BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-10-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)No comment on Nathan not starting the 8th against Tigers with 4-3 lead with 3-4-5 up? Or just not stating the obvious Gardenhire bone head move?
(Dr. Zaius from Norfolk VA)
I can live with it, and he did bring Nathan in later in the inning when it got bad. Guerrier isn't that bad a pitcher, and there's an argument for not blowing out Nathan unless you have to with a game the next night. I can see this one either way, unlike, say, letting Zach Miner end your season. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Free Press ran an article suggesting Zach Miner as a guy with potential as a setup/closer down the road. Does he have the stuff? Is there a comparable guy who's done something similar?
(Ben from Ohio)
I don't really see it, but remember, it's February (just barely), and it must have been a slow day in camp. As much as I bang on the mainstream media, the job of a beatwriter is a tough, tough job. (Christina Kahrl)
