DateQuestionAnswer
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who gets the high lev situations in the Toronto pen? John Perrotto reports Frasor perhaps heading to the Cubs.
(Neko Case from Toronto)
Which I'd find heartily amusing, since we all know where Kevin Gregg is at present. I'd anticipate that there will be some element of job-sharing involved, with Gregg, Frasor (if he's there), and Scott Downs all getting save opportunities. Later in the year, I wouldn't be surprised to see Josh Roenicke cadging save ops. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Zach Stewart, Josh Roenicke, and Edwin Encarnacion...what is your opinion of the trio?
(Shawn from Winnipeg)
I have no idea what to make of Encarnacion any longer, but he's worth taking a flyer on. Stewart might be a high-leverage reliever pretty soon, but he has some command issues. The main gain here is whatever financial savings occur. (Joe Sheehan)
