Hey! I'll wait a few minutes to let the room fill and then we'll get going. Go ahead and hit me with some questions.

If there was one worry a Mariners fan should have, what would it be?
Jeffrey Todd
2:09
There's depth, but the key rotation guys all have questions of various kinds.
Not to say they necessarily should've done anything differently, but it's possible the staff could show some cracks.
Also could be pretty good.
Rob

Anything more about Yankees' Refsnyder?
Jeffrey Todd
2:10
Nah. He's really just not that exciting a player. Perhaps he'll get a chance at some point to earn semi-regular time in New York or elsewhere, but no particular reason to think he'd command much in trade.
Ace
2:10
Whos the best fit for Derek Norris?
Jeffrey Todd
2:10
I have felt the Rockies ought to add another catcher before, and that's all the more true now.
Thomas
2:10
What are the latest reports on Michael Brantley?
Jeffrey Todd
2:11
Basically, that he and the team have done everything possible and been as cautious as you can be. So there's not much to be done but let him go back out there when ready and hope for the best.
11th inning
2:11
Do you like the 11th inning rule in the WBC?
Jeffrey Todd
2:11
It's perhaps understandable in the WBC, but generally, heck no.
Ace
2:12
Wheres the most likely landing spot for Quintana?
Jeffrey Todd
2:12
I'd take Houston in the pool. But still wide open, esp since it could happen in the next two weeks or at mid-season or beyond.
Chutzpah
2:13
Can the Tigers get much if they have to move Moya?
Jeffrey Todd
2:13
Not really.
There are always former prospect-y types who are getting squeezed out of rosters late in camp b/c of options. Just like 40-man crunch before the Rule 5 draft.
Anon
2:14
Could the Nationals trade Ryan Zimmerman?
Jeffrey Todd
2:14
Realistically, no.
Doesn't make sense for them to do that anyway.
Mike
2:14
Is there any outside options for the dbacks if Tomas is out for an extended period of time?
Jeffrey Todd
2:15
Nobody in particular, but it would make sense for them to add a right-handed-hitting OF. Even if it's just for a few weeks, no reason they can't find someone for a minimal commitment.
Hahn
2:16
Is Giolito's velocity (91-93) cause for concern?
Jeffrey Todd
2:16
That's about where he was in the majors, so I guess it's what they ought to have expected. Obviously the arm strength is there to get him turned around and they were willing to take the risks.
Mike P
2:16
Am I really to believe Holland is closing for Rockies?????
Jeffrey Todd
2:17
Guess I would've expected Ottavino, who is a stud. But typically the beat writers have the best sense of these sorts of things.
Chief Beef
2:17
Giants have a plethora of vets fighting for two bench spots - any speculation as to who makes the cut?
Jeffrey Todd
2:18
Man, they really do. I'll guess Hwang and dark horse Morse. Honestly that's mostly just because I want to watch those two players the most, though.
Snitker
2:18
Now that Micah Johnson is going to be out with a fractured wrist, will the Braves pony up the $$ it'll take to get Angel Pagan?
Jeffrey Todd
2:19
Shouldn't really be a direct connection there, b/c Johnson wasn't likely to have an opening day slot and Pagan is more the player they seem to want to have in that 4th OF role.
But they do seem to be the most active pursuer of Pagan.
Luc
2:19
Do you think the Astros are keeping Reed or Moran in camp to showcase them for a trade?
Jeffrey Todd
2:19
Don't see why those guys wouldn't still be in MLB camp at this stage regardless.
2:20
But both are probably available if the 'Stros decide to push for a starter.
David Price
2:20
Will I pitch this season? And if so, when?
Jeffrey Todd
2:21
No reason to think he won't. Early May, perhaps?
Boch
2:21
Is Parker my left fielder? If not, what's the best alternative?
Jeffrey Todd
2:21
Seems headed in that direction.
Dietrich

Prado with Hamstring Issues now.....Am I The Starting 3B?
