BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm not sure if my question got left off the pre-chat queue, so I'll ask again (paraphrased): If flags fly forever, why are GMs reluctant to part with prospects in return for a difference-maker? As a Red Sox fan I'm perfectly fine with trading Hanley Ramirez, superstar, for Josh Beckett, star, plus a World Series title. I know people still remember Bagwell for Larry Andersen, but it seems like giving up a top prospect for someone like Roy Halladay would be worth it.
(Dr. Wayne Pitcher from Castro Valley, CA)
I don't disagree, but I think the market's over-corrected as a result of finance-minded conservatism. (Christina Kahrl)
