    Well, they went on and on about how having Doumit would allow them to occasionally pinch hit Gattis. Doumit is more than capable to hold his own back there with a 3 run lead.

    I've always been a proponent of pinch hitting for your catcher late in games that are close, even with only 2 catchers. Worst case scenario you've got to throw a position player back there for a couple innings. Managers act like it's the worst thing in the world to have to use an emergency catcher, but it's really not.
    thank you weso1!

    Yeah, I mean I don't think I've ever seen that. Not to say I'm against it, but it doesn't seem to be something managers do often, if at all. I do think defense is important and a miscue or two can lead to momentum and a big inning. I think Bethancourt may legitimately be a more valuable player to us playing that role, filling in for Gattis 1-2 times a week or against AL teams. I don't see him ever hitting enough to be a regular.

    Even in a year where he's shown no power, and this netting him a very average offensive year, he's still our best player.

    I really don't see the problem using Doumit. Use him.

    Yeah, what the hell was that? Did he slip him a Benjamin or something? Old Joe had an interesting strike zone going. Shreve might stay a major leaguer as a result of Joe's efforts.

    West was returning the favor—Gerald gave him a hot tip on a recently opened all-you-can eat buffet.
