Who thought it was a good idea for 2 catcher leagues? I’m guessing it was Lou Marson, because I’m not sure why else that guy exists. A word of friendly advice, when trying to survive league formats that carry a second catchers position, the general rule of thumb is try not to stab yourself in the eye. Trust me, because for the next six weeks, I’ll have to wear this custom made...
