The Next John Buck.
Like him better than Skipworth?
This post was brought to you by: Dat SEC Speed
He's the next Marlins starting C.
Is Mark Kotsay being serious?
That doesn't really answer it.
What do you like about him?
What do you like about his defense?
(not doing a thing)
By all indications he has a very strong arm which is something I think we've been lacking behind the plate for a while. And from what I've read, his footwork etc. needs a little bit of work but he is expected to be an above average defensive catcher and that makes me happy.
Also, he's a lefty hitter and I am naturally biased toward lefties.
Kyle Skipworth hits left handed
I know that. But I don't like him because his name is Kyle Skipworth and that isn't a baseball name.
see, the main reason for my dislike of Skipworth has been lost since T+B's demise and it's a damn shame
This kid here spells his last name wrong.
He wanted to distance himself from that shitty QB who accomplished nothing in Gainesville.
So you like John Buck?
Well, Skipworth wasn't thought of as a good defensive catcher. Although that's the one area he's actually improved a good deal.
like, I get it, MK7 hates Skipworth was a fun meme for a long time, but I nothing him. I don't like him, I don't hate him. I don't think he was the right pick at the time for a number of reasons but I don't wish for his untimely death or anything.
I just don't get why you like this guy. It has less to do with Skip than that.
because he's a plus defender and he'll be able to step in when Buck is gone and hopefully bridge the gap to Realmuto/something more stable so we don't have to spend another $15-20 million in free agency on a below average catcher just because we need one
didn't I already pretty much say that? or were you too busy doing a thing to read that post?
I said I wasn't doing a thing. I'm trying to understand your reasoning, and it doesn't really make sense. Sorry.
Yeah, my bad.
