BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)I imagine this could get difficult/complicated, but is it possible for the White Sox to package someone like Lance Broadway and Orlando Cabrera for Brian Roberts if the teams could somehow include a framework for a Cabrera extension in the deal? Alexei could then handle short for the remainder of the year. Thanks!
(Matt from Illinois's biggest state park (WI))
That's makes sense on some levels but I think they'd want a better second player beside Cabrera. (John Perrotto)
2008-01-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Christian Friedrich? I have seen some video and he does have a nasty curveball. Are the comparisons to Barry Zito fair, and how big of a concern are his walks?
(Tom from Atlanta)
I think Zito is sort of the natural comparison for a guy of Chris' caliber, with that nasty curveball and a solid-average fastball behind. Ted Lilly and Sean Marshall are the others I usually here in that category. But you're right, the key for Chris this year is going to be commanding his fastball and proving that it can be a weapon in the way that Lance Broadway's fastball has never been a weapon behind his curve. I hope to talk to Friedrich on the phone relatively soon, and when I do, you can bet I'll Unfilter it immediately. (Bryan Smith)
