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.

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.

The prize obtained for Milton (also with throw-ins Silva and Punto). His lifetime BA of 1.000 remains unexcelled.

....days until Spring Training. I'll always miss hating you so completely while you and your .220 average haunted the lineup. #BoatAnchor

It's gotta be, that 5-o'clock shadow is a dead giveaway.

Two possible captions.

1. "Here's the awkward delivery, and whiplash..."

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
