LA Dodgers Catcher
Painting of LA Dodgers catcher. The LA Dodgers have two good catchers with each doing a yeoman job with the pitching teammates. This painting could be of either Yasmani Grandal or Austin Barnes as I used a generic catcher for reference to the painting. As a Los Angeles Dodgers both are having a good season. Yasmani Grandal: led all every-day catchers in the majors with 27 homers last season and at the time of this posting his batting average is batting 316. Austin Barnes: batting 265 right now is a player the Dodgers were willing to part with veteran Carlos Ruiz, in part, because of their confidence in Barnes.
These two catchers have had some good highlights and being on a winning team that have a good shot at the World Series this year.. I am not sure if these catchers do what so many others do, learning in the minor leagues to watch every game on replay. A catcher wants to do is look at the sequences, go through the at-bats, and consider what other things they could have done - maybe differently. It was a way of re-thinking the games and that may give them insights for future games. And this makes any pitcher respect his catcher, knowing that his catcher has done all the homework possible to make the right pitching calls.
