The Most Entertaining Post Ever

Chad Moeller has been a backup catcher for ten years. He's one of those guys that make you scratch your head and wonder how he has had a job for so long. The guy has never hit. He was a starting catcher only once in his career. Refreshingly, he knows he is lucky and wonders himself how he has stayed around for so long.

The feature baseball writer for the New York Times simply lets Moeller talk about pitchers he has caught and stays out of the way. It's a brilliant post and easily one of the most entertaining this Fan has read in a long, long time. Check it out yourself here.

The Fan doesn't know about you, but if Moeller and other catchers would put out a book with honest remembrances about pitchers they've caught it would be on the Fan's must have list in a heart beat.

I enjoyed his insight. It's neat to see how a catcher looks at the pitchers he's caught.
