BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Eric Patterson, Donald Veal, and Sean Marshall for AJ Burnett.
(Jack from Chicago)
With the way he's pitching right now, would you really rather have Burnett over just Marshall? Reminds of the days when teams would clamor to get Tim Belcher every July. (Dayn Perry)
2008-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)How far has scouts opinions of Donald Veal fallen since last spring?
(ajmorriso from Chicago)
It's certainly fallen. He still has great stuff, but he needed to improve his command and instead it went backwards. Hard to bet against that kind of arm though. (Kevin Goldstein)
