2008-02-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)I really enjoyed the interview with Glenn Williams. Getting that opportunity with the Twins a couple years back was fun to watch. I've heard he has a book coming out sometime. Any knowledge if this is true, and if so, any details?
(russadams from St. Cloud)
Thanks. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

I recall reading that someone has the rights to his life story -- I forget where. So it wouldn't surprise me if a book is in the works.

Personally, I'm rooting for Glenn NOT to make it back to MLB. He has a record that may never be broken. (David Laurila)
2008-02-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Love the Q&As. What answer to a question you've asked surprised you the most?
(Stan from Chicago)
I'm not sure that any one question stands out, but this is a good time to mention a few upcoming Q&As.

Following up on the Glenn Williams, another Australian player is on tap. He's currently pitching very well for NSW in the Claxton Shield tournament.

Doug Thorburn of the National Pitching Association is coming up. Doug specializes in motion analysis.

A member of the Cardinals front office has agreed to do an interview.

A professional scout in the Cubs organization is on my radar. (David Laurila)
