Always under the radar, easy to pick up because he’s not known by many, but always hits as many or more home runs than most other catchers. Mid-year he is usually hitting around .300, but for some weird reason his average suddenly drops to around .240 when the season ends. Yet, he produces with extra base power all year round.

I’ve read more than a few times over the years of pitchers saying they are very comfortable with Rod catching them. Like I said, always under the radar, but he quietly does an excellent job.

Free Barabbas. :)
