DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)With what's going on between Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin in the NFL right now, what would happen in MLB if a similar situation happened
(Chris from Miami)
It's not so different from what happened with Mel Hall and Bernie Williams, is it? And I assume the same thing would happen: the young, talented player who's the target of the hazing stays, and the veteran who's not so good goes. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)In an entertaining BBTF thread in memory of Oscar Azocar, someone wonders if the Mel Hall/Jim Leyritz/Pacual Perez Yankees will hold the prison "time-served" record for one team. Your thoughts as resident Yankee historian?
(ddanyc from NYC)
I wrote a little thing about Oscar for the Pinstriped Bible today, but I got it in just before we kicked off here and I'm not sure that it's up yet... He was a terrible player, albeit one with great ability to make contact. Ultimately that's ALL he could do. That said, he got hot when he first came up, before pitchers figured him out, and for two weeks he was part of a little flurry of hope that the 1990 team had, not that it would compete, but that the organization had a future. That feeling didn't last, but he was eager, he was trying, he was accomplishing something, however briefly, more than you could say for the rest of that team. Ironically, he became part of what was already killing that offense, a complete refusal to take a walk. ...And I see that the PB is now up, at http://www.myyesnetwork.com/12478/blog/2010/06/15/grander_plans. But don't go anywhere yet! I'm not done with you! (Steven Goldman)
