    LOL!

    Creative solution but he's an outfielder for a reason, folks. If he could succeed at catcher do you honestly think he wouldn't be a catcher right now? It's not like catchers who can hit like Murton can hit wouldn't get some slack on their defense anyway.

As someone said in another thread, BLanco is gonna be asked after every inning due to his injury from last year, well it'd be nice to have some depth behind Blanco on the team, and it doesnt even cost us a roster spot as Murton was already planned to be on the roster.
    Murton said he'd really rather not do it, and that he wasn't comfortable with the position at all. If they want to re-assign him to learn a different position, it should be SS. I don't know if he has the glove or the reaction time for it though.
