BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)A few years ago, Mike Bordick got traded by Baltimore to (coincidence) the Mets, then resigned with the O's. I don't know if he had a deal with the O's beforehand, but I do remember he wasn't happy being dealt. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/b/bordimi01.shtml
(dianagramr from NYC)
Ok, So I asked on this too (the benefit of working w/former front office types): The way you do it is: You explore the deal, but tell them straight out what may happen. It keeps the door open for the Bordickesque reture (Mike Ferrin)
2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, and the Michigan recommendations. You mentioned your Finnish ancestry, so I'm hoping you can give me some insight on the Upper Peninsula. Why in the world is it part of Michigan instead of Wisconin? Also, does Mike Bordick qualify as a yooper? I know he was born in Marquette, but I think he went to school in Maine.
(TheFlyingBernard from Acton, MA)
Bordick views himself as a Mainer, which isn't as good as being a Yooper, but Maine is cool, too.

Kevin Tapani was born in Iowa (I think) but went to high school in the UP. Dick Pole is a UP native. The late George Brunet was. John Hiller -- a wonderful man who I had the pleasure of talking to recently -- is from Ontario but has lived in the UP for years.

The Upper Peninsula is part of Michigan because the State got it from Ohio in exchange for Toledo. Seriously. (David Laurila)
2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)What should I expect from Jason Bartlett this year? Any comparisons?
(MattBishoff from DRaysBay)
I guess I sort of think of him as Greg Gagne with a little less power and a little more speed, but PECOTA names Ivan DeJesus (the original), Mike Bordick, and Alan Bannister as his top comparables in this year's book.

Basically, if you're watching Rays games, you'll get to see the best defensive shortstop in franchise history. (Christina Kahrl)
