LaRue would definately fall into the underappreciated category. He is tough and give everything he has. His numbers speak for themselves. I don't think you can put a price on his worth. You have to love the way everybody on the team talks about him. It would be useless to try and trade him. If you do, you are probably taking a lesser talent, and eventhough it may save you money, you have to remember that a catcher affects more players on the team than any other player. They call the pitches, act as a coach to the pitcher, have to remember the scouting reports, and have to play excellent Defense. They touch the ball more than anybody except for maybe the starting pitcher. They are like quarterbacks. Getting a lesser catcher may also decrease the worth of your pitchers, and other teammates.
