  • Could Huckaby be a threat to Bard for the Catcher backup spot ???

    Hey BoSox fans , do you think that spring training invitee C Ken Huckaby could be a threat to newly acquired C Josh Bard for the Catcher backup spot ???

    I think he could be, but he's not. Bard is doing all the catching now with Huckaby on the bench with knee problems. Also Bard is a better catcher then Huckaby, so i think Bard will easily win the spot as backup catcher.

        But just look at Bard's batting stats and compare them to Huckaby's . Huckaby is by far a better offensive catcher !!!

          Bard has much better offensive stats than huckaby. Bard leads Huckaby in runs, hits, doubles, both have one triple, home runs, RBI, BB, huckaby has more strikeouts, Batting Average, on base percentage, slugging, and Total bases. There is no way that huckaby has better offensive stats. Also Huckaby is injured and id rather have a healthy guy as backup.

            But defensively they are very similar :

            - Huckaby Career Fielding PCT% .988
            - Bard Career Fielding PCT% .989

            But of course Huckaby is more experienced :

            - Huckaby 6 MLB seasons
            - Bard 4 MLB seasons

              They are very close defensivley. But the 5 seasons (not 6) of huckabys compared to 4 seasons of Bards still does not show more experiance. Bard has played in 156 games with 495 AB's, While Huckaby has played in 153 games with 422 AB's. Huckabys first season he played in only 1 game. So Bard would be more experianced in the Major Leauges. Huckaby has more experiance total including the minor leaugues (Huckaby drafted 1991. Bard drafted 1999) But more time in the majors is more important. Now neither are great catchers but Huckaby isnt as good and isnt as healthy.
