BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)I keep reading that Dee Gordon is very "raw"- I find it a bit strange that the son of a major leaguer could have that little baseball experience. Did he play a different sport growing up? Thanks.
(KRS from Chicago)
He didn't start playing baseball until high school, he was more into hoops initially. He also didn't have a very close relationship with his father until his mom passed way and Tom Gordon assumed custody. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the closer situation in Philly. Are we doomed with Lidge's knee injury?
(mikedee from Philly)
Lidge's knee injury is only part of the problem. Tom Gordon is the rest of it. He's an excellent relief pitcher when he's healthy, but he's as likely to break down as a $3 Rolex. Piling up more innings on him early on isn't a great recipe for keeping him healthy, and I don't like how thin the rests of that bullpen is. (Jay Jaffe)
