2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What minor league free agent most made you say Holy crap HE is still around? I remember watching a Mariner game in July at Yankee stadium and being floored when Mike Sweeney came to bat
(brian from brooklyn)
Mark Bellhorn got like 150 ABs in the Colorado system this year. That surprised me. Hell, Strickland, who I wrote about. I had no idea he was still around, and he's pretty good. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)One more quick question - do you see Mike Sweeney sticking with the A's, and if so, could he have an impact in the middle of the order as a potential platoon with Cust at DH?
(Nik from Boston)
No, and no. The A's could barely get away with carrying a DH platoon for part of 1987, and Cey seemed less done then than Sweeney probably is now. (Christina Kahrl)
