DateQuestionAnswer
2015-01-08 12:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather take a selfie with a lion OR catch Aroldis Chapman without protective gear?
(Callie Fornya from Where You Think?)
This is a great one to start with. I'll take the selfie with the lion. A while back Tim Kurkjian did a piece on pros getting HBP (http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/8195515/what-feels-get-hit-pitch). Here's my favorite quote: "It was like my face was crushed by a bowling ball, a bowling ball going 95 mph." That's from Kevin Seitzer who got hit by Scott Erickson. Chapman throws 10 mph harder than that! No thanks. (Jeff Long)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any news on how Hosmer looks to bounce back this year? Has he been working on pushing the ball to the opposite field more? Any insight would help. Thanks for the chat!
(Jeff from Missouri)
I haven't seen much on that topic, Jeff, but this article from FOX Sports Kansas City might be of interest: http://www.foxsportskansascity.com/01/25/13/Hosmer-turns-to-family-for-hitting-tips/landing_royals.html?blockID=854693&feedID=5116.

We'll see if the change in hitting coaches, from Kevin Seitzer to Jack Maloof, makes any difference, or if Hosmer can make an adjustment on his own. (Daniel Rathman)
2009-07-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Rob Neyer and Keith Law loved the George Sherill for Josh Bell and Steve Johnson deal. Could you please tell me your opinion?
(bo9anderson from Amsterdam (the Netherlands))
Same. Orioles moved an asset that had basically no value to them for a possible third-base solution. There's some question about Bell's glove, but I could see him as Kevin Seitzer, maybe...OK, that's his upside...for a while.

Lightning round. (Joe Sheehan)
