BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)What active player would you least want to face off against in a competitive game of Scramble?
(Sean from Twitter)
If you mean Scrabble, I feel like Charlie Furbush knows an obscene number of ridiculous words. If you mean Scramble...I don't know what you're talking about. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your top LOOGYs that I should target to snipe me some holds?
(GC from 90210)
Cingrani still available? Alex Torres, Brett Cecil, Justin Wilson, Charlie Furbush (Ollie Perez temporarily closing gives him more opps), Sean Doolittle, Robbie Ross, and Tim Collins (Paul Sporer)
2011-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Charlie Furbush's potential? 4/5 starter?
(James from Detroit)
Maybe . . . maybe a middle reliever. I'll at least say he's a big leaguer, which is an upgrade from times previous. (Kevin Goldstein)
