2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, and the Michigan recommendations. You mentioned your Finnish ancestry, so I'm hoping you can give me some insight on the Upper Peninsula. Why in the world is it part of Michigan instead of Wisconin? Also, does Mike Bordick qualify as a yooper? I know he was born in Marquette, but I think he went to school in Maine.
(TheFlyingBernard from Acton, MA)
Bordick views himself as a Mainer, which isn't as good as being a Yooper, but Maine is cool, too.

Kevin Tapani was born in Iowa (I think) but went to high school in the UP. Dick Pole is a UP native. The late George Brunet was. John Hiller -- a wonderful man who I had the pleasure of talking to recently -- is from Ontario but has lived in the UP for years.

The Upper Peninsula is part of Michigan because the State got it from Ohio in exchange for Toledo. Seriously. (David Laurila)
2009-10-05 16:00:00 (link to chat)The Reds dumped the pitching coach, Dick Pole. Next I'm sure they'll finish rearanging the deck chairs. AFTER THAT, what are the 3 things they should do this offseason?
(Browning Nagle from Cinti)
Willy Taveras needs to go, big time. Or at least only be used as a pinch-runner/defensive replacement. A push for a legit cleanup bat--Phillips is good but if he is your cleanup hitter...--would be good but I can ultimately see them only getting someone like Jermaine Dye, which wouldn't be awful but is certainly not a franchise changing signing. And lastly, let Stubbs, Bruce, Bailey, et al play the whole year. (Eric Seidman)
2008-02-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wait a tick, you're a fellow Michigander? Where did you go to school? Say eh to the U.P.
(murphy654321 from Waltham, MA)
You see, the hard line questions stop once they realize you're from the land of George Brunet, Dick Pole and Kevin Tapani. (David Laurila)
