Every week, MLBTR conducts a live chat with either Tim Dierkes or Ben Nicholson-Smith.  Most of the time, it's me, and the chat is held at 2pm central time on Wednesdays.  That's the plan for today.

All you have to do to participate is visit MLB Trade Rumors at any point during the hour-long chat and click the chat link.  Then you'll have the opportunity to put in your name and submit a question.

With thousands of questions streaming in, I am typically able to answer about 60 of them in an hour.  If you feel like your questions are being ignored, the reason is probably just the sheer volume.  If you'd like to improve your chances of having a question answered, avoid posting it repeatedly, complaining about how your questions or favorite team are being ignored, or asking something that has been well-covered in our articles.  Instead, submit a few interesting questions that can reasonably be answered without research.

It would kill two birds with one stone if we could submit chat questions prior to the actual chat. You get to see and pick through them beforehand (and thus answer more of them), and we don’t have to be free at 2 PM Central to ask something. Additionally, if questions are asked via Disqus, it affords an opportunity to see which questions are being “liked” the most, and thus worthy of answering.

Then it’s not really a chat.  Is it?  The part I like about chats is being able to respond to his answers or statements made by other posters.

Want to have your cake and eat it too, eh? My point was that it allows anyone to ask a question, even if he’s not free at that particular hour on that particular day.

I have a question that we can get the ball rolling….

Why does every person on the internet want to reinvent the wheel?
(Live Chat is just that live Chat)
