DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)If it was the 18th inning and you needed to use a position player to pitch, would you use the guy who would throw the best (like Andrelton Simmons, if you were the Braves) or the guy you cared least about (like Ramiro Pena, if you were the Braves)?
(Jackson from Stockton)
If it's the 18th inning, everyone's tired and I just want to go home so if I'm the Braves I'm using Luis Avilan again. (Matt Sussman)
