DateQuestionAnswer
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please, please, please tell me that the Rays will remove Reid Brignac, Elliot Johnson and possibly Sean Rodriguez for better Utility IFers.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Is Geoff Blum still available? And on that note, I must take my leave. (Geoff Young)
2009-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why can't the stros find Keppinger more PAs?
(murphy654321 from Boston)
Because you just can't keep Kaz Matsui and Geoff Blum out of the lineup. Pardon the sarcasm. I'm a big Keppinger fan and would love to see him get a chance to play every day. (John Perrotto)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would Bonds be a good fit for the Stros the rest of this season?
(Alex from Houston)
They're playing Ty Wigginton in left field, and Geoff Blum is getting the extra ABs. Forget any kind of warmup, sign Bonds, start him tonight, and he'd be better than those choices.

But winning doesn't matter as much as perpetuating the myth. Say, did anyone see that Paul Lo Duca is back in the majors? (Joe Sheehan)
