Then I looked at his homers from last year. 10/13 homers at Yankee Stadium were opposite field and all were over the fence at PNC. I’ll have more in an article tonight.

Especially with PED testing. Barajas was an extreme example of gamblingon a players age. He is ancient for a starting catcher.

Not surprising though with Doumit. I’d like to see stats on how many balls fouled off his mask he went down and acted hurt on compared to other C’s. I know it is more. Way more than Barajas. I didn’t call him “Glass Dough” for nothing.

I feel like he is a 1.5-2.0 WAR player in Pittsburgh and as the rigors of catching take its toll after 30.
