Our buddy Sky is hosting a hosting the first Beyond the Box Score chat at 2:00 p.m. today.
We're going to give this a try. And even if the only success is fulfilling my life goal of hosting a live chat, well, that's still a success! So mark it on your calendars and tell all your friends:
BtB Live Chat: Tuesday, February 3rd at 2pm EST
If you have a question about baseball statistics, a trade, or various other baseball topics, be sure to join in.
However, if your question is: did the Marlins improve in their number of wins by trading Josh Willingham and Scott Olsen and getting Emilio Bonifacio in return? I can answer that one: No.
Then again, Sky's answer may answer differently in that he it is possible he will project how the replacements will perform. I.e. addition through subtraction. But I'm guessing it will be hard to justify a fair return on Willingham and Olsen.
But you can always give it a try, you never know.
And yes, I'm going to keep harping on this trade until the regular season begins.
Anyway, click on the link and join in on the chat, if you are so inclined.
