I don't remember ever owning him before this year, but I love faux catchers (eligible at the position but not burdened by the actual gig) and I'm taking batting average more seriously this season. - Scott Pianowski, Yahoo

He doesn't hit for power, he doesn't steal bases and I just don't see the runs scored being what they used to be. The RBI? Maybe. But it's a much different lineup now than it was when he actually was an elite catcher. The increase in at-bats playing first will help his average have a greater impact, but with the question marks surrouning the runs and RBI, I have to drop him down a tier. - Howard Bender, Fangraphs
