Yahoo! is reporting that Kelly Shoppach and his 21 Hr's is likely to be dealt in the off-season. Who do you think are potential landing spots for him?

The Red Sox? :-D

Up til now I'd mostly heard that the Indians were looking at making him their primary catcher with Martinez playing first.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

Yeah, I would have thought they would hang onto him - he's young and cost-controlled. But, with Garko and VMart, they need to make a decision. I guess it comes down to who can bring the most back for the team at this point.

I know Martinez doesn't like the idea of somebody else being the primary catcher.

Well, he's doing so well behind the plate himself. :-P

I don't know that Hafner has any value at this point.

Interesting article on Shoppach and whether or not he will challenge Cust and Reynolds for the MLB lead in K's:

He might strike out at their rate, but hard to see him ever having Cust's and Reynolds' overall K numbers since he'll probably require much more games off as a catcher.

Yeah, I think its valuable information to have though for those of us who were going into 2009 targeting him as their starting catcher...I'm more apt to let him go at this point.
