BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you get a good look at any Giants this spring? Who would win a 60 yard dash-Gary Brown or Darren Ford?
(Josh G from Stockton)
I did. Brown is stupid fast. I wouldn't bet against him. (Jason Parks)
2010-06-07 18:30:00 (link to chat)Ugh....Gary Brown...I think I prefer a real hitter for the Giants. The Giants don't seem to have any luck turning out position players, so I would have liked them to select the guy with the most polished bat, Cox or Brentz or Gyorko. I just don't trust the Giants to turn a hacker into a decent player. I read his profile and just think...Eugenio Velez...Darren Ford, and then I throw up in my mouth a little.
(Gregjitsu from SoCal)
He's bigger, stronger and faster than those guys. You're making poor assumptions. (Kevin Goldstein)
