    Didn't think so. I'll see you again tomorrow night around the top of the ninth."

        He was a decent catcher. I think he retired at the right time though. Very funny about the ladies too Spark240

          He most certainly had a fine career, PED accusations or no. The question now is: is he the greatest catcher the Braves have ever had?

            Possibly. He wasn't the best defensive catcher, but his offense was always timely. I've gotta do some research.

              I am glad that I was able to see him play in 2005.

                I think Torre was a little better than Javy, but it's close (and I like Javy more anyhow ).

                  I was glad the Braves decided to give him a tryout and it seemed that some people had already started to pencil him in as the backup. He was a big piece of the team during the divisional run of the 90s/00s. I remember the '96 NLCS when he turned on the boomstick against the Cards. He hit .542 during that series.

                    He was just too old.

                    I really wanted him here, but he didn't do too well, and he sure didn't impress. It was time for him to move on.

                      It's too bad - Erik Bedard and Ichiro have really bad STs, but nobody even really cares. But when you're in Javy's position, you have to have a good spring.

                            Yeah, my favorite Braves catcher (by film and anecdote). Not the hitter some other guys have been, but a great defender.

                              That's true, but I don't think he was that great a defender to overcome that hitting deficiency to be the best Braves catcher of all.
