Hi Jeff. My friend forgot to ask: Trends seem to come and go as statistics become under/over valued. Have you seen any obvious trends from a team-building perspective, aside from mega-bullpens?
Jeffrey Todd

Maybe multi-position flexibility? Cubs, Dodgers are all in on that. Even the Cardinals may be going that way with some pretty important pieces.

jay bruce to the indians for José Ramírez
Jeffrey Todd

They won't give up Ramirez for him, IMO.

Think Boston would look into a package deal for T Chatwood, and C Blackmon? What would it take for Colorado to listen?
Jeffrey Todd
3:53
Blackmon, sure, but nobody's buying into Chatwood just yet - least not for a return that would get COl to move him. Also, I watched him get knocked around pretty good just last night down at Coors.

Im proud of your trolling abilities. very underrated.

but yeah drop something about the rangers so i can be done posting questions.
Jeffrey Todd
3:53
Didn't even realize I was doing that. Natural talent, I guess.

Jeff seems pretty salty today with responses to the West Coast Fan...
Jeffrey Todd
3:54
Yes, because I have no idea what the basis is for it.
Jays Mojo

Grilli a good low cost pickup for the Jays?
Jeffrey Todd
3:54
Sure, give up nothing and grab a veteran guy. No reason not to grab him for depth.
Jeffery Todd

Why do you always use "of course" in your articles?
Jeffrey Todd
3:55
Didn't we cover this last week? I've been trying not to. Of course, it's possible I've missed a couple.

Have you ever caught a home run/foul ball?
Jeffrey Todd
3:56
Better believe it. Nats Park, RF line -- had to reach into the tunnel to snag a liner. Best moment of my life. It's sitting right next to me as we speak!

See anyone retiring at the end of the year that we under appreciated and are gonna miss?

Chase Utley is the kind of universally respected player who could meet this description.
BRYAN

I do not like the Mets BUT that Umpire should not have tossed Noah Syndagurrd out of the game for throwing behind Chase Utley!! NO WARNING!!! Come on!! The Umpire should have to pay the Fans their money back!! We do not watch baseball games to see the Umpire toss out the star players in the third inning!! I like OLD SCHOOL base brawl!!! I mean baseball!! Can not slide into a player, can not run over the catcher!!! Whats next the pitchers and infielders going to wear hockey style face-mask in the field and on the mound??

Since I was at the Rockies/Reds game last night, btw, I have to say ... goodness, watching Billy Hamilton is so much fun. He was also really cool out in CF, handing out balls to fans and messing around with Duvall. Cool stuff.

Am I the Padres GM in September?
Jeffrey Todd

Fact that you're even asking ... ouch. But yes.
Dan the Man

Are you a fan of the "Every team gets at least one All-Star" rule?
Jeffrey Todd
4:01
Yeah, it's for fun.
And marketing, etc.
Matt E

Duvall is currently the best LF in baseball according to the numbers. How is that bad?
Jeffrey Todd
4:01
Did I call him bad? Talking about what to expect moving forward. Not arguing with what's in the books.
Jeffery Todd
4:02
That was a terrible joke.
Jeffrey Todd
4:02
Not sure which, but I don't doubt it.
Curios George

Whats ECB?
Jeffrey Todd

east coast bias
Gus

I'm done with you.
