    Given that he's been dead for 18 years, that's quite an accomplishment. ;)

    I haven't said that I don't value the things you value about full ABS. But I have to be very careful about how I talk about any of that. Employees of MLB are forbidden and can be disciplined for...

    We got to tour the Oval Office, which was pretty cool. I think that was the highlight for me.

    And I'm mostly not visible in the pictures I've seen online. In the video, you can see me for a couple seconds if you know where to look, but even my wife couldn't pick me out, so....

    Calling balls and strikes on 80-100 mph pitches moving in crazy directions is a very difficult skill for a human. The MLB umpires are incredibly good at this. However, catchers receiving the ball...

    I don't know when. Some sources mention Mickey Cochrane as the first and others mention Yogi Berra, but I haven't seen anyone with a definitive answer.

    As to why, the reasons given seem to be for...

    The ABS system itself works quite well. And yes, they have tried out full ABS implementations in A ball in previous seasons. They have learned and made a number of tweaks to the system, including...

    Btw, I'm not arguing that a full ABS system is a good or a bad thing. I'm just saying that it would introduce huge changes to the catching position, and that people who are in favor of ABS need to...

    Catchers in the 1800s didn't squat. Also, a lot more players played catcher along with other positions. I think you'd go a significant way back in that direction.

    Also, not that it matters nearly as much as the changes to the catcher position, but I assume the home plate umpire would also position himself very differently if he didn't have to call balls and...

    I'm not ignoring you, I just didn't happen to see it when I glanced through the thread.

    I think most of those things you listed matter. I don't see why the current crop of catchers is necessarily...

    I think you're being FAR too conservative here compared to what actual MLB teams would do. I'm guessing only a small handful of current MLB catchers would keep jobs, based on their ability to hit. ...

    If you are running the Padres and are told that a full ABS system is being implemented in MLB next year, who do you choose to play the catcher position and what stance do you have them use?

    And...

    I think we should keep this forum focused on baseball and such players as Corey and her brother Kyle Seager.
