DateQuestionAnswer
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Eddie Kunz as a starter? Do you like the idea and is there any chance this works out?
(John C from NY)
I guess it's worth a shot. I'm not especially optimistic, however. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-09-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Bobby Parnell or Eddie Kunz: Who was the better shot to be an internal closer option for the Mets next year? Are there any reasonable internal options? Would signing an extra starter and trying John Maine there make more sense?
(Meddler from Brooklyn, NY)
I think if either of those guys is closing for you, you have problems. (Kevin Goldstein)
