DateQuestionAnswer
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your #1 target as the Phillies' LOOGY, free agent or otherwise?
(Bill Baer from Philly)
Dennys Reyes. Oh wait, nevermind. Scott Eyre still retired? How about the JC Romero from 2007? I think Joe Beimel would be a good fit. I'd also take a flier on Ron Mahay. Realistically, I'd be more comfortable forgoing the idea of a LOOGY and just building a solid overall bullpen. And as iffy as Romero looked last year, he still finished 2nd to Boone Logan in my 2010 LOOGY Awards, which measured the numbers lefty batters produced against a lefty specialist, relative to how those same batters performed against all other lefty pitchers. Maybe bring him back at a bargain price. (Eric Seidman)
2008-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc, what do you think the Red Sox should do to improve their bullpen this season?
(Peter from Beyond the Boxscore)
Stop using everyone except for Papelbon until they can trade for Ron Mahay. That bullpen makes me a sad panda. (Marc Normandin)
