BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)A couple of questions about your interviews. Who's the nicest, genuinely nicest person you've interviewed? Who has been the most surprisingly candid with you? I enjoy your interviews, but sometimes the subject is well-skilled in not revealing anything or offending anyone. Thanks.
(GrinnellSteve from Iowa)
Far too many players are well-skilled in not revealing much, which is no big surprise given that they are often schooled to do so. The nicest person? That is difficult to answer. I will say that the most recent Q&A to go up, Cody Ross, is probably on the short list.

The most candid is also a difficult question. Off the top of my head, maybe Shea Hillenbrand? (David Laurila)
