BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 When the Cubs decided that they had a catching problem they needed to fix, they fixed it with a vengeance. Not only have they dumped both Hundley and Girardi, they’ve brought in Damian Miller, Paul Bako, and Keith McDonald. All three of them are better than Girardi and Hundley, to be sure, but they can’t keep all of them, let alone keep all three and go a-hunting for wild I-Rod in the bargain bin.
2002 Should 27-man rosters come about, Tony LaRussa is the one manager who will find a way to carry four catchers. Barring that, McDonald is probably screwed by the acquisition of DiFelice. Considering the Cardinals are already burning a roster spot on a defensive replacement such as Matheny, they’d be better off carrying McDonald for his slightly better bat. DiFelice has more big-league experience, and he’s over 30, and those things matter to the Cardinals.
