Can someone explain to me why we didn't trade him? Why we traded Shoppach instead of Salty? If we just needed a good catcher to finish the year Shoppach was good enough ... even good enough for next year. Salty is the Jonah on the team - he has brought us grief ... and he sucks as a hitter and catcher. I obsess over this ... I blame him more than Luchino and Valentine.
