What is the single most important skill a catcher must own to be sucessfull? This is NOT an all inclusive list so feel free to add other skill sets to the discussion.
Is it working with the pitching staff, relating to them, being able to help them calm down and work through jams with helpfull advice?
Is it being able to frame the pitches, keep the batters guessing, and help maximize the strike zone while it appears the umps are minimizing it this year (or at least are very creative with it, but that's a different thread)?
Is it his throwing arm and ability to throw runners out? Taking away scoring oportunities from the other team.
Drability? He can be medicore but if he can stand the riggors of catching he'll contribute over time?
Maybe it's something else.
