A few years back we heard a Brewer's fan at the Maryvale Park say ,"Mark Reynolds is gonna be bagging groceries by May!" Keep proving him wrong Marky Mark!

Hey I'm all for some Mark Reynolds. He's a fellow UVA guy. I even hyped him for fantasy ball last year. Just ... he's not the Gehrig to Desmond's Pipp, is all.

When you're watching a game from home, is the best way to measure command simply to see if the pitches look like they're going where the catcher has set up
Jeffrey Todd
2:55
In part, yes, though remember that catchers aren't always showing a target exactly where the pitcher wants to put the ball. Typically (watch them put down signs) they are calling in/out only, if at all, then setting a target. Pitcher may have his own ideas to some extent. And the catcher may also be weighing how his setup is being picked up by the batter.
2:56
In some part I think it is a bit results-oriented, because if you observe enough strikeouts and walks and missed pitches in big counts and such, you'll probably get a sense for it.

#Padres No. 2 prospect Anderson Espinoza will start the season on the DL due to forearm tightness. Was meant to start with @Storm_Baseball.

Never like to see that. But as w/Kaprelian, let's wait and see.

Unless, of course, the local mass transit system refuses to stay open an extra hour or so for a playoff game....

Whoops, yeah. I'm a DC area native, that one hurts.
give me your job please

Did/do you ever do any other media work? Radio?
Jeffrey Todd
2:59
No, but this isn't really a typical media job.
Charlie

With Cobb's strong outing last night, does that indicate stronger chance he'll be moved this year?
Jeffrey Todd
3:00
So much yet to observed before we can really assess that. If he pitches well, presumably that benefits the Rays in the W/L column, so maybe they aren't sellers.

Since you're giving out tips, is it wise to start your own sports blog as a springboard into something more?
Jeffrey Todd
3:00
Conceivably. Esp if you have some niche that you really know and are good at, and have some idea how to market it.

3:01
should the Giants start panicking about Melancon?
Jeffrey Todd
3:01
No
I mean, generally, he's a somewhat risky investment and could take something of a Jim Johnson turn if he isn't on top of his game. But surely one outing doesn't say anything.
grumph

Is this going to be a long year for SF bullpen? Is it time to panic??
Jeffrey Todd
3:01
Okay so we need to talk about how you manage stress if you're going to be a baseball fan!
3:02
I like the Giants pen pretty well.
Think it'll be fine.

Favorite derivation of your name? Toddrey Jeff?.. Also, it's 2 am, there's a Mexican joint on your way home.. tacos or burritos? .. or a third thing..
Jeffrey Todd
3:02
I like that. Cannot beat legit tacos. Not the ones with all kinds of fancy jazz, just the straight old school stuff.

He has competition from Lorenzen.

With Vin Scully no longer calling Dodger games, who is the best announcer in your opinion? Or announcers you like to listen to? Maybe a poll question.
Jeffrey Todd
3:03
I'd do a poll but too many guys to list. The best is easy, anyway ... Vin Scully.

But my #2 was always Jon Miller, so I'll take him.

I'm moving for work to Sterling VA area in July, any suggestions where to look for housing?
Jeffrey Todd

Oh boy, my old stomping grounds. Reston Town Center ish? Leesburg? Hit me up on Twitter.
Sorry for the diversions, having trouble finding solid ball questions here!
N/A

Plausible that Kang never plays in MLB again?
Jeffrey Todd
3:06
I would say that seems like a possibility, though fairly low likelihood unless he really runs into a visa blockade.
