DateQuestionAnswer
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)In a league that counts holds, do you have any sleeper picks for non-closer relievers?
(Ron Kettle from Chicago)
Don't know if he's a sleeper anymore because George keeps talking about him but Liam Hendriks. I like Jim Henderson on the Mets if he's healthy. He has looked great this spring and was solid that one year with the Brewers before he got hurt. (Mike Gianella)
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)How will Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski respond to the Liam Hendriks trade the Royals just made?
(Curtis from Michigan)
By moving Danny Worth to Detroit and optioning him back to Triple-A. (Matt Sussman)
