Dusty
12:53
Strasburg going to stay healthy this year? O/U 30 starts?
Travis Sawchik
12:53
Probably not, but he'll be really good for 180 innings and under appreciated
Anthony
12:54
Could Julio Urias be a top-5 SP within the next couple of years? I mean, the kid is like 13 years old...barring injury, could he be top 5 for 10'ish years?
Travis Sawchik
12:54
A decade is a long time, but he seems to have as good a shot as any young arm in the game to be really, really good for some time

do you like that each baseball team has a unique stadium or would you rather uniform dimensions?
Travis Sawchik
12:56
Oh, I 100 percent am in favor of the variety ... though I think there should perhaps be some more dimension standards. Yankee II has an absurdly short RF wall

Is Markakis worth rostering in a 12 team league?
Travis Sawchik
12:56
Throwing every one a bone here ...
Keefths
12:56
Do you see Daniel Norris taking a step forward this year?
What is his upside ?
Travis Sawchik
12:57
There's definitely upside there and that upside is a No. 2, I think
Tommy
12:57
Carson Kelly, Kolten Wong, and Luke Weaver. Enough for Jose Quintana?
Travis Sawchik
12:58
No. Let's start with Reyes, his torn ligament and all
LT
12:59
Why are people still talking about Bryce Harper and a $400m contract? Did they miss 2012-214 and 2016?
Travis Sawchik
12:59
I do have some concerns about Harper's durability ...but I think his 2012-13 seasons are arguments in his favor, not against
He was what, 19 and 20?

Is Correa, C. Seager, Lindor, Turner, Story and Boegarts better than Rodriguez, Jeter, Garciaparra, and the tier two of Renterria and Vizquel?
Travis Sawchik
1:01
It has the potential to be, yeah ... Will it be? If you include all shortstops of this era versus that era, yes. And it won't be close
Sonny
1:01
Tyler Glasnow pitches per inning update: 20.5
Travis Sawchik
1:01
But those Ks .... He's such a wild card, maybe the biggest wild card among hopeful contenders in 2017

Martinez, Tanaka, Cole, Hamels

When are baseball people going to realize that Stephen Wright can get major league hitters out on a regular basis, Eduardo Rodriquez is fine and that the Red Sox rotation doesn't need Pomeranz?
Travis Sawchik
1:04
I want to see more of Pomeranz, made some big strides last year (in SD, anyways) and was still missing bats in Boston
PF
1:04
Why are very few people/projections recognizing the blue Jays rotation for the formidable force that it is?
Travis Sawchik
1:05
It does seem like the projections are down on the Jays. I like the group.
It will finish in the top 8-12 range, imo
YKnotDisco?!

Is Caillou a part of your daily life? If so, I feel your pain.
Travis Sawchik
1:07
Ha. No, but Daniel Tiger, Blippi, among other favorites ...
Red
1:07
When does De Leon arrive and what kind of K/9 success do you expect him to have?
Travis Sawchik
1:07
This summer and I think he'll be an 8k/9 guy. Love that deal for the Rays. His high-rpm fastball and changeup fit perfectly into organizational philosophy
Anthony
1:08
Last round flier, who you got: Bellinger, Brinson, Meadows, Rosario or Jimenez?
Travis Sawchik
1:09
Rosario ... but I Bellinger is right there

Question 1): _________ is the Edgar Renteria of this NEW ERA shortstop crop (Lindor, Seager, Correa, etc): A) Addison Russell B) Raul Mondesi C) Trea Turner D) Xander Bogaerts E) Dansby Swanson F) Orlando Arcia G) JP Crawford. Question 2) If the answer isn't (B), then is Mondesí closer to Rey Ordoñez? Thanks for chatting with us. I am enjoyed a recent podcast you did with Cistulli not too long ago.
Travis Sawchik
1:11
Thanks! I don't think that's a terrible comp, and it's more evidence of the incredible talent and depth at the position right now
El Guapo
1:11
I was serious about my Markakis question :(
Travis Sawchik
1:11
Oh!
I'm so sorry. Embarrassing for us both ... Are we including Ks?
JVizzle

Justin Upton or Gregory Polanco for this year only in fantasy?
