If I'm going off-the-cuff with 30 seconds to think about it, I'd go Lindor-Seager-Correa, but they're all great
Kevin

How often do you watch MLB network?
Steve Adams
4:12
I don't have cable (or any TV channels). Just Netflix, Amazon, Hulu.
So, very rarely. I do check it out from time to time when I'm back home visiting family in Minnesota or if I'm at a friend's place who has cable.
Bud Black
4:12
I need to start David Dahl everyday, right Steve?
Steve Adams
4:13
He should play regularly, yeah
Jedish Hoyerish
4:13
sounds like you need Sling
OTA antenna
4:13
But me for like $10 and you'll have a lot of free HD channels.
Steve Adams
4:13
I watch too much TV as it is, ha
gio
4:14
Will Astros gaining two extra draft picks sway them to give up the prospects demanded in a Jose Quintana trade?
Steve Adams
4:15
I don't think their assessment was ever based on how depleted their farm would be. I'd imagine they just came to the conclusion that four years of Quintana and the associated risk (not a comment on his arm, just the risk associated with all pitchers) doesn't carry as much value as 6-7 years of Musgrove, Marte and Tucker. Getting a couple of lottery-tickets-to-be-named-later (LTTBNL?) doesn't change that valuation.
Karl
4:16
Chris Carter would seem like a good fit for the Twins right?
Steve Adams
4:16
Mauer, Park, Vargas all already on board... I don't know that adding Carter is especially necessary
Can O' Corn
4:16
so how do you watch baseball then?
Steve Adams
4:17
MLB.tv
And with a TV, laptop and second monitor I can put on quite a few games at once, ha
Cookie Monster
4:17
Buster is staying at Catcher for the forseable future right? They have Belt who is awesome!
Steve Adams
4:18
Still one of the best offensive and defensive catchers on the planet. No reason to move him elsewhere
LaRussa's Escalade
4:19
Does Peter Bourjos make the White Sox outta spring training?
Steve Adams
4:19
I'd say there's a decent chance of that yeah
Friarfever

Answer more Padres questions, I COMMAND YOU!!!!!!!
Steve Adams
4:20
I honestly can't even recall seeing one in here -- San Diego not representing well today
Matt
4:20
Bryce Harper or Cam Newton, who's face would you prefer to punch?
Steve Adams
4:20
Neither? The hatred fans feel toward both of them is nonsensical.
Adam
4:20
Jonathan Villar over/under: 15 HR /50 SB
Steve Adams
4:20
Under and under
grudge
4:21
travis wood back to the cubs as the 5th starter long man in the pen
Steve Adams
4:21
He wants to start -- not be moved back and forth between the two spots. And he'd now have Anderson and Montgomery as competition. Don't see it
Friarfever
4:21
That's a lie
Steve Adams
4:22
It's not a lie to say I haven't seen one in here. I've been asked 1500-2000ish questions and a minuscule fraction of them have probably been Padres-oriented, as I can't recall reading one today.
JP
4:22
which MLBTR writer is the best baseball player?
Steve Adams
4:23
Jeff still plays. I was always terrible, and I don't think Tim was especially great either. Not sure about Connor, but I don't think any of us are still playing other than Jeff.
Ryan
4:23
Who is the opening day shortstop for the Padres in 2017?
Steve Adams
4:23
Sardinas
Ok I'm wrapping up for the week. Jason will chat tomorrow at 630 CT
Jeff Thursday at 2 CT
4:24
