BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Scouts seemed to be pretty skeptical about Dan Hudson coming into the season. But he's tall, his fastball sits at about 93, and he's had a lot of success in the minors. What is it about him that doesn't give him #1 starter potential?
(Jake from San Francisco)
No. 1? How many No. 1s are there? 10? No. 1s have a plus-plus offering, usually two in fact. Hudson has none . . . and you are talking to a big fan of Dan Hudson. (Kevin Goldstein)
