BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-04-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it time for Scott Sizemore to play in DET and for Will Rhymes to be "scrappy and gritty" someplace else?
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
I thought opening day was that time. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-03-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)As you said you would target MIF and Catchers for reserve rounds in NFBC. Would you take Will Rhymes over Brandon Allen?
(bfitzge3 from Upstate NY)
No. Rhymes has no offensive value. He's the AL version of Skip Schumaker. (Cory Schwartz)
