BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who among the other first timers got at least one vote?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Vinny Castilla 6, Tim Salmon and Bill Mueller 5, Brad Radke 2, Javy Lopez and Eric Young 1. Wasted votes, all of them. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of stupid comps, is there a little bit of Tim Salmon in Mike Trout?
(Comic from Relief)
And if you put him on the mound, does he remind you of Angels farmhand Robert Fish? (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)FYI, next couple of HOF classes are thin. Best candidates for 2011 are Bagwell, Raffy Palmeiro (zero shot), Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Larry Walker. Best candidates for 2012 are Bernie Williams, Tim Salmon and....I dunno, Carl Everett? Rick Helling?
(El Angelo from elangelo@gmail.com)
The 2012 class is thinner than prison gruel. Honestly there aren't five guys among this lot who would get more than a single paragraph out of me in the JAWS series:

Edgardo Alfonzo, Pedro Astacio, David Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Vinny Castilla, Scott Erickson, Carl Everett, Jeff Fassero, Alex S. Gonzalez, Danny Graves, Rick Helling, Dustin Hermanson, Jose Hernandez, Brian Jordan, Matt Lawton, Javy Lopez, Bill Mueller, Terry Mulholland, Jeff Nelson, Phil Nevin, Brad Radke, Joe Randa, Tim Salmon, Ruben Sierra, Jose Vizcaino, Bernie Williams, Eric Young (Jay Jaffe)
2008-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)You never really answered my question. Most guys in the majors have ability, and obviously his success depends on him not threatening to murder people. But if he stays out of trouble, what kind of player is Dukes going to be?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
His profile looks a bit like Tim Salmon--good player, knack for walks, not a superstar. (Derek Jacques)
