C have a much heaver stress on their arms than ither position players. Closer to pitchers
Is this written somewhere? How many high stress throws must a catcher make per game?

The average team attempts less than one steal per game, and the Orioles' catchers had 82 assists in 2014. I don't see a reason to believe the stress on catchers' arms remotely approaches that of pitchers.

But if Matt doesn't have the pop time Buck is looking for he won't catch until he does.

C - Weiters

1B - Davis

2B - Schoop

3B - Manny

SS - Hardy

LF -

CF - Jones

RF -

DH - Pearce/

Ut - Flaherty

SP - Tillman, Gausman, Chen, Gonzo, Jiminez

Notable opinions - de Aza and Markakis won't be back unless they take a pay cut. Miller will definitely sign elsewhere. Cruz could possibly be back, but I'd put our odds at less than 33%.

Players I'd be interested in acquiring:

Cuddyer - 1B/OF/DH

Aoki - OF

Jon Jay - OF (not a FA, but is in a packed Cards OF)

Catchers use an abbreviated throwing motion often. Not sure if that has any effect on injury/recovery. They also throw to second in at the start of every defensive inning.
They could toss that ball underhanded.
I think they should.

Please to connote all posts of sarcasm with cute little emoticons so those with a less developed sense of humor may understand your meaning.

Please disregard if serious. (Insert Joker from Batman gif here, or in next post)

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
