DateQuestionAnswer
2015-01-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the Twins new pitching coach Neil Allen?
(Marlins88 from MPLS)
Don't know much about him, but looking forward to his handling of the staff in 2015. (Doug Thorburn)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe Posnanski wrote a great column a few years ago about Jeremy Affeldt and how he went from great SP prospect to middling middle reliever. I can't find the column online now, but I think of it every time I see Joba. Sad.
(DrManhattan from NYC)
When I look at Joba, I think of guys from my youth like Ted Power and Neil Allen, pitchers who were sometimes pretty successful but never great, and spent their entire careers being jerked from the pen to the rotation because no one could ever decide what they really were. (Steven Goldman)
