    I am sorry, but the Oakland Athletics telling Kurt Suzuki that he should never block home plate in any circumstance is terrible. One run is a huge deal, a huge deal in any game, no matter the score. Now, it is not fair to assume that by not blocking the plate the catcher has no chance of getting the out, but obviously those odds drop significantly.

    They were also wrong (are you seeing a pattern here?) about Buster Posey and Joe Mauer being the best catchers in the Major Leagues. What about Brian McCann? He is an elite catcher and you can definitely argue is better than the two of them.

    Oh, PTI I have to wonder why I even watch you sometimes when you just insult my intelligence.moreless
