Hey everyone! Chat time.
GM RYAN
5:33
Does gerrit Cole deserve a Stephen strausburg type contract
Connor Byrne
5:33
I'll be very surprised if he doesn't get more. Seems like a $200MM contract waiting to happen.
Nick
5:33
Byron Buxton is the most underrated player in the league, true or false?
Connor Byrne
5:33
I don't know about that, but I do think he's underrated. Definitely one of my favorites to watch.

5:34
Remember when people in this chat were saying Vlad was a bust? lol
Connor Byrne
5:35
They were? Their loss, then. He's 20 years old. No surprise he got off to a slow start, but he'll at least be an offensive star.
Phillies
5:35
Do we still have a good chance at the Wild Card?
Connor Byrne
5:35
Not my pick, but they're tied for it right now, so sure
Hazen
5:36
Odds are against us for sure, but, if we snag one of the WC spots, am I looking at GM of the year? Extremely low expectations but selling Goldy/Greinke, not bringing back Pollock/Corbin, skyrocketting our farm system ranking and getting into the playoffs would be pretty hard to ignore right?
Connor Byrne
5:37
Certainly in the discussion. I'd say the D-backs are in good hands with Hazen.
Jinx
5:37
What will it take for the Mets to shed themselves of the Cano contract?
Connor Byrne
5:37
They're pretty much stick with that deal. At least he's been heating up lately. Too bad about the injury.
Braves fan
5:37
What are your thoughts on the braves at the moment with Greene struggling out the gate with closer job?
Connor Byrne
5:38
I wouldn't panic. Obviously he wasn't going to sustain the 1.18 ERA he had when he joined the Braves. Still a solid reliever.
Artie P
5:38
Do the Red Sox clean house next year and trade Mookie???
Connor Byrne
5:38
Definitely not.
DodgerFan
5:38
The AL Wild Card Teams will be...
Connor Byrne
5:38
I had Indians/Red Sox as of a couple weeks ago. Now? Indians/A's. Boston's in big trouble now.
Scott
5:39
With the Contreras injury, are there any outside options now that there is only 1 trade deadline?
Connor Byrne
5:40
Lucroy immediately comes to mind, but I don't know that Chicago would bother. He hasn't been good in a while.
Karan Ashar
5:40
People have already crowned Astros winning the AL title but Yankees can upset them right? Yes good pitching beats good hitting but its a short series and if JV has couple of bad outings, Yankees with their super bullpen can upset them right? Or am I too optimistic
Connor Byrne
5:40
The Yankees definitely have a shot. They've overcome one obstacle after another all year.
Dick Williams
5:41
Do Reds with new rotation sneak into second wild card
Connor Byrne
5:41
Not this year. We'll see how president Dick Williams and GM Nick Krall handle the offseason.
Jinx II
5:41
Does Jed Lowrie ever play a game as a Met?
Connor Byrne
5:41
Probably next year. I'm not holding my breath for this season.
Steve
5:42
Gabe Kapler has consistently disappointed Phillies fans. Poor decisions and lack of control. Do you think he’ll be let go at the end of the season?
Connor Byrne
5:42
Not unless they totally collapse over the next two months.
Angel Fan
5:42
What will likely happen to Cole Calhoun during the 2019 off season...traded?cut?re signed? thanks...
Connor Byrne
5:42
I'm guessing the Angels will decline the option, but he's a good player. He'll land on his feet.
Swinging Friar
5:43
What will be the year when the Dodgers' NL champ streak ends?
Connor Byrne
5:43
2020
Patty cakes
5:43
If you were starting a team tomorrow, who would you take? Acuna, vladdy, or tatis?
Connor Byrne
5:43
Good question. Give me Acuna.
Ozzie smith
5:43
Can the Cardinals get to the dance with their starting pitching ?
Connor Byrne
5:44
I'd have liked to have seen them upgrade their rotation, but they're a half-game up with this staff through 110 games, so sure.
Billy Pilgrim
5:44
Do you believe the Astros offered Bregman for Fulmer. Doesn't seem like their MO especially since they wouldn't include him for Sale.
Connor Byrne
5:45
Anthony Fenech reported it, and I trust him, so yeah. But Fulmer was a way bigger asset back then, so I'm not going to kill the Tigers for saying no.
Overbearing Padre
5:45
Please explain to me how the Padres will be anywhere near contenders next year considering their lineup isn't likely to change at all.
