Should I be pushing to get this WBC thing to be an annual or semi-annual thing?
Jeffrey Todd
3:02
I'm not convinced of that. Would be more push back and it might get to feeling just kind of ho-hum rather than sort of special.

How much would Bumgarner's bat contribute to FA earnings? Would he be worth more to an NL club than AL?
Jeffrey Todd
3:02
No material impact.
Billington

Read above Profar has ZERO trade value!
Jeffrey Todd
3:03
That's not true. As I said, not a ton, but it's more than zero.
Matthew

Who's ceiling is higher Urias or Berrios?
Jeffrey Todd
3:04
Urias is filthy.
Huge ceiling. And after their respective 2016 seasons, probably a higher floor than Berrios too.
Matt E

How concerned should the Reds be about Iglesias? Dude can't seem to catch a break. Ugh.
Jeffrey Todd
3:05
If it does turn out he's really hurt, that would suck. But hey, rebuilding teams can weather that sort of thing.
3:06
Couple more here and I'm gonna head out, so give me your last and final!

Ryu has pitched pretty good so far, any chance he is traded???
Jeffrey Todd
3:06
Really haven't seen or heard details, but it's hard to imagine him being dealt at this stage.
Barry
3:07
Happ is going need a place to play. Do you see him as trade bait or taking schwarbers spot when he is traded next offseason ?
Jeffrey Todd
3:07
Cubs don't have problems finding places for guys to play. And they aren't likely to have perfect health/performance all over the diamond.
Colon
3:07
no bartolo questions answered. SAD!!
Jeffrey Todd
3:08
The answer is always yes he can.
David Wright

Do I provide ANY value this season?
Jeffrey Todd
3:08
Guessing no.
Joe
3:08
Do you see the braves as a player for Ryan Howard?
Jeffrey Todd
3:08
That's a really weird fit. Nope.
Billington

*** NEED ANSWERED *** Roast Beef sandwich or Ham sandwich for lunch? Seriously!
Jeffrey Todd
3:08
Roast beef how is this even a question?
Sammy

Most underrated rotation in baseball?
Jeffrey Todd
3:09
Dodgers. Not that people don't recognize, but ... how many orgs have that kind of top of the staff (none) and that much credible depth?
JM
3:09
Also, "last and final" seems redundant.
Jeffrey Todd
3:10
I meant best and final. Struggling today.
Bob
3:10
Who is the most underrated closer in Baseball?
Jeffrey Todd
3:10
Whoever the Nats pick?!
3:11
No. I honestly think the best answer to this is to point to some of those filthy setup guys who dont quite get recognized. Betances, to some extent, but also guys like Nate Jones.
Anyhow ... I'm going to get on outta here.
3:12
Thanks for stopping by! Steve'll be back next Tuesday, despair not.
