Your Questions Answered

I’m starting a new weekly entry series. Every Monday (starting this Monday) I’m going to post the answers to your *generic* questions to MLB players. There’s no guarantee as to how many players will answer, or which ones, but I’ll try to get as many to answer as possible.

So leave a comment with a generic question that you’d like to have answered by some MLB players. From the ones that are submited, I’ll choose one to get players to answer throughout the week, and then post the answers each Monday, and ask for new questions. And so on, and so forth.

Does this all make sense? If so, leave a comment with your questions. I *may* just choose yours…….

UPDATE

Considering the fact that Monday is just three days away, I’m going to go ahead use Delia’s question.

Maybe I’ll get more questions submissions next week.
