So I've just been battling my computer for thirty minutes, leaving me in a grand mood to start this chat late!
Welcome!
This will be a good day to try to provoke me into giving salty answers.

who is the best SP you think can be traded for?
Jeffrey Todd
3:24
deGrom
munchie
3:24
Is this, finally, the real Carlos Rodon?
Jeffrey Todd
3:24
Talent has always been there. It's about staying healthy and tamping down the walks.
3:25
Really don't think we can yet declare anything.
Daniel
3:25
Do you see any non rental Royals getting traded?
Jeffrey Todd
3:25
Merrifield is the one to watch, I think. I'll guess he stays.
Bob M
3:26
Machado to the Yankees, how realistic?
Jeffrey Todd
3:26
Very realistic, though so are multiple other teams.
Eric
3:26
Aside from Realmuto and Ramos, are there any catchers available?
Jeffrey Todd
3:26
AJ Ellis, Mesoraco, maybe Cervelli
AndyH
3:27
Any update on Victor Robles?
Jeffrey Todd
3:27
Believe he's on a rehab assignment right now.
Matt Smith NE Ohio

Jeff, what relievers are the Indians in on right now? And how unlikely is it that they throw in one of the top pitching prospects the Orioles are asking for in a Machado deal?
Jeffrey Todd
3:28
I would assume the Indians are looking at value first on relievers, rather than choosing a target and trying to chase them down.
3:29
Re Manny ... ehhhh.... I still don't think that's the model for them. Think about the move for Andrew Miller. Yeah, gave up a lot of talent, but they got a relief ace for three years (well, barring injury).
Mose in Socks

Does Billy Hamilton or Adam Jones make sense for the M's?
Jeffrey Todd
3:30
Those are two very different players. Not sure I really would see the logic in either. I mean, I get the idea of bolstering things in center, but Hamilton can't hit (current hot streak notwithstanding) and it's hard to carry another platoon OF on that roster. And Jones should be playing in a corner.
3:32
I mean ... I guess you could imagine the appeal in Billy, but then you're really looking at a 5-man OF unit plus a full-time DH.
Joe

A proposed trade. Cincinnati sends Raisel Iglesias and Adam Duvall to Cleveland for Francesco Mejia Shane Bieber Ryan Merritt and Conner Capel. Too much or too little
Jeffrey Todd
3:33
There's just no way the Indians would send that package. Given what he has shown this year already, Bieber is arguably more valuable than Iglesias by himself.
3:34
That may seem like an outlandish statement, but the dude has carved up minor leaguers and is carrying it into the majors.
Also he's currently in the majors, so I don't see him as a trade candidate.
Your computer
3:34
Maybe, just maybe it could be the operator?
Jeffrey Todd
3:35
Maybe keeping less tabs open would help prevent a 30-minute freeze. I just hate computers and technology. Wish I could write about baseball on the internet without one, y'know?!
Syndergaard or deGrom for
3:36
Miguel Andujar, Clint Frazier and Tyler Austin.
Jeffrey Todd
3:36
I don't think so.
Drake
3:36
What would a Jose Martinez trade look like?
Jeffrey Todd
3:37
It just is hard to imagine right now. So few contenders in the AL. So are you trading him to a non-contender mostly just to move him off the roster and get value back? Then good luck not getting hosed.
Brian Cashman
3:38
Mets were scouting Justus Sheffield - does this mean anything? No way they get him without giving up Syndergaard or deGrom, so why scout him?
Jeffrey Todd
3:38
Not sure what report you're referring to, but I always wonder ... can't scouts be looking at multiple guys?
That said, hey, they should be doing background for a possible SP trade.
J
3:39
Will the Tigers move Fulmer and/or Castellanos?
Jeffrey Todd
3:39
Guessing no, but could.
Steve M
3:40
How close are the Cards from blowing things up?
Jeffrey Todd
3:41
7 games out? Eh, I don't see it barring a total calamity in the next two weeks.
Even then, not like they really have rental assets.
