Um, the only Jimmy Buffett song I know is "Cheeseburger in Paradise," because when I worked at Fenway it was one of the songs in the regular pregame rotation.

Bickford and Susac for Will Smith is a bit much huh? I know the packages the Yankees got for Chapman and Miller but cmon... Will Smith??
Paul Swydan
3:57
Will Smith is marvelous. He was hurt earlier in the year IIRC, but he's really good.
Santos
3:57
I will never understand people
Paul Swydan
3:58
They're the worst!
Josh

How many world series did ted williams and barry bonds win?
Paul Swydan
3:59
LOL. You're right. Ted Williams' abrasive personality is completely the reason that his owner was a racist prick who refused to sign Willie Mays and Jackie Robinson. That was ALLLLLLLLL Ted Williams' fault.

Paul, how do you rate the Indians. You like them to win the AL Central and advance a round or two in the playoffs? I'm asking you since August is probably biased.
Paul Swydan
3:59
I like the Indians a lot. I think they probably do take the AL Central. I'll hold off on postseason prognostication though.

Hector Santiago to the Twins! All in, right?
Paul Swydan
4:00
Clear hearts, full stomachs, taco time. That's how that saying goes, right?
Charlotte the bassador
4:00
THERE IS A LOT HAPPENING AND I CANT KEEP TRACK. At least I'm not a Mets fan tho. LOL
Paul Swydan
4:00
That's where I'm at, basically.

Joey Gallo + Chris Carter + Domingo Santana: over/under 9000 strikeouts?
Paul Swydan
4:01
That's just more time to get up and get a beer.
Shirtless George Brett
4:02
Passan says no Gallo in Lucroy deal.
Paul Swydan
4:02
Boy I wish he'd make up his damn mind.
Trevor Gobble
4:02
Nolasco to Angels, Hector Santiago to Twins
Paul Swydan
4:02
Rob Antony wanted to make sure he passed his audition, I guess.
Jeff in Allston
4:03
would love a meme of your twitter avatar/the sandlot character and the text says "it's not neccessary" ala your seatgeek read. would make me very happy
Paul Swydan
4:03
Wait, was Carson chatting earlier?
Adam
4:03
Cubs get Joe Smith per Olney.
Paul Swydan
4:03
That is a very crowded bullpen in Chicago, methinks.
Mark
4:03
Seems like Lucroy + Jeffress to Rangers for at least Brinson and Ortiz.
Paul Swydan
4:04
I wish we just knew the full parameters of these deals already. I mean, it's 4:04. Gheesh.
4:05
If it's just Brinson and Ortiz, that feels light, especially with the Rangers also getting Jeffress.
James
4:06
You guys going to comment on the trades happening right now or...
Paul Swydan
4:06
Trying, James. I'm trying.
ASG
4:06
Who closes in Tex, Dyson or Jeffress?
Paul Swydan
4:07
They're both of similar quality. My hope would be that they don't nail down one of them as the closer, but if you're forcing me to choose, I'll say they stick with Dyson for now.
Jose
4:08
Luis Ortiz and Lewis Brinson going to Milwaukee, Lucroy and Jeffress to Texas. Does that feel like a light return for Lucroy and Jeffress?
Paul Swydan
4:08
It definitely does. I've been low man on Brinson for a bit though, so I suppose I'm biased.
Mike
4:08
Smith and Jeffress gone, is Thornburg the new closer for the Brewers?
Paul Swydan
4:09
I would assume so, unless he got traded and we just haven't heard about it yet.
Bob Sacamano
4:09
Reports coming out now that Nimmo isn't in the Bruce deal. If this is true can we really believe anything we hear now?
Paul Swydan
4:09
I think with as crazy a day as it seems to have been, that we need to avoid jumping to conclusions until we have the full trade terms set.
Hal
4:09
Nova just traded to Pirates per Heyman. Is Cutch + Marte a good return?
Paul Swydan
4:10
Feels light. That guy McCutchen wasn't even an All-Star this year. What a bum!
