeffrey Todd

Well let's hold him to that.

If a player is on the 40 man roster but is assigned to a minor league team, do they receive a major league or minor league salary? Can their contract determine how they are paid?
Jeffrey Todd
3:11
Minor league salary, unless they have a guaranteed MLB deal that doesn't provide a minors split. Say, Kolten Wong last year -- he'd have earned his full salary.

what do you think of my newest strategem of 2 pitchers accounting for 6-7 IP instead of 1?
Jeffrey Todd

Good luck!

Rockies don't need a catcher. At least not Derek Norris. They've got two better ones.
Jeffrey Todd
3:13
I'm not really much of a believe in Wolters. We'll see what they have in Murphy. I suspect most teams would be interested at least in adding depth.

When can we Met fans expect the arrivals of Rosario and Dom Smith?
Jeffrey Todd

Could be expanded roster guys this year.

If you had to guess, which of the 30 teams will go the longest between now and their next playoff appearance?
Jeffrey Todd
3:14
I could see the Marlins missing on their current "window" and then enjoying a long delay since they kinda traded away most of their farm. Though like the White Sox, they'd be able to reload somewhat by trading younger MLB guys.

Derek Norris for Adam Ottavino. Would the Rockies want an additional piece?
Jeffrey Todd
3:15
That's not happening. To be clear again: I wasn't saying Norris was too much for Doolittle. The opposite.
Les Gomez
3:15
If the Mets are really 'all in' like Sandy claims, wouldn't they make a deal for Robertson? They have to believe Familia will miss close to 1/4 the season
Jeffrey Todd
3:15
They have added some solid arms and have Reed. Don't see a huge need to go get a closer right now.
