MR. MADDUX will not allow him behind the plate...it's been that way for the last couple of years.

Maddux is the only one I'm aware of.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I read an article and it said Maddux doesn't think that Lopez frames his pitches good enough on the outside and inside corners. You know Maddux loves to hit the corners and had made a career doing it, so he doesn't think Lopez frames his pitches good enough to make them look more like strikes than balls.

Maddux and Javy never got along too well and as a sign of apreciation, the Braves gave Maddux his personal catcher. First it was Eddie Perez then Paul Bako and now it's Henry Blanco. Btw, Javy just blasted a HR!

How does that sort of relationship affect the clubhouse?

Not at all I don't think. It's not that they don't get along at all. They just can't play together. Maybe Lopez questions Doggies pitches and Blanco just shuts up. Who knows...
