DateQuestionAnswer
2013-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you and Rich Garces were trapped in a bottle, how would you escape?
(bradleyankrom from NYNY)
Depends on the size and type of the bottle. (R.J. Anderson)
2008-05-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bartolo Colon. Unlikely to stay healthy? Back and a bad man? Good for a dozen or so above average starts? What's your expectation?
(Nater1177 from Philly)
I'm intentionally keeping my expectations so low you need a shovel to find them, solely to avoid disappointment. He doesn't fit the fat man role the same way Rich Garces and David Wells used to. I need to see more fun out of my fat pitchers. (Marc Normandin)
