BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)A chat at the same time as KLaw? What are you trying to do to us? Honest opinion, does Broxton keep the job all year? I would love it if he came out and went 40-40 in saves. But his spring so far has not inspired confidence.
(Travis from VA)
I think it's a bit unfair to say Broxton's having a poor spring; he had one really bad game, and has been relatively fine otherwise. According to Rick Honeycutt, his velocity at this point in the spring is the same as it has been in recent years, and he'll get every opportunity to keep his job. It's really the best case scenario for the Dodgers that he does, because otherwise they have a highly paid and untradeable setup man and a hole in the 9th.

My honest opinion? He'll be good, not as good as he'd been previously, but good enough, and when he blows a save here or there - as even the best do occasionally - the uproar from fans and media will be akin to if he'd come out as a terrorist. (Mike Petriello)
