DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank for the rest of the season: Justin Masterson, Carlos Villanueva, Ervin Santana, and Wade Davis
(nubber from tx)
He certainly won't maintain a 0.64 ERA, but I've like Carlos Villanueva for a while. So, I'll say Villanueva, Santana, Masterson, Davis. (Daniel Rathman)
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should I go to the Jay/O's game tonight or watch Super 8 instead?
(Ron from Toronto)
That's a tough one, Ron. I saw Super 8 a couple nights ago, and I wasn't impressed, even though I was definitely the target audience and genuinely looking forward to it. Like Roger Ebert, I felt that the movie sort of fell apart after the first hour. Ebert still liked it, but I found it quite forgettable.(To paraphrase Darth Vader, the Ebert is more forgiving than I am.)

Then again, this isn't an Orioles home game, so if the other option is making a trip to Rogers Centre to see the long-awaited showdown between Chris Jakubauskas and Carlos Villanueva, you might want to consider taking in a talkie. How much are movie tickets in Toronto? (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christina - if given the opportunity, do you believe that Carlos Villanueva is capable of succeeding in the closer role long term? How about Evan Meek in Pittsburgh?
(huckyoda from New York)
Long-term? No, I don't really think so, but that's not an indictment of him as much as I just don't see him fooling enough people enough of the time to really last in the role. But as a single-season fix or as a transient (a la Kevin Gregg), he could pan out just fine. Meek has to contend with the expectation that a wild guy built a bit like a fire hydrant isn't really what most people expect, but I could see him being a poor man's Rod Beck for a season or two, given the opportunity. (Christina Kahrl)
