DateQuestionAnswer
2009-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What about the Twins trading garbage for Joe Nathan, Liriano and AJ Pierzynski? That was a pretty bad trade if memory serves.
(bctowns from Tradesville, USA)
I think you mean trading Pierzynski for Nathan, Liriano and Boof Bonser. Also in the picture, but tempered by Liriano's crash and burn and Bonser's injuries and subsequent suckitude. Nathan is statistically the equal of Mariano over the past six years, minus the postseason success. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)How crazy are the Mariners for pulling back Washburn because Minnesota was 'only' offering Boof Bonser?!
(Aaron from YYZ)
You can take the Bavasi out of the ballclub, but not the Bavasi-ism, I guess. There's something sort of sad about a team that overvalues its mediocrities, but it also explains a lot about how they got there. (Christina Kahrl)
