    Yup, for a recreational drug. Smart! There was another thread on that topic started this morning.

    Agreed! He's pitched well enough to get in against big league hitters and see what you've got.

And, the hope for 2012 would be the Butera, Towles, Rivera, whoever the THIRD catcher is would also get less than 100 plate appearances in the season... which is why of course I agree (and have written, mind you) that I think the idea of the third catcher is ridiculous. My point on Parmelee is that I'm fine with him being up as long as he's playing pretty much every day.
    You do realize both your approximations are off. Butera had 142 terrible AB's in 2010 and significantly less than 234 even worse ones last year(though, it did indeed feel more like 400). He just flat out hasn't hit at any level. Give me Towles and the outside possibility of competency with the bat.
