Some of the coolest things I own were things purchased with the house.
Owners were Vaudeville Performers. Tons of late Vaudeville and early silent movie ephemera

The O’s led the league in wild pitches but walked fewer batters than the average team. Strike percentage just a small fraction below average. Hard to say if the wild pitches are the result of wild pitchers or poor catchers. I should point out that Severino allowed fewer wild pitches than Sisco despite having more playing time.
Oh, I don’t think we have any catcher in the system who is a front line starter, or even a second line starter, but I think what we need most right now is an expert framer and blocker. Severino Gave up a lot of passed balls, and probably could be blamed for some wild pitches that should’ve gone against him instead.
I was quite surprised to find that overall, Sisco’s defense was better, And God knows I’m not in love with Sisco. I think we could get an acceptable defender behind the plate for pretty close to league minimum. He wouldn’t hit much, but I wouldn’t care about that much.
gotta go back to work but I’ll BBl with some stats from baseball Savant
Probably good advice.
I have a personality quirk that sometimes compels me to waste hours of time on esoterica... just because I want to know... particularly in support of an assertion. (even when the assertion is trivial)
I also have the peculiar habit of trying to (devil's) advocate both sides of a point... to the great confusion of those I'm conversing with.
