2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Jason. I'm just wondering who, in your opinion, are the five scrappiest players in the majors today. Please use statistics to back up your assertions.
(Noah from NY)
Mark Ellis: almost died, definitely scrappy
Adam Rosales: runs real fast everywhere he goes, super scrappy
Josh Willingham: plays baseball despite having two-foot-long legs, mad scrappy
Jose Altuve: like 5'2", so scrappy
Munenori Kawasaki: has made a career out of being an Ichiro-stalker, hella scrappy

Stats are not scrappy. (Jason Wojciechowski)
2010-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why does Adam Rosales sprint around the bases when he hits a home run?
(Pete from Tampa)
I don't know. But whoever he was racing against, he won. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-03-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey John, Can you tell us anything positive out of the A's camp? Things seem redundant. This is their fourth year in a row with a Sheet-load of health questions going into the season.
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
Adam Rosales, who they got from the Reds for Aaron Miles, has been outstanding. There's some good news, though Ben Sheets pitching well would be better news. (John Perrotto)
