BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-02-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)All-time favorite prospect man-crush? (Mine was Marty Cordova)
(Mike White from SoDak)
Arquimedez Pozo? (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Francoeur is his career path going the way of Marty Cordova. Hot start and then faded out very quickly.
(Mike from Utica,NY)
Cordova had like six seasons better than Francoeur's second-best. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jeff Francouer the next Marty Cordova?
(Mike from Utica, NY)
Ouch... I think it's an equally odd situation, certainly, and it's so hard to say what comes next for Frenchy that there's definitely a danger. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)What's the matter with Jeremy Hermida? Please don't tell me he's the next Marty Cordova!
(Al from NYC)
I sense a trend, and here I am wondering if I'm not the only fan who's a-Grieve'd by Ben's shortcomings. But hey, if people want to make it all about Marty, it might make it easier for me to forget, and move on... (Christina Kahrl)
