Let's assume the worst and Trout goes out for the year, who is then the best player in all of baseball land?

Which teams do you think go into a rebuild in the next calendar year?
Jason Martinez
5:52
If Tigers or Orioles have disappointing seasons, they could both be rebuilding next offseason. Both need a farm system overhaul and have valuable big league trade chips.

Can Austin Jackson turn himself back into a starting outfielder or has injuries and age turned him into a solid 4th outfielder?
Jason Martinez
5:54
I don't think he'll get the chance. He's in a great situation, though, as a 4th OF getting regular at-bats against LHP on a World Series contender.

Hi Jason can you bring up the link to the TJ study done last year by MLBTR. Wonder where Price and Reyes were on that list.

Howdy. How about trading Trumbo to the Rockies and letting Desmond be an OF?
Jason Martinez
5:59
They had a chance to sign Trumbo and passed. I think they're happy with Dahl, Blackmon, CarGo in '17. Desmond gives them flexibility in case of injury or in case CarGo leaves as a FA or if Blackmon is traded.

What are your projections for Shelby miller this year? Tough third start.
Jason Martinez
6:03
I have him bouncing back somewhat ... 4.35 ERA, 1.42 WHIP. Tough to pitch at Chase Field, especially for a guy who doesn't rack up high strikeout totals. I think he'll be better prepared this season, but I don't expect he'll return to his rookie season form (3.06 ERA, 8.8 K/9).

How disappointed would you be if I sold you a Baseball signed by Ripken and you found out it was Billy instead of Cal??
Jason Martinez
6:04
If it was the real Willie McGee who sold it to me, I'd still have a great story to tell for the rest of my life.

Any love for Christian Friedrich?
Jason Martinez
6:05
I love that he kind of reminds me of Tom Glavine. That's more visual, although he can paint the corners when he gets into a groove. Not consistent enough with his Glavine-ness.

Shortstop is loaded: Correa, Seager, Xander, Lindor.....Which one of the Yoots would you want to build your team around?
Jason Martinez
6:07
You seriously couldn't go wrong with either of those guys. If I had to choose, I'd probably pick Correa.
Gotta run. Thanks for chatting! Have a great week, everybody.
