Should Hunter Strickland take over for Casilla?
Jeffrey Todd
3:18
Maybe, but they've given little indication that's happening and Strickland hasn't been spotless.
Jake Arrieta
3:19
Why did Steve Adams write me off as a one year wonder ?
Jeffrey Todd
3:19
I trust this is a joke of some kind, but I like it and can already imagine the steam coming out of Steve's ears as he reads this.
Michael
3:19
Is this the Marlin's year to break out?
Jeffrey Todd
3:20
I'm not expecting that, but they are a borderline playoff contender if things break right. Of course, losing Gordon is not that.
Jordan
3:20
Why hasn't Harper been suspended ? He shoild see 10-15 games for that IMO
Jeffrey Todd
3:21
Wow you guys are out for blood. Get used to a lot of your favorite players getting lengthy bans for screaming obscenities at umps.
Hellbug
3:21
Any chance the brewers re-acquire Carlos Gomez on the cheap
Jeffrey Todd
3:21
Not really.
sean
3:21
nobody saw the collapse from gomez except the mets when they nixed the trade!
Jeffrey Todd
3:22
Please, they were moments away from making it. I don't think all of his downturn is attributable to injury, so let's not go wild. Again, I'm not saying they were wrong at all for trying to add him -- I'd have preferred him to Yo at that time myself.
Mr. Crabcakes
3:23
Doesn't Trea Turner solve too many problems for the Nationals to not call him up right now? Leadoff hitter w/ speed - Check, Not Danny Espinosa - Check
Jeffrey Todd
3:23
Don't know that they'd throw him right atop the lineup, but yeah, he's about due.
Dan Duquette
3:24
What would a machado extension cost me?
Jeffrey Todd
3:24
Let's start with Giancarlo and go up from there.
Boston Strong
3:25
You had written off David Ortiz is the past, how does the crow taste now ?
Jeffrey Todd
3:26
Me? I never did such a thing, at least not that dramatically. Guess I could've suggested I thought he'd continue normal aging fall-off. I'd love to know what on earth you're referring to.
Sammy
3:27
Chances Jose Fernandez is delt?
Jeffrey Todd
3:27
Not great, certainly not if they're anywhere near contention.
This summer, anyway.
Tara
3:28
Joey Rickard has been slumping, Os should deal him at the deadline for Shields or someone who can help their roto don't you think
Jeffrey Todd
3:28
You mean top prospect Joey Rickard? You'd have thought it from some of the reactions his hot start got. The guy was a Rule 5 pick for a reason, folks.
guest
3:29
Are you saying it will not take any premium talent to get Fernandez?
Jeffrey Todd
3:31
I was referring to "super-premium" to mean, like, top five overall prospects or really promising young MLBers. Certainly would take multiple "merely premium" players if you don't include one of the former.
Mr. Crabcakes
3:32
Will Drew Pomeranz be the most sought after FA pitcher this offseason? He has looked pretty good in San Diego this year...
Jeffrey Todd
3:32
Still has a long way to go to prove it's real ... and a long way til he's a FA.
McCann
3:32
Smith, Koji and Kimbrel or Betances, Miller and Chapman?
Jeffrey Todd
3:32
Latter

3:33
Why do you waste time on stupid questions? more trade value for the Phillies Hellickson or Ruiz? Brian wilson. come on
Jeffrey Todd
3:33
What do you have for us, Sloop John B? Just criticism? I answer questions as I see them and think I can answer them quickly.
sean
3:34
Does Strasburg deal mean more trades? How?
Jeffrey Todd
3:35
I don't know why people keep saying that, frankly.
JJ The Jet Plane
3:36
Wait what are the "obvious reasons" to not suspend guys that curse at umps? Can you expand?
Jeffrey Todd
3:36
That it happens a lot and can be dealt with in other ways. Are we just now learning that baseball players are crass?
Chris
3:37
Ryan Braun for jarred eickhoff? Assuming Phillies are in contention for wildcard
Jeffrey Todd
3:38
That's way too much for Braun.
Given what Eickhoff has shown thus far, his value is way up.
Oh boy I went longer than I realized ... going to hang up soon. Couple more.
Big Fan

So given the popularity and lack of other options (Mail Bag and Podcast), any chance of a third chat per week?
