Bellinger, Conforto or Judge. Who will have the better career? I guess there is not a bad answer!
Travis Sawchik

I love that group. They are all star-level guys, for me.
Bellinger's swing is one of my favorite things
12:54
That's a tough choice. I've said Conforto over Judge in past chats, but Judge has made me a big believer

Happy Memorial Day for All past heroes. Hi Trav. for rest of season, how do you see Bregman?
Travis Sawchik
12:55
Let's all take a moment today to remember why we're enjoying a long weekend. .... I suspect Bregman will be better, but he's probably not going to carry a team

I traded Schwarber for Allen. Did I sell too low?
Travis Sawchik
12:56
In a yearly league, no. Allen is great. Underrated closer for fantasy

Could the cubs be worried about the Brew Crew and make a deal for Braun? Heyward + cash + happ for Braun

Nah

Hey Travis! Question about rainouts - Say its a 1pm game and it gets postponed, why is it easier to push it to another day alll-together as opposed to maybe a 4pm or 7pm gametime (assuming the weather would allow)?
Travis Sawchik
12:58
It would make some sense for teams to be more flexible with start times, I suppose...but people have schedules to keep and it would be tough for teams on getaway days

The Astros were freed from Mike Fiers starts for a total of 9 hours. With Charlie Morton's injury, do you see an expedited timetable for the promotion of Paulino or Martes?
Travis Sawchik

I wish we could see a fully, healthy season from Morton. I don't think Fiers will get much more leash

Hey, just want to thank you for the amazing work you've done this year. You've been my favorite baseball writer to read
Travis Sawchik
1:01
Very kind of you, Kevin. There are a ton of great writers out there but I'm glad you've been enjoying my contributions

How good do you think Moncada will be once called up?
Travis Sawchik
1:01
Hey Paul!
1:02
He might face an adjustment period ... and the Ks are a little concerning but he's worth an upside play. But he'll be better than Nolasco ;)

Umm, regarding that 'push the start back' idea. Fans have schedules, too.
Travis Sawchik
1:03
Yeah, to clarify, that's what I meant by schedules to keep

Do you see any trades taking place significantly before the 7/31 deadline? Wash closer? Roberston??
Travis Sawchik
1:03
A lot of people are connecting those dots. I'm curious to see how patient the Yankees will be
Quintana

Am I done for as a consistent, reliable starter?
Travis Sawchik
1:04
No, but I wonder if the White Sox were being too greedy in the offseason. They risk a performance decline or injury by holding
1:05
Alright folks, I'm going to wrap up here on this holiday. ... Take a moment to remember those who have fallen in service for our country today. ... Same time/place next week. Be good, do good.
Connecting...
