BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-23 12:30:00 (link to chat)What is your favorite BP annual comment ever? Or what are your top few if you can't pick.
(BC from Sadtown USA)
I'm slightly nervous, from your Name, that this question was submitted intentionally by Ben Carsley, but my very favorite is probably the 2015 comment for Moises Sierra, written by Ben Carsley:

"Moises Sierra's modest power and fairly high strikeout rates have reduced him to a Quad-A player, causing a whole new generation to associate "Sierra missed" with disappointing pop." (Sam Miller)
2015-03-12 15:00:00 (link to chat)Best comment in the annual?
(Mo Betta from Hoodhaven)
I actually haven't read much of the book yet because of school. The Moises Sierra one is an all-timer. Adam Sobsey (who I shared the Jays chapter with, quite intimidating writing next to him) wrote Matt Boyd with the perfect changeup metaphor. Of the ones I wrote (not that you asked): Jonathan Gray, LaTroy Hawkins. (Andrew Koo)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Moises Sierra. Regular or 4th OF?
(sportznut from Clinton Township, MI)
Barely a 4th OF. (Mark Anderson)
