2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)If Mauer never hits another homerun, but continues to hit 346 with OB & defense, where does he rank amoung the catchers?
(Allison from Frank Black's basement)
Well above the Ausmuses, and a few ticks above the Bards. Except that he won't be able to catch for as long as either, at which point we have to start talking about Mauer and Mike Ivie in a conversation about all-time backstop disappointments. (Christina Kahrl)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In GameMike Ivie... now that's a blast from the past.

Er, considering his bat, maybe that should be a bloop from the past.

To bring a more recent Padres player (and former Tiger) into the discussion, his ability to play catcher could make Brandon Inge a nifty Robert Fick type... a game a week behind the dish, and then fill in at third and a corner as needed. (Dave Pease)
2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In GameWendy (Madrid) notes, "Christina... You know that alot of people don't know what you're talking about when you mention obscure references, right? Please, let's pretend that we're talking to a bunch of sports fans and not some Harvard literary club."

Maybe something more like a movie club; Idiocracy was an almost straight-to-video Mike Judge movie/Luke Wilson vehicle. I wouldn't recommend it, and I can't say what that might mean for whether or not Harvard types liked it.

As far as Inge, I think it's something like the Mike Ivie situation a couple of decades ago: Inge doesn't want to catch, and while every person who values his knees might sympathize, Inge is a pretty marginal regular anywhere else. Hit like he did this year, and he's even below-average for a catcher. Add in that Guillen moving to left blocks Joyce, and it's a lose-lose proposition on offense. (Christina Kahrl)
