I'm a fan. They did a great job of timing the market on some veterans and have found some serious hidden gems.
Okay ... man.
TJ House had a scary moment. Struck by a liner and it seems serious. Thankfully he was able to give the thumbs up on his way to an ambulance.

Line drives in the wrong place (stands/pitching mound) are just the worst part of baseball. Ugh.
Joey Bats

Thoughts on how Bautista will fair this year. I think he's got a huge chip on his shoulder and will have a monster year. If healthy I wouldn't be surprised to see 35-40HR

Fact that he maintained his plate discipline is a good indicator. And it's not like he totally lacked power. I think he'll prove to be a great investment at 1/17.5.

Why are picks (excluding competetive balance and international pool slots) untradable?
Jeffrey Todd
3:09
Them's the rules. I guess in theory it is a competitive balance type of thing, though I don't know the full history. For me, there's enough parity in modern front offices to trust them to make their own decisions ... I'd be in favor of making picks tradeable.
Okay couple more and I gotta run ...

I know you guys have mentioned difficulty in announcing chat cancellations / reschedulings, but it would be nice so we didnt look forward to it and show up at the time and have no clue what happened. I ended up here today totally by chance. And trust me I do appreciate the chats and acknowledge they are free!

I will discuss this with our crew and see if we can come up with a way to do it.
I know it sucks, I'm truly sorry. There will be times when it's unavoidable, but we really should try to give notice in some way.

Any chance of seeing the DH in the NL anytime soon?
Jeffrey Todd

Hope not!

Why have we not heard more of Yoshitomo Tsutsugoh? His 2016 stat line in Japan was incredible. He's young and plays multiple positions.
Jeffrey Todd

Not familiar but I'll check him out. Remember that the posting fee cap ($20MM) combined with the international spending rules makes it hard for top-flight Japanese talent to make it over before their (lengthy) club control nears its end. Wish that would change.

How much does the WBC mess with the chemistry of a team/line up/pitching staff? I know they all get the (roughly) same reps, but does not playing with the team have any affect?
Jeffrey Todd
3:13
Don't see why it would matter all that much.

showing up at x time on the dot it isnt the problem, but sometimes you are late, so we hang around for 20-30 minutes..would be good to know if chat is cancelled or you just delayed so we should hang...and yes, thanks for free chatting! :)

Good point.
Pedro Alvarez

Any word on me Pedro Alvarez
Jeffrey Todd

No word on you either, Pedro. Still guessing he gets a major league deal though.
Okay folks, I'm going to wrap it up here. Thanks as always, apologies again ... have a great week!
