DateQuestionAnswer
2008-12-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on the Rule 5 Draft in general? Surprises?
(Ben F from California)
I like the Mets adding Darren O'Day and Rocky Cherry to possibly flesh out the bullpen. That was a good move at a low price. (John Perrotto)
2008-12-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Did the Orioles make any attempts to fix the situation at SS? You think they'll miss Rocky?
(Corkedbat from Dallas)
They are on the verge of signing Cesar Izturis to play shortstop. While I love his name, I don't think Rocky Cherry will be missed. (John Perrotto)
