DateQuestionAnswer
2009-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ronny Paulino: good enough to get 500 plate appearances on a championship team?
(mase1361 from Boston)
No. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)You didn't just compliment the Pirates, did you (re: Doumit)? In all seriousness, can they get anything of real value for Nady? Bay? Or should we all just start preparing to be disappointed in the return when they (hopefully) deal them?
(mak1277 from (state of shock))
I did indeed--I love that the new crew up top decided to take a page from the Indians playbook and take Doumit seriously as a catcher. The pity is that Ronny Paulino's better than the starters on a lot of teams, but even more so in the league where the pitcher hits, you have to maximize offensive production any way you can. Doesn't hurt that Doumit came to camp in great shape and seems to have sharpened up his catching skills, of course.

As far as the outfielders, never say never. I refer to "trading circles" at times, where you'll find that GMs who relate well to one another make deals among themselves. Last I checked, the Indians need outfielders, and I would suspect Mr. Huntington might just know a bit about who they have down on the farm. (Christina Kahrl)
