having said all that santos still worries me. how does someone square up to your high fastball and hit it out for a homerun like that? your suppose to blow them away with the high heat.

even with our lacking offense i felt we still should have won the games yesterday. that maicer/EE error cost us. morrow hasn't been a model of consistency so it was unfortunate we couldn't capitalize when he did pitch a good game.

I rather see David Cooper hit than Lind. At least Cooper can get base hits, Lind can't do shit

Not that good defensively, strikes out far too much and hits for a shit average. Unbelievably inconsistent. I will say though that i dislike Rasmus and Lind more so.

It's not hate. Offensive stats are great and all but that's not the end all (+ his average was .233 so not anything special). Calling a game is key for any catcher. Did Arencibia look great being paired with the knuckleball Dickey?

catchers aren't needed for average, theres only a few like Posey and Mauer

I'll take a slugging catcher that provides 20-25 homers and 70 rbi's over a .290 catcher that just slaps the ball any day.

In his defense it's not an easy task when you're not used to catching that. Trust me.
