DateQuestionAnswer
2010-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, what is going to go wrong next for Angel Guzman? Rough year. Any chance he gets back to how he pitched last year eventually? Surgery or rehab?
(Murphy from My Law)
Sadly, I don't think there will be a next. All indications are that Guzman's done. I hope those are wrong. (Will Carroll)
