"It really is the heartbeat of a club. It is really hard and getting harder to find catchers who can contribute with their (offensive) ability but also have that innate leadership and intellectual gifts to own a staff".
"I feel we need to look at catchers differently. We need to value not so much what we want them to look like but what they bring every day to help you win. I’m not sure that can be measured in a standard scouting evaluation. I think it goes a lot deeper than that."
