BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)This will be the first of many questions since I am occupied and bored. The other day on DFW radio Evan Grant said Keone Kela could be one of two guys(along with Chi Chi) who could debut in 2015 at some point. Agree/disagree and defend.
(Samuel from UTA Radio Studios)
I agree. Both pitchers need a bit of refinement in AAA before facing major league hitters, but I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of them were up by the end of the season. (Kate Morrison)
2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which trio of hard throwing relievers would you prefer? Keone Kela? Cam Bedrosian? R.J. Alvarez?
(Ian from NYC)
Which trio or which of the trio? I'll just rank them: Kela, Alvarez, Bedrosian. (Kate Morrison)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wilmer Font, Keone Kela or Matt West?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
Kela has better stuff, which is pretty crazy to think about. (Jason Parks)
