BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are you as excited as I am with the Brewers recent infusion of bullpen talent?
(Jeff from Topanga)
I think it's a matter of relative improvement. The Brewers have been getting by for so long by retreading journeymen--Brian Shouse, Todd Coffey, Claudio Vargas, Mark DiFelice--that seeing actual upside-oriented prospects like Axford or Braddock enter the picture certainly brings new meaning to the term 'sweet relief.' How effective they are is something we'll have to see, but it all beats Jeff Suppan. Not that everything doesn't beat Jeff Suppan, but you know what I mean. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)It's killing us Mets fans watching Jerry make horrible strategic decisions every day (re: bullpen usage, lineups, bunting, etc.) and directly losing games as a result. Can you think of a manager ever having been fired for incompetence in in-game managing, as opposed to general incompetence (i.e. team is losing too much)?
(Dan from Brooklyn)
Ned Yost's summary execution in September 2008 -- over the mess he made out of the improper usage of LOOGY Brian Shouse -- comes to mind, as does the mess Trey Hillman made out of Gil Meche's start over the weekend. I linked both of those in today's Hit List bit on the Royals. Sleep tight, Dayton Moore. (Jay Jaffe)

Huh?

I love it when Manuel does this, by the way. Go Utley/Victorino/Howard, you lose NOTHING and make life hard on Brian Shouse. Why is this so difficult?
