Jose Reyes being traded for pitching?
Jeffrey Todd
3:03
How do you foresee him rebuilding his trade value, exactly?

Do the Mets ever become a big market team again?
Jeffrey Todd
3:06
Well, they are a big-market team, regardless of whether they spend like one. And that is also good reason to believe they will spend like one, because they have revenue opportunities that some orgs just don't. They've already boosted the payroll, obviously, and it should be interesting to see how it goes from here, once they have had a chance to cash in on this group a bit and as the Madoff scandle fades.
"Scandle." Yes, I wrote that.

Is Barry Bonds the greatest Baseball player of all time?
Jeffrey Todd
3:09
YES!!!
I mean, I guess it's hard to tell, what with the PEDs. But dude would've probably put up like 3-4 more really productive seasons if he had kept playing.

More exciting: opening week of regular season or winter meetings?
Jeffrey Todd
3:11
Well, obviously from the transactional perspective, it's the winter meetings. But I still get more of a buzz from real baseball starting.

in terms of tv contracts, can a team pay an early termination fee to get out or pay a large sum to get out?
Jeffrey Todd
3:14
I would almost think of the teams as if they were players that signed early-career extensions. At the beginning of the deal, everyone adds it all up and talks about how big the guarantee is. By the end, it probably looks cheap.
Okay going to grab a couple more here and then finish up.
Nick

To early to worry about K-Rod?
Jeffrey Todd
3:15
Yes
Joe C

Who are some mid-summer trade targets for the Cubs if they opt to make a deal?
Jeffrey Todd
3:15
I'm not answering this because you asked it 12 times, and because there really aren't any obvious needs right now.
Ray
3:16
Cubs keep Baez in AAA when healthy?
Jeffrey Todd
3:16
Doubt it. I think he has a significant role on this team.
Okay, all, I gotta go. Talk next week!
