      People gotta eat, you know. Baseball is better than parking cars and that long may qualify you as a coach some day.

      Why would he “give up”? They guy makes around 80k a month in the minors because of his service time (not including his minimum wage 450k a year ML contract). How much do you make a year? right

  2. how did he last this long in the minors?

      Good defensive catchers are valuable in the minors. It doesn’t matter if they cannot hit, they are seen sometimes as roving instructors
