Every time I see him I think of his stint with the Reds, seeing him as basically a bullpen catcher for most of that. Anyway, sucks for him but I’m sure he’ll get somewhere, guys like him never see to go away, just move around.

I think the real question here is, how in the heck can a dude bat .216 over 11 years, and STILL BE PAID TO PLAY BALL?  Promise I could hit at least .250. Sign me up.

Checked his minor league stats thinking he would have HAD to have had a good year somewhere, sometime.  Anyway, I’m sure he’s a nice guy…

 He was a decent 3rd fill-in catcher for the Phillies.
