So, following up to Harper/Machado: 400 million? 500 million? Just how gloriously high are these contracts gonna be?
Travis Sawchik
1:18
$400ish
Or the owner could give Machado and Harper his franchise, and Harper and Machado then pay the owner a sum

6 keepers in a 12-team pts league. Which 1 should I drop: Votto, Freeman, Posey, Cespedes, Carpenter, Strasburg, or Hendricks

Hendricks

You don't think that a July WBC would lead to more guys skipping it because they want a break? What about a January WBC?
Travis Sawchik
1:19
Possibly. But baseball could create some incentive to participate it if nationalism proves to not be enough of a drawing card

Which team should make facial hair mandatory for all players in order to antagonize the Yankees the most?
Travis Sawchik

Weren't the Red Sox already doing this?

how is health a skill?
Travis Sawchik

Some players stay on the field consistently, others do not

Won't the Dodgers be too near their payroll max to be in play for Harper? Or do they have serios money coming off the books?

I know it was the WBC, but Duffy looked fantastic. What do you realistically expect from him this season? Any major regression from last year?
Travis Sawchik
1:22
I really like Duffy. Three plus pitches and improved command

If the entire MLB organization was on the Titanic and your lifeboat only had three seats left, which three people would you take for their personalities?
Travis Sawchik

Brian Kenny, Francisco Lindor and Joe Maddon

What do you think of Maeda this year? Did the league catch up with him toward the end of last season or did he tire? Or both? Does he take a step back in '17? Thanks
Travis Sawchik
1:25
He should be stronger in theory this year after adding bulk. I don't see why he can't come close to his 2016 production and add some innings

Great Gerrit Cole read on Friday. Do you think he will put it all together and top his 2015?
Travis Sawchik
1:25
He'll be better ... But I'd like to see him trust his changeup

Why do I love Matt Holliday this season? I see a .270/27/90 season coming. Am I high on drugs, or is he extremely underrated in fantasy this season?
Travis Sawchik
1:26
He's 37. Even in Yankee Stadium II, I can't buy in too much

I hate the intentional walk rule for this year .. it saves no consequential time during the game, and takes a fun fan thing out of the game ... booing the opposing pitcher for being a coward
Travis Sawchik
1:27
You can still boo for cowardice ... it will just be for a briefer period. Batter still has to advance to first base

I usually don't pay too much attention to early spring training stats, but Heyward's spring batting numbers are some of the few numbers that could indicate a red flag. Could Heyward's hitting really be as bad as it has looked this spring and in 2016?
Travis Sawchik

I'm not sure that swing can be fixed in one offseason, if at all

I know it's the WBC, but what Marcus Stroman did against that stacked DR lineup was rather impressive. Do you expect a true breakout year for Stroman this season?
Travis Sawchik
1:29
That was awesome. My only concern is about his size and durability
CamdenWarehouse

Multiple Travises? That's how he writes so much!
Travis Sawchik

There's really only one, which is why I regret to inform you that I'd rather stay but I must go and write. Same place/time next week, friends
