Will The Rockies Make The Postseason?
Jeffrey Todd
2:45
I was leaning against that already; injuries have me feeling it's fairly unlikely. Not to say it's not possible, but man, they really need some guys to step up in the rotation. And they have to climb over at least a couple pretty danged solid teams.
Eric
2:46
Follow up to the Uriah question: why send him to extended spring training as opposed to a triple A?
Jeffrey Todd
2:46
Point is for him not to be pitching.
Er, not pitching a lot ... not burning up innings.
Justino
2:47
Neck issues are a huge thing. If Kershaw is anything shy of 100% healthy all season, I would dare to suggest the Dodgers would have major rotation issues, mediocre depth or not.
Jeffrey Todd
2:47
Take the best pitcher out of any other rotation and reassess how you feel.
2:48
In Kershaw's case, he's by far the best pitcher in the game, so I'm willing to take the probabilities and take that staff.
Jonathan Papelbon
2:49
Have you heard anything about me? Will I latch on with a team soon or have to wait until later on?
Jeffrey Todd
2:49
No word. Guessing done. But these days, I guess you never know when guys will come out of the woodwork.

You really think Lucroy is waiting to see how much Molina gets?
Jeffrey Todd
2:50
No, I don't. Lucroy is the top pending FA catcher.
Ole perfesser
2:52
Does Refsnyder get traded or sent down?
Jeffrey Todd
2:53
Not clear at this point, but I really wouldn't get too wrapped up in it either way. He has never seemed to be a particularly special prospect.
Go Mariners
2:54
Do the M's need to add a lefty bench bat in case Valencia struggles or do they just go with Motter?
Jeffrey Todd
2:55
I mean, I would be pretty surprised if they legitimately viewed Motter as more than a true utility guy. Don't see why they wouldn't be interested in adding some pop from the left side, even if it's not a true first baseman. I guess if it let them carry the extra OF or RP it'd make some more sense, but that's a weak bat to spend any kind of time at first base.
Saskatchewan Pete

Should the Jays be worried about Osuna flaming out? What happens (if) then?
Jeffrey Todd
2:56
No more than any other young, high-powered reliever. It's not like you can usually line up true replacements for your best players.
Henry
2:57
Trade Tanaka for a king's ransom and try to resign a la Chapman? (Would you do)
Jeffrey Todd
2:57
Lots of time to see if that proves reasonable.
Brewer Catch
2:58
Who ends up with the most ABs at catcher?
Jeffrey Todd
2:59
Whoever it is, it'll be a plurality. Expect Pina/Bandy/Susac all to get 200+.
Padre Circus
2:59
Christian Bethancourt: Your prediction on number of ABs...and innings pitched?
Jeffrey Todd
2:59
27 and 10 before a DFA?
That might be high. Will be fun to see.

Taylor or Difo for the last bench spot?
Jeffrey Todd
3:01
Makes sense to me to have Taylor to push Eaton to a corner at times. And Drew can already handle all the IF spots. Plus perhaps there's more justification for prioritizing Difo's development rather than giving him a bench role.
Mylanta Position
3:01
Is Adonis Garcia's position really in jeopardy?
Jeffrey Todd
3:01
Don't see an immediate threat but I expect ATL will be willing to push him to the bench or off the roster as soon as they find a bargain on a veteran or decide they want to give some young player a shot.
JT
3:03
The big law school softball tournament at UVA is coming up (April 7-9), any tips?
Jeffrey Todd
3:03
Ha, I prefer playing baseball to softball, myself. But go find a Gusburger on the Corner at some point late at night. Double Gus with cheese.
JP
3:03
DO you think Chris Coghlan will sign with another big league team?
Jeffrey Todd
3:04
Certainly will join another org, but will he get a MLB roster spot? Hard to say. Certainly possible but I'd guess he doesn't.

Bryce Harper is wearing a first baseman's glove and taking ground balls at first.

Leo

Not sure why i became an attorney... any jobs recommendations to save me from this boring profession?
Jeffrey Todd
3:05
Not really, but maybe try to get out ahead of it rather than waiting for the frustration to build, as I did.
Too late, perhaps? Good luck.
3:06
Couple more (about baseball) and I gotta run.
TwinsFan
3:06
What is the logic behind sending Chagaois (sp?) and Berrios down. The future should be now, right?
