BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)RE: your point above about locking in your best pitcher to the ninth inning. That's why White Sox fans shouldn't get too worked up about Jenks right now. Putz and Thornton are being brought in for the tough situations in the 7th and 8th innings anyway.
(Clint from Chicago)
Exactly right, and exactly the example I like to use. The closer needs to be very good too, so I'm not saying that Lance Cormier should close ahead of Rafael Soriano or anything like that. This wouldn't be as much of an issue if someone brought back the two inning save. (Ken Funck)
2009-02-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)How do you see the Rays bullpen on opening day? Percy and Bradford put 7.5 MIL on the DL, do you believe that Lance Cormier or Derek Rodriguez will actually make the Rays 25 man roster?
(jlarsen from chicago, il)
I think they have options and you certain could do worse than having guys like Niemann, Hammel, Cormier and Rodriguez pitching long and middle relief. (John Perrotto)
