DateQuestionAnswer
2008-08-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Blue Jays' move of Bill Murphy to starter seemed to work well early, but Murphy now seems to be fading. Does he have a future as either a starter or reliever in the Majors?
(Dave from Petaluma, CA)
I think at most, he'll be some kind of up and down guy. (Kevin Goldstein)
