2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)Any idea what type of player the Braves are looking for in return for Will Ohman?
(Brent from Raleigh)
Halfway decent prospect. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)96 on the tv gun.....
(Jack from Chicago)
96 on Gameday, which is what I use.

Hearing "very close" on an Angels deal. Kotchman is definitely part of it, but also hearing that none of the Angels top prospects is included in their offer. (Stunner eh?) Will Ohman may be involved as well. All I have now. (Will Carroll)

2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game OneShaun P. (Medway, MA): Jay, I was as surprised as you to see Torre deviate last week with Broxton - and I have no idea how often he did this season or last - but it will take a lot more than a couple of deviations to convince me he's changed. Not saying its not possible, just that I'm incredibly skeptical. Steven, I think he should have pulled Kershaw when he was laboring - but since he didn't, I'm not surprised he left Sherrill in too.

Actually I wasn't surprised at the Broxton move at all. I know he did it twice this year, once in late April (backed by Will Ohman) and once in late August (Sherrill). Plus he brought Broxton in for a 4 or 5 out save several times as well, just as he did with Mariano Rivera in the Bronx. I've said my piece about last night but bullpenwise, there are managers with much less flexibility than Joe. (Jay Jaffe)
