BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Blue Jays closer next season, BJ Ryan, Scott Downs, Dustin McGowan or other?
(Bill from Toronto)
Ryan. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dustin McGowan--when will he be ready?
(jaysfan from Toronto)
The Jays say that he's starting a throwing program and is on track for a May return. I think we'll have to see where he is early in spring training, but there's a lot of things that can go right or wrong between now and his return. (Will Carroll)
2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Jays contenders if they would have started the season with Gaston and giving Lind more playing time or is this just a nice looking winning streak that has happened late in the season?
(Ted from at the pool)
Lind's presence over the dessicated remains of Shannon Stewart or Kevin Mench/Brad Wilkerson certainly would have improved matters, but there's a lot of other factors that would have had to go right - better health (and fortune) from Dustin McGowan, Shaun Marcum, B.J. Ryan, Vernon Wells, Scott Rolen... wow, that's a lot right there. A.J. Burnett avoiding his mid-season cold streak, too. Given some better luck in breaks like those, they coulda been contenders, but as it is, it's just a nice-looking winning streak. Their potential as spoilers (7 games vs. Boston as Joe from Tewksbury mentioned above) probably shouldn't be underestimated. (Jay Jaffe)
