I think that is very interesting and I read the thread you posted about this earlier. However, two guys that will probably be available when the Reds draft in the supplemental 1st round are Mitch Canham and Josh Donaldson are converted 3Bs who have been catching for the last year. They're putting up good numbers, and one would think that they have the physical tools to become good defenders, on the basis of their move?
What about guys like that?
