DateQuestionAnswer
2010-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Loved your Red Sox interview book. Ever look back at some of the minor league guys from that book who never made it to MLB and think "man, I wish [player X] had gotten further"?
(parkerd from SC)
Thanks, and yes, several of them. Conversley, Craig Breslow has clearly outperformed expectations, while Daniel Bard looked like a washout when the book came out. Aaron Bates made it to the show, which surprised many people. (David Laurila)
2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you name some players you have interviewed who seem to be well-read? I don't mean players who read, I mean players who have likely read and enjoyed Hemingway or Faulkner?
(marmour from Corvallis OR)
Fernando Perez is an obvious answer. Gabe Kapler, certainly. I'd have to think about it a little to really pull out a bunch of names, but not because there aren't a number of players who are well read. Many are. There are some smart guys out there and a lot of plane rides -- bus rides in the minors -- and they don't all read comic books. Craig Breslow. Kevin Slowey. As I type, I find myself wondering what Lastings Millege reads. He struck me as being thoughtful when I spoke to him last summer, so he may be into things far different than what his image conveys. (David Laurila)
