BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, do you thing Rice would be the worst BBWAA choice ever? I think he might be better than Brock, but Brock had enough mitigating circumstances (3000 hits, stolen base record, 3 really good world series) that it is sort of understandable.
(djackson from New York)
He's better than Bruce Sutter and a little bit better, I think, than Tony Perez. The BBWAA has some older weird picks, too. I think Herb Pennock is their nadir.

Brock has markers Rice doesn't. (Joe Sheehan)
