One down, one to go. What does “some receptive swings early,” mean? Now THAT one is truly puzzling. 50 years of following baseball (having played two yrs overall), and I have NEVER heard THAT one. Even Harry “the Hat” Walker never brought that phrase up. lol

We were thinking Correia was following his OWN glove….which of course made NO sense and why we were puzzled. We never thought of the catcher.

I HATE when that happens. I think I’ll go follow some beer. :)

Wherever Barajas set it up, he was hitting it, not missing.

None of us have the Hurdle decoder ring.

“Working with Rod for the first time, he was really encouraging,”
Karstens said. “You hear a lot about him as a catcher, and as a person
from A.J. [Burnett] and other guys who have thrown to him. To throw to
him for the first time today was a tremendous help for me. Just that
alone right there gave me the confidence that during the year I can
trust whatever he puts down.”

Are there Hurdle decoder rings out there? :)
