    Proof positive that even "beloved" Bullpen-level Catchers have tangibly intangible value (to somebody).

    Thanks for the memories, Drewby, and thanks for your part in bolstering our minor league pitching depth......I have a sneaking suspicion you'll be back again someday.

    Ugh, will this day never end?
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    This thread is painful, right?
    I will one day successfully sneak onto the Sportive Podcast, and have nothing intelligent to say or add to the conversation.

    Factoid: Juan effectively had no platoon split, holding righties to a .692 OPS and lefties to .690.

    If I recall correctly, though, he struggled against older switch hitters late in playoff games.

    So much for my near total suppression of that memory. Thanks, Chief.



    Here's how that inning went for Juan, for those looking for a punch in the gut to start the day...

    Single
    Wild pitch
    Walk
    Single (run scored)
    Strikeout
    Home run (3 runs scored)
    Double
    Shower
