    I think Bagwell could have played another 3 years and solidified his HOF induction had he gone back to 3rd base after learning to throw left handed.

    What baseball movie did this happen in? Some guy could throw a bullet to catch a guy stealing at 2nd base but would totally Chuck Knoblach it throwing back to the pitcher...my memory is blanking.

    That's IT. Eric Bruskotter played the kinda slow catcher I was thinking of.

    Would jump on signing this guy if this were 2015, but we may even be too loaded to carry Swisher. Good OBP guy IIRC.

    If it was 2012 is more like it. He used to be a good OBP guy and fine player

    He's 35 and coming off 2 awful years. Sadly, he's just done

    Its risky as well considering Stantons health. I'd spend the money on a bid at Trout
