BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Eric O'Flaherty keeps the Oak closing gig until Sean Doolittle comes back?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
It sounds that way, although I'd be wary of the A's playing matchups. On the other hand, it sounds like they went O'Flaherty because they felt their set-ups were comfortable in their roles and didn't want to rock the boat. (Mike Gianella)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)Which trade/FA signing that you were in on are you most proud of?
(stydings from NJ)
Frank involves all of our front office and scouts in all of the major decisions so it's never a case of "we got this player because of this person." I am proud of all the moves we have made, but it's nice to see career minor league players like Constanza or Brooks Conrad get an opportunity here in Atlanta when they were signed as minor league free agents. I'm also proud of some of the guys we have found on the waiver wire, acquiring the likes of Eric O'Flaherty and Cristhian Martinez for $20,000 per claim. (John Coppolella)
