pretty impressive if you ask me


The 30-year-old Johjima, who was an all-star in Japan the previous six seasons, has done well enough that after yesterday’s game, he has caught more innings, 720, than any other catcher in the major leagues.
He is hitting .286 with 10 homers and 43 runs batted in, and he is ninth among major league catchers with 28 extra-base hits.

There aren't many more AL catchers that are fun to watch.

I'm just glad I get to watch him play in person a majority of the time. He was quite a find for the M's considering the revolving door at catcher the M's had last year. I think he has exceeded many people's expectations considering all he had to learn.
