Yeah, he sits a lot more than your average starting catcher. I think Bobby Cox does it to keep him fresh, which is really annoying for us fantasy owners. Also, he's a lefty, so he often seems to sit against lefties (like Ollie Perez tonight).

seems like he played alot more last year, but maybe i'm remembering wrong. It certainly is frustrating he sits so much...

Braves want to keep him fresh and give at-bats to Salty (one of the best Catching prospects in the game)
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

You're all overreacting. Only 8 catchers have gotten into more games than him. True, he's pinch-hit a few times, but he was also out a few days because of injury. He's on pace for 482 at bats, more than the 442 plate appearances he saw last year. Whatever value he's losing because of missed games is being made up -- and then some -- by moving up in the lineup.
