DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Brian Schlitter is an older guy in Des Moines having a really solid year. Stuff-wise, is there anything there? I was hoping the Cubs would take a look at him as a middle-reliever, but he's not on the 40-man and a September callup is looking unlikely. Anything to be intrigued by going into next year?
(sitrick2 from Minneapolis, MN)
not really (Harry Pavlidis)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ken, The Mets have lost three road games in the last five days in their opponents' last at-bat, while K-Rod only got work in mop-up duty on Saturday in a 6-1 win. Manuel says he's not wavering from his belief in the "no closer in tie games on the road" mentality, but we're falling out of wild card race on the backs of Ollie Perez and Fernando Nieve. What did we do to deserve this?
(Dan from Brooklyn)
While last night, as an example, TLR let Ryan Franklin work the 9th and 10th on the road in a tie game. And hey presto, they won! Meanwhile, Carlos Marmol pitched only the 9th and gave way to the immortal Brian Schlitter (whose one-line comment in the 2009 BP Annual is one of my all-time faves), who worked two innings and took the loss. I hate, just hate, stuff like that.

What did you do to deserve this? You chose the wrong hometown team to root for, I guess (something I, too, am guilty of). (Ken Funck)
