DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-03 15:00:00 (link to chat)What in the hell is wrong with me? You guys ranked me a five star prospect and now I have no idea where the ball is going once it leaves my hand. What should the Brewers do with me? Me and Soup are truly "anchoring" our rotation.
(Manny Parra from Milwaukee)
What the hell *is* wrong with you, Manny? I thought you were supposed to be good, and I see you lit for double digits last night.

I don't recall if he has a minor league option remaining, or if there's an underlying injury problem he's been keeping quiet out of fear of losing his job - remember, he's had a litany of arm woes - but at this point I'd move Parra out of the rotation one way or another and give Seth McClung another shot there.

2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff Games"lrgreen (NYC): BP in 2007 said that Seth McClung was 25 saves away from being the All-Time Saves leader for West Virginia natives. Who is the all-time leader in this robust category?"

Lew Burdette had 31 career saves, per BB-Ref, but 16 of those preceded Holtzman's invention of the save rule, and all of them preceded saves becoming an "official" stat in 1970. (Derek Jacques)
