Re: Neftali Soto, Catcher?

Unfortunately, many good hitters play COF and CIF. That's just how it goes, they are gifted offensively but perhaps not defensively. So you sift through, pick the best ones, trade the others.
If the options are having Soto as a bad CIF/OF or a bad catcher, I'd rather have him as a catcher (assuming he had enough
defense to get by at the position.) We don't really have a spot for any more corner players. And catchers have better trade value.
I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
