BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)You are given the keys to the 2012 Dodgers ... who do you appoint as manager and GM?
(dianagramr from NYC)
GM: If I couldn't poach Kevin Towers from Arizona, I'd give Kim Ng a chance to test her mettle, though I'd be tempted to give Dan Evans another shot as well. He got a raw deal in L.A.

Manager: If I'm staying within the organization, I'd like to see what Tim Wallach can do. I might be tempted to see what Bobby Valentine could do in that job.

I'd also consider bringing back Jim Tracy... Just kidding. I'd blow up Dodger Stadium, salt the earth and move the team to Orange County before letting that happen. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-09-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us your best guesses on the new managers for next year by team?
(Jack from Boston)
Just guessing: Bobby Valentine to Seattle, Tim Wallach to Dodgers, Wally Backman to Mets, Ryne Sandberg to Cubs, LaRussa and Dusty Baker staying still, and Sharktopus to manage the Diamondbacks. Anyone else? (Jay Jaffe)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Big Papi done? Can you think of another player or two that has absolutely fallen off a cliff like he has? Steve Blass?
(PeterSchwech from Boston)
Tim Wallach after 1989, IIRC, although he had a bounceback. I know there are others, but I'm blanking. This chat may end abruptly, as I think there's a rugby match going on in the apartment above me. (Joe Sheehan)
