BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you see the Milton Bradley saga getting resolved?
(Guancous from Silver Spring, MD)
Bradley will be involved in a four-team trade in which the Royals get Carl Everett, the Cubs get Albert Belle, and the Rangers get Charles Johnson's wife. (Eric Seidman)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)So lately I've been thinking a lot about Livan Hernandez. I guess I wonder how history will remember him -- how will future generations of baseball historians conceive of a pitcher whose contribution was primarily his ability to pitch a ton of innings? I propose that his inning-eating ability will really stand out in retrospect. What do you think?
(g-mo from bumpus)
I don't think history will remember Hernandez for that so much as for the 1997 Marlins, the 34-inch strike zone in Game Six against the Braves, and Charles Johnson still not believing that pitch was a strike. (Joe Sheehan)
