I don't have him really high on the list, but I don't think he will fall of the planet either. Probably will end up going too early in the draft. ;-) Should post decent numbers, and does have a good upside, but I'm not betting the farm on him.

starting catchers usually sit 1 out of every 5 games but he will probably able to play 1B/DH to get his ABs when he is catching which is the upside of him going to Baltimore

Can anyone else confirm?) for keeping his weight within a three pound range. So it would seem the Orioles have the same concerns and are putting him to the test by offering him a nice treat.

I heard this too....I don't remember what the money was...but he has to keep his weight between 210-213 pounds to get it.....I'll see if I can find it.... :-)

well we all know hell probably go higher in any draft than he intially should, but well leave that problem to the guys who draft him high. also, even if he doesnt repeat last year, how many catcher hit on that level? maybe 4 or 5. most of the catchers hit in the mid .200 range with 10-20 homers and around 50-60 rbis. so if he doesnt hit like his last season, hell fall back around the pack but more likely a bit above. so no matter what, hell be a good catcher for a fantasy team.
theyre coming.....
