Jake Fox, Ramon Vazquez… hmm, who else is still kicking around for the first season of Hey, Remember When You Were A Thing? Matt LaPorta when he gets designated for assignment?

It’s a shame that Fox’s .910 OPS at AAA has never translated; he’d be a heck of an offensive catcher if it did.

The problem isn’t his offense. He’s got a .714 OPS with 20 HR in 534 major league PA. That isn’t awesome, but if he could really catch, he’d have a steady major league job. And if he could catch and hit just a tick better than that, he’d have a John Buck like career.

The problem as I understand it is, he doesn’t catch so well.

Except Buck cant catch either.
