Whoever is drafting Yadier Molina in Rd 4 deserves to be donkey punched into oblivion. Photo: shgmom56 It's true what they say, "If you draft a Catcher early, it means you like to take it in the butt." There is nothing wrong if you're the guy who drafts Buster Posey, but please spare us from the Bust Her Posey jokes. You're not fooling anyone. We know. We know.
