DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Kennys Vargas be a big league regular, or is he another data point with Calvin Pickering, Kyle Blanks and Walter Young against Very Large Men?
(Mario66 from Pittsburgh)
I'd wager against Vargas working out, but you didn't include Steven Moya (worlds largest human) and Juan Duran. Very upsetting. (Jordan Gorosh)
