DateQuestionAnswer
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite player to watch growing up?
(Tim from Austin)
Cal Ripken Jr. I wore #8 because of him. I played SS because of him. I changed my batting stance every hour because of him. (Jason Parks)
2010-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chances that Andy MacPhail cleans house in the next few weeks and fires both Dave Trembley and the coaching staff? As patient and un-knee-jerky as MacPhail is, eventually someone has to fall on his sword for a projected .500-ish team playing .300 ball, right?
(Drungo from SoMd)
MacPhail is indeed very patient but it is becoming increasingly likely that Trembley will soon be gone. Part of the problem, though, is that there is no obvious replacement. Cal Ripken Jr. does not want to manage. (John Perrotto)
