My neighbor is a friend of Fick's and said that Fick wanted to get back to catching. Maybe that's why he went to the Braves, because he'd get a chance to catch every once and a while. Fick also wanted to stay in the AL, so his move to the Braves came as a bit of a shock to me, giving me more reason to believe the Braves offered to let him catch sometimes. Who knows though. I wouldn't put it past any baseball executive to say "Oh, sure, we'll let you catch every now and then" just to sign the player. Well, it doesn't matter to me if he catches or not because he's not eligible at C until he actually plays there this year and I need some OF help anyway (Edmonds $30, Jenkins $26, Daryl Ward $8, Lankford $9, Lofton $84 [FAAB]).
