BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)We've been (mildly) surprised by some Saves leaders in the first third of the season - Jeanmar Gomez, David Robertson among them. Who are your picks for surprising save contributions for the next few months?
(Yes Cheese from Cheese Nation)
Brad Hand if/when Fernando Rodney implodes and Jumbo Diaz, just because that's a fun name to write. (Mike Gianella)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance michael lorenzen gets a shot at the closers job?
(Katie from Natti)
Nope. Out of 141 starters who threw 100 innings last season, Lorenz ranked dead-last in DRA (6.42). A move to the pen seems inevitable, especially given the pitching prospects the Reds added in the second half of last year. At least for the immediate future, J.J. Hoover and Jumbo Diaz will get the first shot to close. (George Bissell)
