BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-02-16 16:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tom Brunansky the most underrated RF of the 1980s?
(Jake from St. Louis, MO)
There’s a good idea for a mini-series. The all-under-rated team of the 1980s, which is when I came of age in baseball fandom. Tom Brunansky vs. Jesse Barfield. Bert Blyleven vs. Dave Steib. The Astros rainbow warrior jerseys vs. the Brown and Gold Padres things from the early 80s. Bruno probably gets the start in right. (Russell A. Carleton)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Joe. What do you foresee in 2010 for Jay Bruce?
(Reds99 from California)
I'm willing to write off his '09 as an injury year, but I am concerned that he's going to be less and average and OBP guy and more a low-BA power bat with good defense. Tom Brunansky, maybe? (Joe Sheehan)
