    Wasn't he actually a D-Backs fan?

    2003 they just had one thread here at BDC where everyone could post to, the night A. F. Boone hit the game winning homerun the place went ballistic for hours.

    He said he was but only so he could give it to Yankee fans after the D-Backs beat NY in 2001.

    Actually he was a closet Red Sox fan but he wouldn't admit it. That was before 2004 he might have come out of the closet since.

    But Larry did live in Arizona and go to D-Back games.

    Montero 2 for 3 in the game he caught last night, 3 RBIs in the 4-0 win over Oakland. 

    First at bat a homerun over the CF fence later on a 2 run double. His BA up to .323.

    Appears he is warming up as I predicted he would.


    Montero, Noesi lead Seattle past Oakland 4-0

    Lavarnway batting .194 down at AAA with one extra base hit but he does have 9 walks.

    Three of those BBs have been intentional too.  I'm not sure how much of this is Lavarnway slumping, as opposed to not getting anything to hit.  If you're batting .194 with a .375 OBP, it hints toward the latter.

    No, a sub-.200 batting average indicates that you are not hitting the ball.

    Make all the excuses you want. They are just that, excuses.

    Yes, batting average is a very important stat.  Time to plug into my walkman and fire up the word processor.  Matlock's on in 10 minutes.

    I must have missed the part where I indicated it's importance.

    But, strangely enough, batting average is pretty important when evaluating whether one is hitting the ball or not.

    So in your opinion, if you replace those nine walks with a single and eight outs, Lavarnway is having a better season?

    Is Mark Teixeira the worst 1B in the AL?  He had the lowest batting average last year.

    I never stated that.

    But BA is a pretty good indicator of hitting the ball.

    Tough to drive in a run with a walk unless the bases are loaded.

    That's probably why nobody is pitching to him. 9 BBs, 3 IBBs in 9 games.  BTW, it's hard to score a run if you're never on base.

    I guess of all the 1B in the AL in 2011, Teixeira was the worst at hitting the ball.  Gonzalez was the best, by the way.

    Yes, Tex's .245 BA indicates that he was not very good at hitting the ball. When he did make contact he was productive, but that doesn't change the fact that he was poor at hitting the ball.

    You're half-way there.  Production is important.  Now what makes Teixeira with his .245 BA and his .494 SLG a significantly better hitter than Salty, with a .235 BA and .450 SLG?

    Lavarnway just hit a solo shot - there's a reason pitchers are afraid to pitch to him.

    i honestly think lavarnway needs to be called up. keep him in AAA is not going to help him much. and considering how bad salty is, i would rather see lavarnway start and shoppach back him up, trade salty for a middle reliever or back of pen guy if ben can swing it. But its pretty obvious that salty is not our catcher of the future.

    I'd love this thread to stay alive the entire season.  Anybody really think Lavarnway's going to be hitting .200 for long?  Opposing teams don't, or they would be pitching to him.

    This is an interesting development - the Sox DFAd Exposito and called up Matt Spring to AAA.  Matt Spring is nowhere in the org depth chart, and is 0 for 14 on the season at AA.  I think you're going to see Lavarnway as the starting everyday catcher at Pawtucket.

    I'd like to see them move Ybarra up to AAA. They probably move Butler though instead. Or Salty!

    Seriously though, they didn't even want to pitch to Lavarnway in mlb last year. 34 HR with a high OBP is impressive. He gets tons of respect and he has come close to 3 or 4 other HR already this year. He's giving the ball a good ride.

    I think BenC is thinking Butler and Lav are the two future catchers until Swihart is ready. It will be Lav as DH and third catcher possibly as early as next season.
