BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike what were your too 5 batting stances to imitate on the sand lot when you were a kid? You do the Julio Franco? The Andre Dawson straight leg? The Youkilis slide? The Craig counsel tower?...what should the kids be imitating from today's game?
(Classberg from Chicago)
I was a pitching guy when I was a kid. I loved emulating Fernando's crazy windup, Ron Guidry, and Tom Seaver. (Mike Gianella)
2011-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steven--have you ever given thought to whom would comprise a Platonic ideal pitching rotation? Lots of guys are textbook #1s--Koufax, Maddux, Big Train, Bob Gibson, et al, but what about the rest? Is there such a thing as a quintessential #2? When you think of a #4 or a #5, who is it?
(Jape from Portland)
It's fun to make lists and such, but this one is so wide open. Are we talking career or single season? If the latter, I would have guys like Ron Guidry '78 and Dwight Gooden '85 and other names that don't make the list of all-time greats. If we're talking about guys who were more than one-hit wonders, my list starts with Pedro Martinez and Lefty Grove. (Steven Goldman)
2011-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Seriously, what is going on with the Yankee decision makers and their ability to develop pitching? You'd think Kennedy's success elsewhere plus how Joba and Hughes turned out would be instructive.
(Rob Gee from Philly)
It's not something they've done within living memory for most people, so they get nervous and paranoid about how to handle young players. Under the Steinbrenner family ownership, they've gotten Ron Guidry, Andy Pettitte, Dave Righetti... It's not a long list, so they're inexperienced. (Steven Goldman)
2010-06-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather have a Ron Guidry type career, short with multiple Cy Young caliber years, or Jamie Moyer, okay to good for a long, long time?
(redsoxin2004 from Columbia, CT)
Me, I'd rather have the Moyer path, because I think that if I had the talent to play in the majors I would hang on as long as I can and wring every last drop out of my ability. That, plus I've always enjoyed the elder statesman role in certain situations. (Jay Jaffe)
