I played catcher through high school in Garland at Lakeview Centennial, but I was most productive on the bench where I dreamed of playing catcher at UT. The one claim I can make to an interesting baseball event is that our Pony League team was one win from the Pony League World Series.

But, isn't putting Mendoza into the game at that point also a development/learning experience?

It would need to be a very imaginative organization that would claim him, since he would need to stay on the 25.

I will be so sad if the WS is Dodgers-Angels. I don't want either in the WS, even though it would mean Kershaw.

Still, Willingham brought Jason Adams back from KC. I think that would've been a fair return for Rios.

It appears Preller isn't as smooth as we all think, since he's the only one who got caught.

Well, at this point, they only have 5 fielders who have played >100 games (86% of games). That's pretty much historically bad.
