    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.

    Shoppach was a dbag, I guess they want to get rid of all the dbags, much more to come.

    Maybe he was a dbag because he had to play behind a dog ... ???

    Both are no good. Both should have been traded. Meh and meh.

    Not a big fan, but doesn't Salty lead this team in HR's??... aside from that he is woefully inadequate in all phases of the game.

    Good catchers are a rare commodity in MLB.
