Lots of competition for this position in the NL — perennial cipher Brad Ausmus is right there, as are Yadier Molina, Jason Phillips and Mike Lieberthal — but top honors go to Snyder. Despite playing half his games in one of the best hitter's parks around, he's got a .309 OBP and is on pace for only 23 extra-base hits this season."
Sorry but this blurb makes the article lose any credibility. Yadier Molina is the best defensive catcher in the majors.

Offense might be 50% of the game, but defense is 80% of catching.
Well, no. The game is 50% offense and 50% defense. Defense is about 80% pitching and about 20% fielding. So, that makes it 50% hitting, 40% pitching and about 10% fielding. So, Molina stinks at half the game, and has only minor contributions to make in fielding, since catchers have so few plays. There's little evidence that catchers have a huge impact on pitching, but that may be something we learn more about in the future.
Tony womack was voted the worst player in baseball with a close victory over Cristian Guzman.

Jose Lima KCA AL -24.2
Guzman comes to Washington with a nifty $16.8 million, four-year deal. The former Twins shortstop will be 27 on opening day, making him due for a breakout season ala Carlos Guillen of 2004. Although he will be learning a new league, Guzman should now be considered a potential sleeper as a Fantasy shortstop. You have heard the story before: relatively disappointing shortstop prospect leaves, turns 27 and has a breakout year. Now, Guillen is stronger than Guzman, but the situations should be close. Age 27, the industry-accepted "prime," is a great time to be buying a player. Definitely consider Guzman as a sleeper option on Draft Day. (Updated 1/21/05)
