DateQuestionAnswer
2013-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Resin bag or rosin bag? And how did Michael Kohn not freak out when a dude was charging towards him at full speed?
(Nathan Aderhold from Tustin)
"Rosin bag -- never resin." --SABR style guide: http://sabr.org/about/sabr-style-guide

I touched a rosin bag the other day and was shocked by how sticky it made my hands. I had to shake a player's hand a few minutes later and was very embarrassed. (Sam Miller)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sam, what player on the Angels, if any, will take the mantle from Jerome Williams as the player to have his name mispronounced for 2+ seasons? My money is on Michael Kohn.
(ericstephen from SB Nation LA)
Kohn is a good one. Jean Segura -- I could see people wanting to class it up and calling him Jean like John, like he's french. A lot of people have trouble with Bourjos as it is. Bourjos is like "museum" or "mirror," where it just doesn't quite sound right no matter how you say it. (Sam Miller)
