9:04
Jeff Sullivan: Hello friends

9:04
Jeff Sullivan: Welcome to Friday baseball chat

9:04
LudeBurger: If you’re late again, I swear to all holy heck…

9:04
Jeff Sullivan: I’m late literally every week

9:04
Bork: Hello, friend! Apologies for my absence last week.

9:04
Jeff Sullivan: Hello friend

9:04
Jeff Sullivan: I forgive my friends

9:04
Bret: Did the Jays do a bad thing by signing Kendrys Morales for three-years and $33M in early November?

9:05
Jeff Sullivan: A really bad thing involves giving away quality prospects. The Jays just wasted some money. Morales, simply, is not very good, but he has his uses, and he shouldn’t look terrible on that roster for a couple of years

9:05
Jeff Sullivan: I don’t love the inflexibility of a permanent DH but that might just be my own taste

9:05
Jack: Does a Sonny Gray to Atlanta deal make sense? If so, what would a return look like?

9:06
Jeff Sullivan: I have a very hard time seeing Gray getting traded this winter. Everyone in baseball would love to buy low, but the A’s have no reason to *sell* low, so it would require some bidder to pay as if Gray just had a normal season. I don’t see that happening

9:06
Roadhog: Cashner is going to be a starter, or a reliever for Texas?

9:06
Jeff Sullivan: This addresses the most recent news — Cashner is apparently signing with the Rangers for a year and $10 million

9:07
Jeff Sullivan: Every reason to assume he’ll start. He hasn’t been a reliever since 2012, the Rangers have liked him for a while, and their rotation was and is thin

9:07
Jeff Sullivan: Plus, their bullpen is deep. They don’t need Cashner in relief right now anyway

9:08
Jeff Sullivan: The fact that he got just one year tells you something about how he’s perceived. Cashner’s just 30 and his fastball’s still 94. He should be pretty good. He’s not! So he’s hoping here for a bounceback

9:08
Jeff Sullivan: Hard for me to see Cashner being better than Derek Holland, but maybe he’s more physically reliable

9:09
Dan: What kind of contract would McCann get if he were a free agent?

9:10
Jeff Sullivan: Probably something like 2/$30m, maybe with an option to stretch it to 3/$40m or so. He didn’t have much surplus value, which is why the Yankees had to pay him down to get prospects back

9:11
Ember: What do you think the Yankees will do for DH?

9:11
Jeff Sullivan: I could easily see Beltran coming back. My sense remains that the Yankees don’t want to end up with a Cespedes or Encarnacion-sized commitment right now

9:13
Matt: Is there a trade scenario where the Pirates could get a top of the rotation arm for McCutchen? Any fits that you see?

9:14
Jeff Sullivan: I really can’t think of anything like that right now. Not with a starter already in the major leagues. They could get good pitching prospects, of course, but I don’t know why a team would subtract a good player from the big-league roster to add a good player to the big-league roster

9:15
Jeff Sullivan: You’d need to find a team with a hole in the outfield and a pitching surplus, where they could give up a pitcher in a similar contract situation. You could almost imagine Sonny Gray, except the A’s aren’t very good and so McCutchen would hold less appeal to them

9:15
Jimmy: What do you see out of Leonys Martin this year? More like his pre or post-injury self, or in between?

9:16
Jeff Sullivan: I expect him to be very similar to what he just was, except he should move better in the outfield if he doesn’t hurt his legs again

9:16
Jeff Sullivan: He’s relatively underpowered, so when the fly balls aren’t going out, he’s going to look terrible at the plate. Strikeouts and flies to the warning track are a lousy recipe. But there’s enough pop in there that he can slug another 15-20 dingers

9:17
Jack: Which FA pitcher will end up being the biggest bargain at the end of the offseason?

9:17
Jeff Sullivan: I’m enchanted by a hypothetically healthy version of Charlie Morton, as I wrote about, but I wouldn’t be shocked if it’s Rich Hill

9:17
Lure of the Animal: Which result is more surprising: last Tuesday’s, or yesteday’s?

9:17
Jeff Sullivan: Last Tuesday’s. Yesterday’s was also surprising, but at the end of the day, it makes sense

9:18
Pie: As an Astro’s fan, I’m pretty happy with yesterday. Moving forward, do you see any more potential moves in the lineup? I could see Gurriel slotting into the open outfield spot and/or first base, but I think the team is reluctant to have him play significant time in the outfield.

9:19
Jeff Sullivan: The Astros have a lot of flexibility right now. And I saw they’re still interested in Beltran, which would only make things more cramped. Gurriel’s only opening at the moment is first base, unless they want to shift Marisnick to the bench and play Springer in center. I think Marisnick’s pretty useful so for now I think you’re going to see the Astros running out a bunch of different lineups to mix and match

9:20
Jeff Sullivan: The elephant in the room is that the Astros could go for a home-run style of pitching acquisition. They could, in theory, deal Springer or something for a Sale or Archer. Springer is very valuable, of course, but they feel like they’re missing a true ace. They have an opportunity, even if something is unlikely to happen

9:21
Steven: On a scale of 1 to Monkey’s Uncle, how surprised were you that Trout actually won last night?

9:21
Jeff Sullivan: Monkey’s second cousin

9:22
Jeff Sullivan: A vote like that was inevitable, in the big picture. Surprising that it happened in 2016, but so much has been written about Trout by individual members of the BBWAA that it’s not a total shock enough of them were persuaded to break from tradition

9:22
J: Thoughts on the McCann trade? Really like that the Astros got a good player at a barren position for a reduced price although the Yankees also saved money to use elsewhere and got some flame throwers. Seems like a win win.

9:23
Jeff Sullivan: As my own personal rule of thumb I almost ignore pitching prospects at the lowest levels. They don’t mean much to me, because their odds of success are so slim. I like the pickup for the Astros, and I actually do believe in that modest value of McCann filling a leadership void

9:23
Jeff Sullivan: So help me but I’m seeing an intangible

9:23
Wild West: You’ve been very disparaging of the Morales signing , Tony Blengino loves it in his recent article. Do you guys ever talk ?

9:24
Jeff Sullivan: Dave hates it the most, I dislike it, Tony likes it. We’re all allowed to have our own opinions. I think it makes things more interesting

9:25
I am the Walrus: I did an unscientific study of Baseball America’s top 100 prospects over the past 10 year. Bust rate of 1-10 is about 36%. 11-50 about 50%. So my question is how have the Cubs defied these odds? Seems like they have had very few busts.

9:25
Jeff Sullivan: Soler hasn’t really clicked yet, so there’s that. Baez remains a slightly below-average hitter

9:26
Jeff Sullivan: But mostly, the Cubs have focused on hitting prospects, instead of pitching prospects. And elite-level hitting prospects tend to be reliable. Kris Bryant was almost never going to suck

9:26
Bork: How do you ‘fix’ the award system? Take the voting away from the BBWAA?

9:27
Jeff Sullivan: I don’t know that anything needs to be fixed. The awards don’t have any inherent value. They’re awards made up by the BBWAA, and they’re awards given by the BBWAA, so in that sense whatever the BBWAA decides is right, is right. About the only change necessary is taking care to limit voting to active, baseball-only members

9:28
Jeff Sullivan: There’s always going to be a certain conflict of interest and that’s a problem. A writer can generate content by submitting a controversial ballot. But we can live with that. These are low stakes

9:29
Ken: Jerry Dipoto prefers trades to free agency. The Mariners don’t have much depth to trade from. The Mariners also have a rapidly narrowing window of contention, and presumably a lot of inventive to end their playoff drought. What would you do if you were Dipoto?

9:29
Jeff Sullivan: Get Zack Cozart and hope my pitchers stay healthy

9:30
Andrew: Chances Asdrubal Cabrera’s August/September performance is even slightly sustainable?

9:30
Jeff Sullivan: He was mostly abusing bad pitching down the stretch, like most of the Mets. He’s been a pretty much average hitter before, and I think that’s what he is

9:31
Outta my way, Gyorkass: Say you squinted hard enough to see a Brewers team that at least contends into September. What are the notable things you see?

9:31
Jeff Sullivan: Health and enormous steps forward from Keon Broxton, Domingo Santana, and Orlando Arcia

9:32
Jeff Sullivan: Right now they’re projected for a combined 2 WAR. Not impossible to see them combining for 10

9:32
Jeff Sullivan: (That is very optimistic)

9:32
Ghost of Gred Madduxes Past: I know they’re just rumors, but the Braves dealing a bunch of prospects fro Chris Sale right now is dumb, right?

9:32
Jeff Sullivan: I believe so, yes

9:33
Outta my way, Gyorkass: What does a sensible, and mutually agreeable extension for Zach Davies look like?

9:33
Jeff Sullivan: I don’t think Davies is a pitcher you worry about trying to extend right now. Five years left and he’s not anything like an ace

9:34
Mike: What do you think of the return the Yankees got in the Mccann trade?

9:34
Jeff Sullivan: It’s about right. They got players to dream on, and for PR reasons you can sell a big fastball, but they were never going to get strong prospects for McCann’s two years of decline

9:34
Broseph: What can we expect from James Paxton in 2017, following his late-season surge?

9:35
Jeff Sullivan: I’m Paxton’s biggest fan in the world and I love that he sustained his elevated velocity. With a big fastball and a newfound ability to throw strikes, there’s not much left for him to do. He could stand to help himself get more swings out of the zone, but I think a healthy Paxton is a No. 2

9:35
A. Reitz: Hey Jeff. Curious your thoughts on Tyler Skaggs going in to 2017? As well as Joe Musgrove and Jharel Cotton?

9:35
Jeff Sullivan: Musgrove might not even begin with a starting spot. That’s yet to be determined

9:36
Jeff Sullivan: I like Cotton, and so do the A’s, a lot. Skaggs, I worry about, but he came back from injury throwing a little harder than ever. If the Angels make sure they don’t ride him too hard, I think he can help keep them around .500

9:37
CT: Name one surprising off season happening that hasn’t been mentioned yet!

9:37
Jeff Sullivan: No one is talking about Hwang. Something will happen with Hwang

9:38
Outta my way, Gyorkass: Wily Peralta: good candidate to undergo “failed starter turned dominant reliever” transformation?

9:38
Jeff Sullivan: Biggest problem: he sucks

9:38
Jeff Sullivan: The upside there is just that he’d be a mystery as a reliever. I don’t see any reason to like him *in particular*, but he’s certainly nailed the first part of the premise

9:38
Broseph: Does Edwin Diaz remain a high-leverage RP? Or is a return to starting in his future?

9:39
Jeff Sullivan: Reliever

9:39
Andrew: Shouldn’t the Jays have signed Reddick for his deal than Morales for his?

9:40
Jeff Sullivan: For all I know it might’ve taken more. Reddick’s from Georgia, and I bet he’s happier to play in Houston than in Canada

9:40
Jeff Sullivan: It’s also worth observing that there are a lot of available outfielders. It’s not Reddick or bust

9:42
TomBruno23: What should the Cardinals do with Alex Reyes to start 2017?

9:42
Jeff Sullivan: Probably wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to give him a little more time in the high minors. There’s no acute need in the majors right away, and with Reyes you can be patient

9:43
Jeff Sullivan: Odds are, an opening will materialize before too long. He could also, alternatively, bide his time as a multi-inning reliever

9:43
Ed in Iowa: Article idea for you: How does your article submission process work? Does your work go to Carson and then on to Dave and then back to Carson for posting? Does Dave not read everything ahead of time? Does he ever veto anything? Is that different for the core team than it is for writers that just regularly contribute? I mean not everyone is going to care, but I bet a lot of Fangraphs readers would find that interesting.

9:44
Jeff Sullivan: I’m basically on my own. I come up with something, I write something, and then I publish something. Seldom do I reach out for help or editing. This isn’t gloating or anything — I’m just on a faster schedule than many of the other writers, because of the post volume

9:44
Roadhog: The A’s seem to make a lot of trades on Fridays. Today seems like a good possibility of something happening.

9:44
Jeff Sullivan: I have no counter-argument to this. Are you thinking about the Khris Davis trade? I’m thinking about the Khris Davis trade

9:44
A. Reitz: Liking Houston’s moves so far, especially McCann and what he can do for the young pitching staff. McCullers/Musgrove/Paulino/Martes. Reddick isn’t great, but still an upgrade. Thoughts?

9:45
Jeff Sullivan: The only issue I have with the roster right now is that there are so many health questions in the rotation. Keuchel, McCullers, Morton — I don’t know what you can count on. Like every other contender in the world, they make sense for Rich Hill

9:46
DTH: is it weird that every deal so far (McCann, Reddick, Cashner) has been met with a collective “meh, that seems about right”? what’s the first FA signing or trade that will make everybody sit up and pay attention?

9:46
Jeff Sullivan: Morales was a little questionable, right?

9:47
Jeff Sullivan: The overwhelming majority of transactions will be ordinary transactions. Teams aren’t stupid, they all value players in the same way, and the guy who made the Shelby Miller trade is out of a job

9:47
Jeff Sullivan: There will be some amount of criticism when Chapman or Jansen sign for what they’ll sign for

9:48
Matt: Seeming more likely that the Jays will have to go the trade route to address their corner outfield spots. From where I’m sitting they don’t seem to have a lot of depth in the minors to use as trade capital. Who do you see as potential trade targets and who could they realistically give up?

9:48
Jeff Sullivan: They could still go do something like sign Matt Joyce or whatever

9:48
Jeff Sullivan: In fact, maybe they should!

9:49
Jerry: How many at bats do you think Vogelbach gets next year, and how do you think he does?

9:49
Jeff Sullivan: Right now I’d say 250 – 300. I expect him to play very similarly to Kendrys Morales

9:49
Not Leaving Las Vegas: If we gsell high on Gsellman, what can we get? Or Lugo?

9:50
Jeff Sullivan: Lugo would probably get you more. He’s the more interesting of the two. But I don’t think the Mets should be subtracting from their pitching depth. You see how quickly depth can become necessary to stay competitive

9:50
Andrew: On a scale from 1 to Shelby Miller, how stupid would it be for Atlanta to trade major prospects for Sale/Archer this winter?

9:50
Jeff Sullivan: Well that would depend on the prospects. It wasn’t stupid for the Diamondbacks to trade for Shelby Miller. It was stupid for the Diamondbacks to trade what they traded for Shelby Miller

9:51
Jeff Sullivan: But it looks like Dave just wrote something about this for the main page? Read that!

9:52
Outta my way, Gyorkass: I’ve heard Dave Cameron mention in several chats that for hitters, strikeouts correlate with higher power outputs, but for pitchers, higher strikeout totals do not correlate with higher power against. How does that work – is it the bad and/or lower strikeout pitchers that bear the brunt of the XBH’s and HRs given up by higher strikeout batters?

9:52
Jeff Sullivan: Pitchers face a roughly average slate of opponents. The more of those opponents they strike out, the fewer opportunities there are for those opponents to go deep

9:53
Jeff Sullivan: Now, for any one given hitter in the majors, you sort of have a choice. Most major leaguers could go up and try to slap the ball and maximize contact. But if you do that, you won’t hit the ball anywhere hard. The harder you swing, the more you miss, but the further the ball goes

9:54
Jeff Sullivan: If you want you can always just export some of our statistical leaderboards. You’ll find that, for hitters, strikeouts are correlated to power. Not so for pitchers

9:54
Tom: Is a Kevin Kiermaier comp a fair ceiling for Albert Almora?

9:55
Jeff Sullivan: Sure, provided we all understand that “ceiling” means “best-case scenario.” Kiermaier is one of the very best defenders on the planet

9:55
Jeff Sullivan: Kevin Kiermaier : defense :: David Ortiz : offense. A good hitting prospect might have a David Ortiz ceiling, but that doesn’t mean he’s likely to get there

9:56
Guest: Hey Jeff. I know this isn’t necessarily your jurisdiction, but would Fangraphs ever consider doing some kind of colored shading in the cells on your leaderboards? Green for above league average, red for below — something like that. I often have no idea when looking at some of the more advanced stuff whether a particular stat is good or not.

9:56
Jeff Sullivan: I hear what you mean, but that might cause things to get too cluttered. You can check averages on the individual player pages. But it might help us to just try to explain somewhere what numbers are good and bad

9:57
Jeff Sullivan: I think in our glossary pages for stats, there are reference points showing just that

9:57
Jeff Sullivan: Like here! Scroll down to the table https://www.fangraphs.com/library/misc/war/

9:57
Kim: Would trading Taijuan Walker this offseason be selling low, or is this what he is? What kind of return could he fetch?

9:58
Jeff Sullivan: It would be selling him a little low, given the problems he had with his foot. Now, even the healthy version of Walker is frustrating and a little overrated, but I don’t think now is the time to strike

9:58
Jeff Sullivan: The Mariners don’t really have enough SP depth to give a piece away

9:59
J: What is the best stat to measure a hitter’s eye, O-swing or Z-Swing minus O-Swing? I’ve noticed that high strikeout guys tend to swing more overall making their O-swing look worse but they tend to have a higher gap between the two I guess trying to make more contact.

9:59
Jeff Sullivan: I think Z-Swing – O-Swing is probably a little better

9:59
Ghost of Gred Madduxes Past: Do you think Matt Holiday gets priced out of the Rays budget? He seems like an attractive target for them, though he probably makes sense for a number of AL teams looking for some production at DH that won’t break the bank.

10:00
Jeff Sullivan: Holliday would be a good get for them. I don’t think he’ll command so much that the Rays are driven away

10:00
LudeBurger: Does any team have any reason to “sell low”?

10:01
Jeff Sullivan: If a team has reason to believe a player’s stock will only get lower still, then, sure. As a hypothetical example, the A’s trading Sonny Gray would be selling him low. But if the A’s believe, for their own reasons, that Gray is going to get hurt again, or he’s just lost his breaking ball, then it could make sense to make a move, since he wouldn’t have yet bottomed out

10:02
Erik: Did the Howie Kendrick trade make sense for either side? The Dodgers dump salary they didn’t need to dump, and the Phillies acquire an overpaid veteran and don’t even get a lottery ticket prospect for doing the favor. What am I missing here?

10:02
Jeff Sullivan: Kendrick was unhappy in LA, and the Phillies have been taking a lot of calls on Cesar Hernandez. They could more easily move him now

10:02
JT: Jeff, did Anthony Rizzo’s gratuitous usage of “finger guns” during the postseason taint your opinion of this Cubs team?

10:02
Jeff Sullivan: Anthony Rizzo comes off like he’s probably one of the five or so most likable players in baseball

10:03
Jeff Sullivan: I don’t know if that’s actually true. It’s just how he seems

10:03
Roadhog: With Fisher as the majority partner, could the A’s increase budget? Taking on a contract like Homer Bailey could make sense

10:03
Jeff Sullivan: Isn’t there speculation that this happened because the A’s might stop getting revenue-sharing money? If anything that would only make things worse

10:03
Outta my way, Gyorkass: Brett Anderson: worth a flyer for MIL?

10:03
Jeff Sullivan: Sure

10:04
Jeff Sullivan: He’d make sense for any losing team looking for a chance to make a midseason trade. The Padres could use a bunch of pitchers

10:04
Goodwin Liu: If the Cardinals go trade to plug their CF hole, what realistic deal, do you think makes the most sense?

10:04
Jeff Sullivan: Conceivable they’d try to get in there on Lagares

10:05
cashman: what do you think of the arms going back to the yanks from the astros?

10:05
Jeff Sullivan: You should just read Eric. I know nothing about low-level pitching prospects

10:05
Bork: Can the Sens sustain their winning ways? That -3 goal differential.

10:05
Jeff Sullivan: They sure can’t! :(

10:05
iron wolf: Jeff: I’m one of those O’s fans who was hoping that they’d get Reddick. But realistically there was no way they would offer him a four year deal given his injury history. So, do u think they’ll be pursuing Saunders as a LHB for RF or Brandon Moss? I suspect Desmond is out of their price range.

10:06
Jeff Sullivan: Saunders seems like a Baltimore kind of fit. His market’s depressed because of his second half, but he would love that ballpark

10:06
Matt: ATL should trade Inciarte, right? His value will never be higher, and ATL has a similar, albeit lesser, player in Mallex Smith. What’s a reasonable return?

10:06
Jeff Sullivan: The one thing about this: if the Braves really think they’re going to win in 2017, then shedding Inciarte hurts. But if they’re pretty convinced Smith is ready to go, then Inciarte could be part of a package for something else

10:06
Jeff Sullivan: Personally, I do believe they should trade him

10:07
Matt S: What if the cards traded fat Adams or Garcia for Jake Marisnick of the Astros? Not a good hitter but a great fielder and base runner

10:07
Jeff Sullivan: Marisnick would also be a sensible target, but I don’t think Adams gets you there

10:08
Outta my way, Gyorkass: Who is the sucker GM that gives Mark Trumbo way too much money this offseason? I’d have picked Dave Stewart, but he’s gone now.

10:08
Jeff Sullivan: I’ve had a Rockies sense for a while. They think they’re ready, and they have a wide opening

10:08
Pat G: Fowler to the Mets seems like a better fit than Yo, right?

10:08
Jeff Sullivan: Cespedes is a pretty great fit

10:08
Berry: Ketel Marte was pretty good two years ago. He was pretty crummy last year. What went wrong and/or what does he need to improve upon to get back to his 2015 levels?

10:08
Jeff Sullivan: It didn’t help that he lost like 20 pounds from having mono

10:09
Jeff Sullivan: But, mostly, he’s under-powered. So he needs to be able to maximize everything else if he wants to be an everyday player. He doesn’t hit for power and he’s not a great defensive shortstop, but it’s hard for me to see anything more than a league-average player here, if things break right

10:09
Sandra Bullock in Gravity: 50M$ for Reddick! Josh Reddick! Seems like Jason Heyward-lite, does this mean Springer is moving to CF?

10:10
Jeff Sullivan: Springer could go to CF, Reddick could go to LF, or you could see some mixing and matching since Reddick has never hit lefties very well

10:10
Mike_C: The Braves aren’t ready to be good in 2017. Why is Coppy threatening to derail the rebuild just to add maybe 5 to 6 wins to the 2017 squad?

10:10
Jeff Sullivan: Swept up by last year’s second half

10:10
GraphsFan: Besides BABIP and FIP, which statistics are leading indicators for regressing to the mean?

10:10
Jeff Sullivan: HR/FB

10:10
Jeff Sullivan: probably on both sides

10:12
Matt: Would Inciarte and Albeis or Newcomb be enough to get Quintana?

10:12
Jeff Sullivan: Inciarte and Albies might be enough to start a conversation, but if the White Sox are moving Quintana, I’m not convinced they’d be that interested in a guy like Inciarte, who will never be more valuable than he is at this moment

10:13
Jeff Sullivan: Moving Quintana means the White Sox are thinking about, like, 2019 and beyond. So they’d want prospects, not super-2 outfielders

10:13
Tani Cantil-Sakauye: wtf are the Braves doing? Rebuilding or trying to contend? Any chance they move Inciarte for prospects?

10:13
Jeff Sullivan: I’ll just say, don’t worry too much about the trade rumors until there’s an actual trade

10:13
Jeff Sullivan: But the Braves clearly want to have a competitive product on the field in April

10:14
Okra: What are your thoughts on a team changing their ballpark dimensions in an extreme way to try and create a strategic advantage. I’m thinking move the outfield fences way out and just punt HRs (as an offense) and sign three center fielders to fill your OF. From there, try to build your whole team around speed and athleticism. Shouldn’t cost more to build this team vs a conventional roster. Thoughts?

10:14
Jeff Sullivan: Players would hate it

10:14
Jeff Sullivan: With any kind of extreme ballpark, either your hitters are upset or your pitchers are upset. The only way to keep them calm is to make sure things are reasonably neutral

10:14
Ryan C: What is the outline for a Junior Guerra contract? A ton of cheap control left, was quite good this season, but is also already in his thirties.

10:15
Jeff Sullivan: He’s 32 soon and he has five years of team control. No point in an extension

10:15
Dynamite_J: MLB had a pretty fantastic season and seemed to grow in popularity. Besides CBA harmony, anything else they can do to keep momentum moving forward?

10:15
Jeff Sullivan: Market the shit out of Mike Trout

10:15
Justin Case: What can we expect for the Opening Day RF for the Orioles?

10:15
Jeff Sullivan: League-averageness

10:16
Outta my way, Gyorkass: What ballpark figure would you estimate as to the return MIL would get from a hypothetical Junior Guerra trade?

10:16
Jeff Sullivan: Two moderately interesting pitching prospects. He’s a pretty low-ceiling guy

10:18
Mo Vaughn: How much trade value do MLB-ready prospects who project as league average starters at a non-premium position have? Are these types a dime a dozen?

10:19
Jeff Sullivan: Definitely not a dime a dozen. A league-average player is valuable, especially when he’s cheap and cheap for a while. Chance Sisco projects to be about average over a full season. BA ranked him #85 in their midseason top 100

10:19
Jon: Is there any way to attempt to quantify the negative value a player might have for being a “bad clubhouse guy”?

10:20
Jeff Sullivan: In theory, you’d need to start with a list of “known” bad clubhouse guys
