DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)George, Thanks for the chat!! What's the story with Carson Smith?? Does he have the stuff to be our closer??
(Sam from Seattle)
Why did you trade Carter Capps? Seriously, I love that guy. I was at Fenway when he came into the game for the Marlins to face Xander with the bases loaded a few weeks back and I lost it. People around me were looking at me funny wondering why I was so excited until they saw him pitch. So...Carson Smith...Yes he can close it's that simple. Rodney is done no matter what you have to figure at the end of the year so long-term, he's the guy. I liked Dominic Leone last year, but he just completely lost it. (George Bissell)
