BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Twins are always resistant to change but surely something must be brewing. They are looking like a lock at losing 100 this year. I'm starting to miss the days of Ron Coomer and Denny Hocking.
(paulbellows from Calgary)
Uh oh. I broke the chat format... Really sorry guys. Is it all elongated and messed up for you all? (Sam Miller)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)I still remember when Ron Coomer was the Twins best player so why I am disappointed that they win 83 games every year?
(paulbellows from Calgary)
I blame the ghost of Cal Griffith. Maybe the organization has its own line of secret in-house successories, say, plaques that say "Timidly Strive for Complete Adequacy!" (Christina Kahrl)
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why do I keep reading about how much trouble the Yankees are in? Hasn't this been the story for three years running now? Slow start, fast finish. Do you see anything to make you think this year will be different from 2005-2007?
(Joe from Tewksbury, MA)
Yes. Everybody in the lineup, including Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada is a year older, and with the exception of Melky Cabrera and Robinson Cano, they're a year further away from their statistical primes, to say nothing about the fact that Cano looks pretty lost right now. The bench is weak even for a team that's done poorly in that area in the recent past. Seriously, I'd take Chili Davis, Darryl Strawberry, Luis Sojo and Ron Coomer circa 2008 over some of the stiffs they have lying around.

There's that, plus a weak pitching staff where the back of the rotation has been a thorough disaster thus far and the bullpen situation is considered so fragile that there's actually a question about whether they'll move Joba Chamberlain to a starting role this year. Add to that the fact that the AL East has gotten tougher and I think there's no longer any guarantee that the Yankees will contend, let alone win the division.

The other thing in play is the new manager. Through the early season debacles of the last few years, Torre was able to absorb the front office's slings and arrows and still give off a sense of calm confidence that things would eventually turn around. Girardi is protected from the barbs of Hank Steinbrenner at the moment -- his focus appears to be on forcing Brian Cashman out -- but Little Joe is the kind of guy who seems more likely to go Billy Martin bonkers as things get worse, and I don't think that's going to help. (Jay Jaffe)
