BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)I don't like much of what Jim Hendry has done this offseason but what confuses me is letting Henry Blanco walk? Are koyie Hill and Paul Bako the left handed hitting messiahs? What am I missing? Was Blanco too expensive? Is he injured?
(ced from chicago)
I can understand a desire to get a backup for Geovany Soto who's an opposite-side hitter, but yes, I'd rather have spent the money to retain Blanco than spend it on Bako (or Joey Gathright, for that matter). (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)The FA list form mlbtraderumors: Catchers Rod Barajas (33) - $2.5MM club option for '09 with a $0.5MM buyout Michael Barrett (32) Henry Blanco (37) - $3MM mutual option for '09 with a $0.3MM buyout Johnny Estrada (33) Toby Hall (33) - $2.25MM club option for '09 with a $0.15MM buyout Jason LaRue (35) Paul Lo Duca (37) Miguel Olivo (30) - $2.7MM club option for '09 with a $0.1MM buyout Mike Redmond (38) - $0.95MM club option for '09 with a $0.1MM buyout Ivan Rodriguez (37) David Ross (32) Jason Varitek (37) Gregg Zaun (38)
(Josh from MA)
That's um...ugly. And depressing, if you're a Sox fan, or a fan of anyone else without a quality catcher. (Marc Normandin)
