  • Kenji locked up through 2011

    Press conference at 3 p.m. PT with contract details.

    I'm getting to the point where every day feels like a ticking time bomb with Bavasi. It's like he wants to get as many bad deals done in as short time period as possible. Kenji isn't a bad catcher, but he's not really that good. And, oh yeah, the organization's best prospect is a catcher (Jeff Clement, who is stuck in AAA). Depending on the terms of the deal, this could be good or bad. But excuse me if I'm not optimistic...

      --Johjima is a solid catcher. I wouldn't mind having him around 3 more years - if our best prospect wasn't a catcher. This either blocks Clements or moves him to DH/1B. I'm not crazy about either scenario. I guess the upside is that since he won't be our regular catcher next year there is no reason not to get his bat up helping us now.

        It wouldn't be bad

        if Kenji was not in the most awful slump of his life...he's tough and has good footwork...For a guy who's played the Catcher position for over 15 years going back to his teens, he's amazingly spry, flexible, and quick...I thought he was snapping out of his slump a couple of weeks looks as though he's trying to go up the middle and the other way...perhaps analysis paralysis has set in...
