DateQuestionAnswer
2008-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see anybody currently unemployed playing in the CWS getting an invite to ST?
(Tommy from TheStatPack)
I don't know if anyone has Ramon Ortiz yet, but he might have bought himself an invite with last night's performance (which I shamefully didn't give sufficient props to in my column). It was a gutsy performance. (Derek Jacques)
