BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's the green room like at MLB Network, and do you ever get distracted by all those background monitors while shooting Clubhouse Confidential?
(Ken M from Honolulu HI )
For me, the "green room" has always been Kevin Millar's empty office. I don't get distracted by the background monitors, but I always have a hard time telling which camera I'm supposed to be staring and smiling engagingly at. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-04-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin Millar, he has brain damage right? Or does he just act that way when he's on MLB Network?
(Tony from Albuquerque)
Well, he is a self-proclaimed idiot, right? Complaining about him spouting ridiculously incorrect or incoherent opinions on TV would be like complaining about a dog licking himself in public. You can't change a creature's innate nature, even if you stuff that creature in a suit and point a camera at it. (Ken Funck)
2009-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)While I'm usually a JP supporter I'm growing tired of his inability to fill the LF/DH hole. Shannon Stewart, Brad Wilkerson, Dave Dellucci, Kevin Millar and Russ Adams clearly aren't the answer so what would you do?
(Bill from Toronto)
I think he absolutely had the right idea with Travis Snider at the outset of the year, but it hasn't worked out yet. He didn't hit in ~100 PA, he had some back problems, he's missed a month. He's only 21, so it's far too early to give up hope that he can be the long-term solution there. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is the point Kevin Millar and Jose Bautista on the Blue Jays (ostensibly as lefty mashers) when the team only has 2 hitters on the active roster that bat from the left side to begin with?
(Aaron from YYZ)
It's called "playing the percentages." It's what good managers do.

Having some righty bats to play for Overbay, Snider and Lind wasn't a terrible idea, and Bautista brings some flexibility. The Jays' bench isn't their problem, although rostering John McDonald and never using him leaves them with 24 players. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it safe to say that the bottom of the ninth inning of the 2004 ALCS was one of the great turning points in Yankees history? The greatest closer of all-time, Mariano Rivera, is facing the bottom of the Red Sox order just three outs away from completing a crushing 4 game sweep of their arch rivals. If he closes the deal, the Yanks displatch the Cardinals with relative ease, A-Rod becomes a god in NY, Terry Francona is fired, and the revitalized Yankee juggernaut lords over the shell-shocked A.L. for the next fours years. Or Rivera walks Kevin Millar and...
(rich from nj)
It's certainly a big one. There was a subtle change after that, too, that was harder to see - we pointed it out in Mind Game (still a damn fine book, forgive me for saying so) -- the "patient" Yankees went to hacking after that game. Their selectivity just went out the window. (Steven Goldman)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Christina, thanks as always for the chats and TA's. What do you think of the O's position (or posturing) of hanging onto Roberts and Sherrill through the deadline? I realize the "magical .500" may help with the fan-base..still, not sure if their value can be much higher.
(Tim from DC)
It's always hard with family-run outfits, because while I'd normally say ".500 will come with sensible long-term management," Andy MacPhail has to be only too aware of how many interoffice assassinations litter this franchise's recent past. If they're serious about themselves, and really dominating their market, they'll hold out for the best deal possible. Roberts isn't a rental, he's already under contract for 2009, and that's worth something (just as Teixeira was last year, for the same reason). Similarly, Sherrill's under control through arbitration for two more seasons; that's worth a lot the way reliever pricing is going. So it's worth it to the Orioles to listen, but it's also worth it to them to walk away, because these two will still have value in trade this winter, next spring, or at next year's deadline. Jay Payton and Kevin Millar, not so much, so if they can find takers, they should be in a giving mood. (Christina Kahrl)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2010-07-13 16:30:00All-Star GameOkay, I'll give him this: Kevin Millar isn't HORRIBLE in front of a camera. Better than Jeter, at least. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-07-13 16:30:00All-Star Game"Red Carpet Show" repeat on MLB channel, showing a parade of ballplayers at Disneyland."Fans just can't get enough" says the host. Actually, as a frequent Disney visitor, the PITA about parades is that they crowd up the sidewalks and you can't navigate to any of the rides. OTOH, Kevin Millar remarking that "It's a Small World" is "Dustin Pedroia's house" is kind of funny. (Steven Goldman)
