No takers? Okay, a hint. One of these fellas knocked 3 out of the park last night.

All formers Royals then I'm assuming. I know the last one is Olivo...

EDIT: All Royals catchers. The other one is Jason Kendall.

My roommate and me were discussing that during Spring Training. The guy is absolute murder on lefty pitching and can hold his own against right handers as well. Not to mention he is one of the best defensive catchers in the league and his pitches love him (Greinke would always refer to how Olivo called a great game in his pressers).

Are you saying you wish John Buck was still chasing passed balls to the back stop for the Royals?

Olivo may have been a favorite of Greinke's, and did play with a lot of grit, but he was by no means one of the best defensive catchers in the game.

It's really, really hard to find a catcher who slugs .427 and is still a bad hitter, even for his position.
