(Josh from MA)
That's um...ugly. And depressing, if you're a Sox fan, or a fan of anyone else without a quality catcher. (Marc Normandin)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would Bonds be a good fit for the Stros the rest of this season?
(Alex from Houston)
They're playing Ty Wigginton in left field, and Geoff Blum is getting the extra ABs. Forget any kind of warmup, sign Bonds, start him tonight, and he'd be better than those choices.

But winning doesn't matter as much as perpetuating the myth. Say, did anyone see that Paul Lo Duca is back in the majors? (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)I thought you were pretty hard on the Yanks in the last TA. With that said, they do have to find a catcher, and it won't be easy. Any theories or recommendations?
(G-MOTA from Bumpus, MA)
I was indeed, basically for dramatic effect, but let's face it, Jose Molina's the current incarnation of bad Bomber backup backstops. What makes it worse is that there are so few options to go out and get to repair the problem, and there are rivals for any catcher available by trade (notably the Marlins). When the prize is someone like Bengie Molina, and the more likely alternatives are guys like Paul Lo Duca or Ramon Hernandez, the magnitude of the problem becomes apparent. The danger is overpaying for a guy like Gerald Laird, but at least he'd be under team control for the next two years. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is Jesus Flores for real? Should the Nats trade Paul Lo Duca to a contender?
(nats fan from MD)
Yes, and my god, yes. Or to a noncontender. Or the UFC. Or the CW. (Joe Sheehan)
