right, I think that's the key point. often guys are put at catcher because of their tools plus their weak offense, and on rare occasions those guys hit a lot more than expected and teams feel inclined to re-move them
aren't a lot of Craig Biggios out there, but Frazier could be one. Adam Rosales, OTOH...
I suspect the Cubs got into this business because the catcher market's terrible and because it's not a baserunning era. Those things could change, but Reds ought to try it out as well.
