BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Give me one prediction for every manager opening.
(manny99 from Do you care?)
Completely guessing on all of these, with some guesses being more educated than others, but...
Rangers: Tim Bogar keeps the job
Astros: A.J. Hinch
Diamondbacks: Jose Oquendo
Twins: someone internal, like Paul Molitor (Daniel Rathman)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the ultimate future of both Danny Haren and Brandon Webb going to be with the Diamondbacks? One/both used as trade material, or will they both walk as free agents or re-sign?
(Akneeland from Arizona)
When I spoke to A.J. Hinch about a month ago, he insisted he felt the D-Backs weren't far away from being what they were in 2007 when they got to the NLCS. I assume GM Josh Byrnes feels the same way, so I would suspect the Diamondbacks will try to keep both, though they won't pick up Webb's option, and try to make a run next year. If the teams gets off to a bad start, both could go at the trading deadline. (John Perrotto)
