That's the best I can do on the little I've read on him.
I would agree with that, more power then Hanny, not a ton more though. I think he is a good defensive catcher (I agree Han has the best arm of the 3 here), has a better arm then Ramon and calls a good game. He has had some great pitchers to work with his years here, so he has handled a lot of diferent really good pitchers, and knows how to work well with each and their strengths. I dont think he wil lbe a star, but a good, consistant catcher you can put back there and not have any worries about him. Also a great guy, very friendly and a real fav in the clubhouse.
