DateQuestionAnswer
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Would Felipe Lopez to Baltimore actually solve their SS problem? Or will his "defense" give up as many runs as his bat adds?
(david from dc)
His bat wouldn't add all that many runs; it's not a solution, it's a patch, and the Orioles already have that in Alex Cintron. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Between Freddie Bynum, Alex Cintron and Luis Hernandez, do the Orioles have a player who can win the starting shortstop job, or should they be shopping?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Shopping: there are no answers in that group. Although what they should really be doing is scouting high school and college shortstops to pick one up in the draft, because none of their top 14 prospects (according to Kevin Goldstein) are middle infielders, either. (Caleb Peiffer)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given a choice between Brandon Fahey, Luis Hernandez, Eider Torres, Alex Cintron, and that fat guy in Section 209 who would you make the Orioles' everyday shortstop?
(Drungo from SoMd)
What's Cal up to? (Joe Sheehan)
