BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)Why can't the A's retire Stewart's number just because it's the same as Fingers? The Yankees retired #8 twice. Once for Bill Dickey and then Yogi. #42 will be retired twice also whenever Mariano decides to hang it up.
(Swingingbunts from NY)
I suppose it depends on how Stewart and Fingers would feel about it. When Stewart came back at the very end of his career, he had to wear 35, but retiring that wouldn't seem right. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the Red Sox plans at the catcher position. The more time that passes, the more I believe Varitek will make a push to re-sign with the Red Sox at a hometown discount. As frustrating as it was to watch him attempt to tread water at the dish, wouldn't it serve the Sox well if they could lock up Tek to provide tutelage to his successor? Is Kottaras a legitimate candidate or is it worth it to trade Bowden/Buchholz to aquire Teagarden/Salty?
(nmhesketh from Cambridge)
Having watched Joe Girardi "tutor" Jorge Posada right out of his prime while hitting into a double play roughly every other at bat, I'm pretty down on the idea of tutelage. When in sports did anyone learn by watching? Let's let the coaches be coaches and the players be players. When the Yankees wanted to make Yogi Berra into a better catcher, they hired Bill Dickey to (as Yogi put it) "learn me everything he knows." They didn't play Dickey in front of him... I think the Sox will need Bowden and Buchholz too much to deal them off for catching help. (Steven Goldman)
