Not sure why racism is the default since the Latino player explosion is fueled by black players of African descent. The only color that matters to owners is "green". If you are a player who may earn the owners 10- 50 million in surplus revenue down the road you will be drafted regardless of color.
Is catcher really one of the "tallest" positions?
If catchers really are taller than other positions, what's the reason behind this? Height has value at 1B (stretch) and P (leverage) but I don't see what obvious advantage a tall catcher would have. Wouldn't you rather be closer to the ground and have a low center of gravity?
How many "very tall" (let's say 6'4" or taller) catchers have there been besides 6'5" Mauer? I see that Matt Wieters and Sandy Alomar Jr. are also 6'5". Saltalamacchia's 6'4".
Willie Wilson's hit on Ken Schrom (an apparent Easter egg in the first minute of the video link in #41) is the platonic ideal of batter retaliation.
I mean, the last one I can remember is Lenny Webster, but surely he wasn't the last one to be active in the bigs, right?
My bad on Skelton. For some reason I thought he played briefly during his Rule 5 year. Guess spring training doesn't count. :)
interesting that i don't hear ANYONE screaming that all of ficks stats should be erased from the record book and any postseason games he played in erased seeing as how they were tainted by EVULLLL
