BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)So which active player makes you most happy?
(Pharrell from Virginia )
Ben Paulsen. Among star-types: Sal Perez, Sean Doolittle, Dellin Betances. (Sam Miller)
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for chatting with us, Cory. Two questions for you: 1. Will MLB.tv have any televised broadcasts during the postseason? 2. Should I take Ben Paulsen at all seriously, this month or as a sleeper next spring?
(Orion from CA)
Thanks, glad to! Yes, MLB.TV will cover the entire postseason, and I believe with some new features to keep an eye out for. And for Paulsen, his minor league numbers were so-so and Morneau is under contract for another year, so I wouldn't get too excited. (Cory Schwartz)
