I sure wouldn't mind bringing him back to catch.

I thought the Sox didn't like how he called pitches and handled the pitchers?

That's correct from what I recall.

I doubt Don Cooper would welcome his return, teams don't trade a starting catcher during the season unless the coaching staff wants him gone.

The fact that Miguel can't find a team that wants to keep him speaks volumes.

A Sox starter, I believe it was Buehrle, refused to pitch when he was in the lineup. There might have been others on the staff who told Ozzie the same thing causing Ozzie to play Alomar more than he wanted to play him at his age.

The question for me is, is that still true of Olivo? He was new to baseball then. People do learn things over time.

His frequent movement among teams tells me the answer might be "it is still true."

Olivo traded to Toronto for cash and a PTBNL.

The Jays will be his seventh major league team, and eighth organization. (He was one of the players to be named later that came to the White Sox from Oakland for Chad Bradford, but Olivo never played for the A's.) That's assuming the Jays don't trade him or let him go before they break camp.

I wonder whose cap he will be wearing on his Hall of Fame plaque.

The Jays already declined his option. Alex just wanted the draft pick compensation. It will be offered and Olivo isn't going to accept with the glut of catchers in Toronto. A good move.

Did I read right that Toronto traded for him for a PTBNL and then declined his option with a $500K buyout?

A half-million dollars plus a player or cash for a sandwich pick? :scratch:

Pretty sure it's either a PTBNL or cash.

So this means Olivo was rated a type B free agent? Seriously?

That would be an upgrade over AJ in my book.

I'll take him.
