    I mean, if you read the quote I posted, no.... not really.

    You can literally put the posts back to back and read them. "And maybe even get more abs than the real back up catcher. Or the real starter."

    Pretty simple. I think my 7 year old would grasp that on the first read, but she's a pretty big baseball fan so there's that.

    And then I explained it and you told me I was wrong about what I meant. LOL.

    I didn't ever claim he was an above average fielder, simply that he was capable, which gives him ABs. You are only arguing with yourself about his skills, all I'm interested in is getting the ABs. I'm a fantasy fan, not a Twins fan.

    Correct, Baldelli loves him and specifically said he wants him to play all over the diamond.

    It's strange how this argument has flipped. It started out as a statement that he wasn't worth a buck because he was only a 3rd string catcher who couldn't play any other positions, but now the goalposts have moved to "if he doesn't hit he won't play". I mean, if you want to beat down that straw man, go for it! I can't disagree. These days almost any player who doesn't hit has trouble seeing the field. I'll definitely agree with that one.

    Later!

    BTW if you ever want to correct me on what I meant when I posted something, feel free to PM me instead of posting.

    Thanks for the kind offer, but I feel things on a public board, are better played out in public. As long as there are no personal insults, let the discussion roll until it's played out. And this one is played out my friend...

    I think you whiffed on the point. Arguing with me about what I meant in a post is not something that is interesting for this board.

    If you want to give some insightful information about why you don't like Astudillo's glove, I'm interested (honestly, I'd like to hear if you have some stats to back it up). Let's hear it!

    But if you want to tell me all about what I meant in post #42 and how you know more about what I meant than I know, blah blah blah, drivel drivel drivel, I can't tell you how ridiculously boring that is.

    Lets keep the baseball board focused interesting baseball discussions (there's lots of them in this thread before it went South), and leave the personal "but no you meant something you aren't saying you meant" garbage out.

    Thanks in advance my friend.

    I am just glad an idiot dropped in my two catcher league. Willians 'dillo and Wellington 'tillo is a nice pair in an AL only league. If Altuve starts to hit, I might have something.
