BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-09-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any idea why the Rays stopped shuttling relievers between Durham and St. Pete? Any credence to the idea that they didn't want all those guys collecting big league pay checks and service time if they weren't back down for 20 days?
(Sandy Kazmir from America)
I have no idea. Although, when your top alternatives are Kirby Yates and C.J. Riefenhauser, I guess there's no point inconveniencing others. (R.J. Anderson)
