BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does anything karmically balance those crappy strike calls on drew and Kotsay? I need to enjoy the Rays' victory guilt-free.
(Bill W from Brooklyn NY)
I think the fact that Kotsay was up there in the first place absolves the Rays. Although acquiring Kotsay for depth wasn't a bad idea (not that he helped), the idea to stick him at first base throughout the playoffs when Mike Lowell went down was an unmitigated disaster. I kept wondering if Jeff Bailey would have done better. (Steven Goldman)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)What should the Red Sox do with Charlie Zink and Jeff Bailey? These guys are putting up obscene numbers down in the international league, but both are past the prospect stage. Even though I fully believe that Zink at least is legit, I can understand that there are other guys in the sox system that look to have brighter careers. Can the Sox get something for these guys, or are they likely to leave as free agents?
(Rob from Brighton)
Zink's interesting, but I suspect it'll have to involve getting dealt as part of a package to a team desperately in need of a starting pitching, even though it would make sense of the Sox to look at him as an mop-up innings sponge (not that they need one) since they've already invested a roster spot in a knuckler-capable backup backstop. Heck, trade him to either Texas team, because I have to think people haven't entirely forgotten Joe Niekro or Charlie Hough.

As for Bailey, he's just the latest guy charged with keeping PawSox fans engaged. (Christina Kahrl)
