BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-12-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any rumblings about where Pedro ends up? With the Mets out on Lowe it might make sense to bring back both Perez and Pedro.
(David from NJ)
My gut tells me Pedro ends up with the Pirates, where he could mentor the youngsters, including his cousin Denny Bautista, and be reunited with Joe Kerrigan. I just don't think there is going to be much of a market for him. (John Perrotto)
