  • The legend Henry Blanco returns!

    He's healthy again, and played 47 games of winterball. Runners beware!
    To offset some of the pain of being a diehard Cubs fan, I've learned to also be a moderate Yankees fan.

    Fear the UNIBROW! But, I was a big fan of Blanco when he was a Brave. He's always been a good defensive catcher.

      He hit for .243/.339/.388 in those 47 games.

        He'll be a good influence on the young Soto.

          As Cubs fans, it is our responsibility to take the lexicon of Chuck Norris jokes and rework them as Hank White jokes instead.

            I hope he's healthy this year, because the cupboard is pretty bare behind him. If Hank can't play, then our backup is Koyie Hill or JD Closser.

              Hill called games decently enough last year. I don't mind having him on board.

                If memory serves correct, Blanco had a herniated disc between C2-3. With his constant crouch and head tilt as a catcher, it's going to be repeatedly tested each time he dons a mask. With Henry backing up Soto, Geo will get a world of insight after each inning he catches.
                What a Batted Ball is Worth (in terms of a run):
                Line Drive: .356
                HBP: .342
                Non-Intentional Walk: .315
                Intentional Walk: .176
                Outfield Fly: .035
                Groundball: -.101
                Bunts: -.103
                Infield Fly: -.243
                Strikeout: -.287

                  Hill is a good defensive catcher, but offensively helpless. That was a huge drain on our offense last year I care not to repeat. Hank isn't Pudge Rodriguez either, but he does give you the occasional jack.

                    All the stats you have on Koyie are meaningless to me. Show me his HWEqBA and then we'll talk.
