BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2018-04-05 20:00:00 (link to chat)I've been hearing that the reports on Miles Mikolas were pretty good. Could he end up as the biggest bargain of the off-season?
(Mr. Fister from Arlington)
there were so many cheap/discount contracts that I will say no. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looks like the Padres and Pirates just struck a deal. Jaff Decker and Miles Mikolas to the Pirates for first baseman/outfielder Alex Dickerson. Have any hot takes on the swap or the players?
(Chase from California)
It doesn't do anything for me on any level. (Jason Parks)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Between JD Martinez, Michael Fiers, and Miles Mikolas, how did Nova Southeastern not make the NCAAs in 2009?
(Dallas Comegys from DePaul)
Because they are a D-II school. Where's Kenny Patterson? Your name made me laugh, I hope that doesn't make me a douche. (Kevin Goldstein)
