BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any reason to think that Javy Guerra will get save chances in the mess, that is the White Sox bullpen?
(Chuck Knoblauch from 1B line seats )
Maaaaaaaan, I didn't think Maikel Cleto would be a thing in that bullpen but he was, briefly. If Putnam implodes Robin might ball up and cry himself to sleep over the 9th, and then start giving the ball to Javy. (Mauricio Rubio)
2011-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Maikel Cleto and his callup to AA?
(Johnson from DeKalb)
Love the fastball, but think the whole package would work better in relief. (Kevin Goldstein)
