DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Sandoval comp has to be Hector Villanueva...
(DrDave from DC burbs)
C'mon guys and gals, this is the only vote we have besides the initial ones. (Marc Normandin)
2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)How about that Geovany Soto? That k/bb is strikingly good for someone hitting over .330. While I doubt he'll keep that up, given he's had two four hit games already, is he already the best offensive catcher in the league?
(Scott from Chicago)
One of the reasons it's fun to be back in Chicago is that it's just fun to see Soto play regularly. Between the sock and the paunch, he's got the sort of Hector Villanueva vibe beyond the pure production that might make him the all-time catcher in Cubs history. (Christina Kahrl)
