BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Nats have the worst bullpen in baseball history?
(Mike from D,C.)
There are ways to measure this, and I think that barring a substantial improvement, they will end up having the worst pen in history. It's not just that they don't have good pitchers; it's that they have no good pitchers *behind* the current staff, and it's possible they released their best one (Steven Shell). (Joe Sheehan)
2009-04-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)This only matters for fantasy - who gets saves for the Nats?
(Manny from DC)
Mock is next in line, and I don't expect that to go well. I was disappointed that they caught Steven Shell in the purge, as I think he's one of the better options. They'll circle back to Hanrahan by June 15 and he'll end up leading the team. (Joe Sheehan)
