Does Jeremy Hellickson get traded, or does the QO possibility entice the Phillies to hold onto him?
Jeffrey Todd
5:26
I don't think that's going to keep him in Philly. Likely trade piece for me.
Greg
5:26
Tigers are that team that are so close to being a contender.. what moves could you invision?
Jeffrey Todd
5:26
Quality arms of all kinds have to be under consideration.
Juanito
5:26
Do you see the Dodgers making any moves for a SP, especially with Urias quickly approaching his innings cap and no other capable replacements?
Jeffrey Todd
5:27
They'll wait to see how McCarthy, Ryu, and Wood progress.
Gordon Beckham
5:27
I've had a good year so far (2 hamstring injuries not withstanding). Will someone want me at the deadline?
Jeffrey Todd
5:27
Sure, as a fill-in/reserve type. Wouldn't expect anything too exciting in return.
Ron
5:28
Assuming some regression, what's Michael Saunders' next contract? 4/60?
Jeffrey Todd
5:29
I'm not really ready to answer that because I haven't thought about it at all, but ... he's always been seen as talented, has had good seasons before, and isn't too old. So it isn't a number that seems out of reach.
Fun

YOU'RE MOVING?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Jeffrey Todd
5:29
Yeah already bounced from Denver! That sucks, but we're getting the kids closer to their grandparents here in VA.
james

reston va is a great place to live fyi
Jeffrey Todd
5:30
I grew up in Sterling, VA so I'm familiar. Not my spot but I can see why people like it.

Does the Cubs' recent sweep by the Cards add a sense of Theo wanting to shake things up through trades?
Jeffrey Todd
5:31
I doubt it. They will look to add, of course, but nothing about their recent play suggests a need for anything dramatic.
Tom
5:31
Chances Reyes goes back to the Mets?
Jeffrey Todd
5:31
Increasing by the day.
For some reason.
Dave
5:31
Chances Nationals get another new closer?
Jeffrey Todd
5:32
Not sure exactly how they'll play this, but there's no reason not to add a quality arm or two at the back of the pen, IMO.

Grichuk failed. Wong is light years from taking a good route in CF and, oh yeah, he still can't hit. Who is a reasonable CF option for StL from outside the org? Also, forgetting the Miller/Chapman types, what LHRP would upgrade the StL pen?
Jeffrey Todd
5:32
The return of Jon Jay?
Gas-House Gorilla
5:33
Is Glasnow simply walking too many batters in AAA to get a shot at the Pirates rotation? Otherwise looks pretty good...
Jeffrey Todd
5:33
I'm sure they want to see better control, yeah. It's the type of thing that could really leave a starter exposed in the big leagues.
Motown
5:34
Central Va?? Come join the fun in northern VA and pay way too much in real estate! Think the O's pickup a pitcher at the deadline??
Jeffrey Todd
5:34
Yeah been there done that with NoVa. Re the O's, yeah, it makes a ton of sense to bolster the staff and they have done that in years past.
Dave Stewart
5:35
What am I doing at the trade deadline? Looking to buy, sell, a little of both, or stand pat?
Jeffrey Todd
5:35
I mean, they look pretty buried to me ...
5:36
Obviously they'll want to avoid a full-blown sell-off, but cashing in a few pieces at least makes sense. Hudson, Ziegler, Clippard, maybe Castillo (though then you're hunting a C this winter).
Jim
5:36
Are the phillies considering trading Nola and if so what could they get for him
Jeffrey Todd
5:36
No, they aren't - esp after his recent rough stretch.

Pomeranz, Kemp and ~half of Kemp's money for Dylan Bundy, Ubaldo's contract and Pedro Alvarez's contract. Who says no?
Jeffrey Todd
5:37
This is one of the weirdest trade scenarios I've seen suggested. Where's the motivation for San Diego here?
Dusty Rizzo
5:38
When am I/we calling up Mr. Turner??
Jeffrey Todd
5:38
Espi raking, so no time in the near future that I can see.
Coppy
5:39
Is it becoming a perfect storm for me to get a big haul for Teheran?
Jeffrey Todd
5:40
I sort of suggested that idea in the recent list of 15 top trade candidates. But I still wouldn't get too wildly optimistic that he's going to net them an uber prospect or a massive haul of really good young players. We'll see.

Do you think Otani will be posted this off-season. If so, do you think any MLB club would let him play both ways?
Jeffrey Todd
5:40
I've seen no indication he will be. And no, I doubt he'll play both ways.
