BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Now I'm feeling guilty for not saying anything Minnesota Nice about J.R. Murphy. I'll say this: he caught the full 16 innings of an epic showdown here against the Nats a few weeks ago, and at the end he was still running out grounders like a champ. Have you ever seen a team ride a catcher that hard? Almost six hours of squatting ... it seemed downright abusive.
(Twins Fan from D.C.)
Yeah. you'd need like three days off after that. Good grief. Don't know if that happens a lot. (Kenny Ducey)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the likelihood of J.R. Murphy getting to show much in the majors this year? It seems like the Yankees are going through a lot of catchers already, but he's still behind Romine, and McCann will be the starter.
(mockcarr from Arlington, VA)
He may get a cup of coffee this year, but without a major injury to McCann, Murphy isn't likely to get enough time to make much of an impact in 2014. (Mark Anderson)
