BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-05 15:30:00 (link to chat)Is Eric Bruntlett popular with the Philly faithful? I feel he's one of the few players in the modern game that brings real intangibles to the table. Of course, I know BPers don't believe in that sort of thing.
(Fred from Houston)
He isn't unpopular, I'll put it that way. I have an affinity for him. He is really a super-sub, especially given that he has been working to be a 3rd catcher, if needbe. (Eric Seidman)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game OneEvery time the camera cuts to Eric Bruntlett, I wonder which Civil War battle they'll be re-enacting today. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game One"Bill (New Mexico): Are you folks surprised that Manuel didn't DH Howard and let someone play first who can field the position?"

That player doesn't exist on this roster. Well, Eric Bruntlett, but if he wanted to do that he would have done it with Burrell.

It's kind of funny watching everyone run across the limitations of this roster. Wait until J.C. Romero has to face Evan Longoria.
(Joe Sheehan)
