Does Park steal the DH in Minnesota from Vargas? He's hit well early. They both should be playing, but Mauer's albatross contract certainly complicates things. In my opinion, one of the worst contracts in the game besides Pujols.

That Mauer contract certainly complicates things. Long-term deals with tall catchers should probably be avoided

So Dansby Swanson over Carlos Correa? OKey dokie
Travis Sawchik

Wasn't Correa included in the five? Maybe I misread the question. I think everyone on the planet would take Correa who is a darkhorse AL MVP candidate

Hey Travis, I'm visiting Havana in a few weeks, do you have any insight into attending a beisbol game down there? Gracias
Travis Sawchik

I have a neighbor who is going to Cuba, too. He informed me games are $3 for tourists and 75 cents for locals.

Will the Pirates once again face the fewest lefty starters, or has that changed?
Travis Sawchik

There are a few more LHP in the NL Central now... but I'm not certain about whether or not that has changed

What are the odds Conforto is starting opening day?
Travis Sawchik

The odds seem slim due to the crowd there

For two years, Addison Russell has posted one of the highest IFFB% in the majors. But he's also very young and talented. If I hope that he can bring that down and improve his BABIP, am setting myself up for disappointment? Can players work on decreasing IFFB%?
Travis Sawchik
1:07
Certain players should be able to reduce IFFB% with an alteration to approach/mechanics

Travis Sawchik

I think it's a great idea, but it might take some time to roll out a polished version

Brett Lawrie.. where does he end up? KC seems so obvious.
Travis Sawchik

Not sure. But a better fit than Tampa

With the impending TJ of David Price, don't you think the Red Sox could be this season's biggest disappointment given their astounding lack of depth? Take Sale and Mookie away and you have a very ordinary team. Agreed?
Travis Sawchik
1:12
Is it impending? I think the Red Sox are more talented than you're giving them credit for, but I do wonder if they will regret trading away some of that farm system in the not too distant future

EE, but I think Morales will have a nice year in Toronto
