BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Eric Karabell alluded to BJ Ryan having elbow soreness that went beyond normal, but I actualyl hadn't heard that update until this morning. Is there anything to this? It seemed that BJ was probably pushing too hard for April 1 anyways and this might be his body telling him so.

I've heard sore as well, but no one I've spoken to seems too concerned ... yet. We'll have to see if Ryan can get back out there and throw this week or whether this is a real setback. He's not going to be able to be a normal closer and therefore you have to discount his value and pair him with Jeremy Accardo. (Will Carroll)
