BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-11-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)What good-to-very good college player has disappointed you the most in fact that he never acclimated to hitting or showed the immense power that he once had in College?
(jlarsen from Highland Park, IL)
Biggest disappointment for me through the years was that JD Drew never was the player whom I thought he might be on a consistent basis. Joe Borchard would be my second choice. (Dan Evans)
2008-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wikipedia's list of position players who have had Tommy John surgery: Rocco Baldelli, Joe Borchard, Shin-Soo Choo, Chris Denorfia, Rusty Greer, Luis Gonzalez, Matt Holliday, Norris Hopper, Cezar Izturis, Kelly Johnson, Xavier Nady, and Vance Wilson. Also, Jose Canseco could be included but doesn't really count since he blew out his arm while pitching.
(Gump from nyc)
Jimmy Wales is a great guy, but .... man, that's a really incomplete list. (Will Carroll)
