Alas, we begin with the catcher position. It's a less-than-exciting position to start with for me personally because I am rather impartial towards this group as a whole. I am unlikely to pay up for the more premier options at the position, yet most of the options after the top-12 are largely interchangeable. The landscape of the position was altered a bit last year with the arrival of super-beefcake Kyle Schwarber, which ultimately wound up amounting to very little since he played just two games and missed the rest of the season after shredding his knee like a tender pork butt. He no longer qualifies at the position since he only played the outfield in those games, but on the bright side, replacing him is Gary Sanchez, who had one of the best half seasons a rookie has ever had. There is extreme regression looming for him (as often is the case considering just a half seasons statistics), but he made tremendously hard contact and is not to be ignored.
This year I will post a "Key Stat" that stands out from each players' profile. Obviously each complete player profile is unique and often complex, so the single stat is merely an interesting aspect that can be utilized when arguing either for or against a players' future effectiveness.
