I haven't noticed-- has Hatteberg caught at all this year?
he had a good defensive rep when he came up, but I saw him catch about 5 or 6 years ago, and it was surprising to watch him make no effort on basestealers. My understanding was that the arm was still there but that there was a mental thing about making the throw to second.
