I watched him catch last September and I saw nothing defensively that concerned me at all.
I think he will be fine fundamentally when his time comes. It's the rest that I assume needs some...
You may be right... Deduno has been getting relief appearances thus far... Yet.. He is getting multiple innings which indicates stretching him out as well.
Catching defense isn't just blocking... Throwing and framing.
The catcher is your QB. He faces the whole field... sees the whole field... He calls the cuts... He runs the show.
But even more...
My guess... We'd have to eat some salary to make it worthwhile. He was signed as a free agent... That means we paid more for him than others were willing or close to more than others were willing....
Right or Wrong... I always believe that Spring Training numbers don't carry a ton of weight because I think the Front Office and Manager have a pretty good idea who is going North with the club...

I just got home for a quick lunch and turned the game on. I noticed the Rays and decided (conditioned actually) to just pretend I was watching the Rays instead.
I've learned over the years that...

Nice work compiling this... I appreciate it.
It seems we had an unsupervised food fight take place. The food is stuck to the walls of this thread so I'm gonna lock it down.
Payroll is clearly a divisive issue.
I believe payroll...
It's late but up... These game threads are gonna be hit and miss during the pre-season.
I'm a strange guy... There is no doubt about that.
I seem to be a little off kilter because I simply refuse to get worked up over players that I know nothing about.
I was bummed over...

The baseball got less pretty as the innings advanced.
Take Care All!

I'm gonna watch Colabello take one deep and take off myself.

Like she has any control over that. :D

1 run in... 1st and third with two outs and the ball hasn't left the infield.

D matters... Especially with a team that isn't going to hit 5 run homers.

Contact play. He would have taken off no matter what.

Escobar was safe

Ben was a little shallow on that one... That's a bad place to be with nobody on and one out.
If I was Sandberg... I'd let him know about that.

We better not trade Correia... We need a cap on Martyrs!!!

Herrmann should have handled that ball in the dirt. That could cost us a run.
Colabello picked him up with a nice play.
And now Gibson has to finish up and we have team baseball covering for...

Revere will do that to ya.

We've been thru this... Before in time.
When you talk about Underdog... Your words must rhyme.

A no-no should always matter in my opinion. I remember throwing a no-no against my friend in a whiffle ball game and it mattered to me.
As for Parm... He needs to make this team.
It had to be...

Oh... Now I see what they mean.

Ok... I've been defending Parmelee's OF D and doing so with passion. I honestly claim.. I have never been disappointed with his D and then he pulls up on that flyball and it drops in for the 1st...
