BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)So here's the question I asked at the event in Philadelphia last week: What unlikely players, historically or currently, do you personally root for? Jay mentioned Saul Rivera, Steven followed Wayne Tolleson back in the day, for me it was Jacob Brumfield.
(Arthur from Philadelphia)
I was a big, big fan of George Williams, beyond TTO considerations, it was more basically because I sat near his brother and nephews and nieces one game, and I sort of liked the plucky little group of cheeseheads and their happiness over their uncle making it to The Show.

Active, I've become a bit of a silly/irrational fan of Peter Moylan, since he's got the foreign/exotic angle on top of being a side-armer. And as an A's fan, I'm perhaps goofy in that my current favorite Athletic is Kurt Suzuki. (Christina Kahrl)
