A tale of woe: Seattle Mariners catchers

Dan Wilson & not much since The toughest guy physically on the field has got to be the catcher. Without question it’s the most taxing, mentally challenging, physically challenging and grueling position to play in Major League Baseball. Don’t believe me? The easiest game to catch has to be when your pitcher throws a perfect game.  So say he only throws 90 pitches in that...

So in true professional style, Olivo watched the first inning from the clubhouse, then showered, then got dressed...

Wednesday news and notes

The Reds offered Miguel Olivo $100,000 to report to Louisville as part of the new CBA for players with his experience level coming off of a MLB deal the year before. He has not yet decided whether he will accept it, but given that he is hitting .167 this spring, I doubt there is an offer out there for a big league deal. With that said, he may see that the Reds have two pretty good...

Last Game It was yet another loss for the Reds yesterday. They lost 2-4 while visiting the Rangers in Surprise, AZ. The game was televised on the MLB Network, so I got to watch a Reds lineup minus Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips while I put in my time on the treadmill. It was so meta. Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-3 with an RBI and Miguel Olivo went 1-for-1 with an RBI and a run scored...
