BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)What does Matt Albers have to show in order to make the Red Sox roster as a reliever out of spring training?
(dawson950 from cape cod)
Hey, if the Sox are going to pick up Scott Atchison's option and give him a shot, the bar isn't set that high. He just has to not suck, and hope none of the other guys who are fighting for one of the last bullpen spots puts up big spring numbers or an impressive new pitch. (Marc Normandin)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've heard that Colby Lewis has returned from Japan. Think anyone picks him up?
(Ira from North Texas)
Maybe; it's not quite like my flying to Europe and telling the Bundesliga I'm available, after all. But he's 30, and he's gotten mauled in the majors. I'd take the suggestion made by Scott Atchison's similar return, and the barely-above-minimum deal that he got from Boston. (Christina Kahrl)
