Miguel Olivo is quietly having a wonderul season at Arizona.

Though he has to share catching duties with Mets C Mike Jacobs and Cubs C Ryan Jorgensen, he doesn't seem to be affected with the platoon.

Thru 12 games, Miggy's batting .321/.571 SLG%/.406 OBP
9 hits in 28 AB's, 4 for extra-bases, and a 4/3 BB:K ratio.

Looking at his numbers at double A Birmingham, Miguel has more than adequate power, and has fairly good plate discipline, while being a staunch defensive catcher.

Though he did only bat .259, his OPS was well over .800 in a notorious pitchers league.

A very solid rule V draft pick, and if he continues to progress at Charlotte, the Chad Bradford deal will come out in the Sox favor.

no really, his teammates call him Miggy.

And Guerrier is "Mattie"

Borchard is Borch

Kelton is Kel

Rolison is Rolo.

I can and I will, all they did was take the first few letters of the players name. That's not creative like "The Choice" or "The Pope" or "Slappy". What they did would be like me calling "Far West Chicago", West or FWC.

....or like calling me "00" which I sometimes use as a bowling name.

000 is my bowling name, I'm called that because I suck at bowling. That's clever in my book.

I'll bet it was you Mr. Positive, otherwise you wouldn't have said anything.
