So basically if this kid can't cut it at catcher he's another base clogging, station to station type....supposedly the type of player the Sox are trying to get away from.
I hope he can learn to catch otherwise this doesn't make a lot of sense does it?
Good hitters are valuable, and, just so you know, not many catchers are fleet of foot. I'm not sure what your point is, considering it should be our priority to acquire good hitters first and foremost.
