BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, I am shocked that Brian Burres and Bryan Bullington didn't work out.
(JP from Toronto)
Yeah, but you cut bait quickly. That was good. You sure have a lot of pitchers up there. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know it's early but aren't the Jays shooting themselves in the foot by starting Brian Burres when they have Cecil, Mills and Fabio Castro waiting in the minors? I realize the first two aren't lighting the world on fire but does any major league team, let alone one that was in first, have any business giving Burres starts?
(Bill from Toronto)
Agreed 100 percent. If the Blue Jays are serious about making a run this year then they can't be messing around with guys like Brian Burress. Any of the other three would have been better choices, regardless of what they are doing at Las Vegas right now. (John Perrotto)
2008-02-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)First overall pick in 2009? Don't forget about us! If Bedard/Roberts are traded our second best hitter is Luke Scott and our fourth starter is Brian Burres.
(Orioles from Baltimore, MD)
Good point. This could be like the 1979 World Series again. Only the exact opposite. (Joe Sheehan)
