BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any updates on how soon Hank Conger will be back? If soon, do you see him coming up quickly while Iannetta is on the DL?
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
Word is he should be back playing in a week and a half or so. As long as the Halos like what they see, I think he'll be in LA shortly after that. With the team needing to make waves, they can't be happy with Bobby Wilson as their catcher. (Derek Carty)
2009-07-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Angels just called up Sean Rodriguez and Bobby Wilson...no corresponding moves otherwise..mean anything?
(Hal from LA)
Don't they do something with Sean Rodriguez every fourth day? I wouldn't read into it. (Joe Sheehan)
