BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-03-12 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Arizona's catching situation really the worst in the league? Tampa Bay's seems pretty bad. So does Colorado's.
(Nick Jonas from Your Radio)
Yeah. The Rays and Rockies each have catchers from the Padres School of Catching now, which is interesting. I'd bet more on Rivera or Hundley than Tuffy Gosewisch. (Andrew Koo)
2014-04-04 12:00:00 (link to chat)Harry -- you're just the man I want to talk to: As Director of Technology, can you do something to improve BP's player search site? For example, if I'm looking for Carlos Garcia, your search engine takes me to a list of 12 Carlos Garcias, with the distinguishing characteristics being DOB, handedness, playing time, etc. Often, this is the kind of information I'm seeking, not information that helps me find the player. I end up clicking on half of there links before finding the Carlos Garcia I'm looking for. (Obviously this is not a problem when I'm looking up Tuffy Gosewisch.) Any thoughts?
(gerrybraun from San Diego)
yes, and I agree. One of the challenges of our exhaustive player db is making it easier to find guys. I think the first improvement we could make is to try and group the players by active/mlb/milb (in other words, rip off Sean Forman's bb-ref search results). Major overhauls won't happen quickly, but perhaps that's an idea we can implement sooner than later. (Harry Pavlidis)
