BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who plays SS for the Orioles next year? I'm watching gameday right now and we've regressed all the way to starting Juan Castro over Brandon Fahey. It's rather comical.
(kf4ykd from DC)
It's like a horrible VH1 show, "The Flavor of LeMaster," with the former Giants shortstop forcing you to watch the player who most closely resembles him. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given a choice between Brandon Fahey, Luis Hernandez, Eider Torres, Alex Cintron, and that fat guy in Section 209 who would you make the Orioles' everyday shortstop?
(Drungo from SoMd)
What's Cal up to? (Joe Sheehan)
