BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Jody Gerut in Milwaukee mean less ABs for a struggling Corey Hart? Or is this just a depth move?
(Chris from Austin, MN)
Well, I know Chris Duffy was on the roster, so this is better. I could see Hart losing some time. The Brewers have been so very right-handed the last few years; adding Gamel and Gerut would help that a lot. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)I am presenting an opportunity for you to wax poetic on the accomplishments of one Nate McLouth. Go!:
(Stephen from Manayunk)
The misspent youth
of Nate McLouth
Could never really linger
He'd get to swing
His bat would sing
And give Chris Duffy's destiny the finger (Christina Kahrl)
