BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's more "tragic": that Barry Bonds was a sure-fire HOFer without the PEDs but did them anyway because he's a sociopath, or that Shoeless Joe isn't in the HOF?
(richardkr34 from Saint Paul, MN)
I don't think he used PEDs because he was a sociopath.

I really don;t care about Shoeless Joe Jackson. (Jason Parks)
2011-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mr. Goldman!!! Q: How did Joe Jackson throw a World Series with a .375 avg. and no errors? A: He made lackadaisical plays that allowed runners to advance; he saved the hits for when his team had a big lead; and he held up at third at times he possibly could have scored. I'm just putting this out there.
(G-MOTA from Bumpus Midwest)
There's no doubt he was in on the fix, so what he specifically did is kind of irrelevant. The play by play suggests his crimes were committed on defense. I don't like the "saved the hits" idea because it suggests a batter can hit on demand. (Steven Goldman)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these players in their feasibility to enter the MLB Hall of Fame someday: 1. Shoeless Joe Jackson 2. Pete Rose 3. Mark McGwire 4. Barry Bonds 5. Roger Clemens 6. Sammy Sosa 7. Alex Rodriguez
(UCBravesKing from Covington, KY)
I think A-Rod before any of the rest, because his usage will be seen as a dalliance and the bulk of his career is so impressive. The same, to a lesser extent, can be said of Clemens and Bonds, but the weight of his usage is so much heavier with the ongoing lawsuits, the Congressional testimony, etc. ALL the steroids candidates will benefit from some moment TBD when we have a better understanding of the impact of steroids on production, because just about everything you see is supposition. (Steven Goldman)
