Personal Catchers???

Postby Havok1517 » Sat Apr 01, 2006 7:31 pm

I know some pitchers only pitch to certain catchers on their teams. For example, Josh Bard will catch Wakefield, Henry Blanco will catch Prior and maybe Maddux, and Ramon Castro will be Pedro's personal catcher. So on those days you shouldn't expect Barrett, Lo Duca, and Varitek to catch. Anybody have a list of personal catchers/pitcher combos or know any? thanks guys

Found that Sheets throws to Moeller not Miller. There is another.

Manager Bobby Cox said today that he plans to use Todd Pratt as a personal catcher for one his five starters this season.

Since it will be easy to tell when to sit him, those in daily change leagues might be a little more eager to draft Brian McCann this year. Cox didn't know which pitcher he would choose to pair Pratt with, though he said it wouldn't be either Tim Hudson or John Smoltz.

Sandy Alomar Jr. will be catching two pitchers (Perez and Lowe IIRC), and Dioner Navarro will be catcher the other 3 (Seo, Tomko, and Penny).

Posada will attempt to catch this year but I think Kelly will get the call soon. So eventually don't start Posada when The Unit pitches.

Fasano will catch Lieber, so don't start Lieberthal that day. Scary if all you have is him anyways. :-B

betting that Olivio catches Dontrelle and Mirabelli catches Peavy exclusively. Also, J. Molina has caught Colon much of the time.

Marabelli wil;l catch more than Peavy, I have read speculation that Piazza will only catch arounf 100 games this year.

Oh, I agree but I'm just saying that I doubt Piazza catches Peavy at all this year. Also, I think Cota catches Oliver Perez exclusively.
