I don't think it's that big of a deal either, but I'm kind of annoyed about this stubbornness about keeping him at catcher.
His skill set is what it is. Either you live with the fact that he's not good at blocking pitches or you make him a first baseman. There's no need for them to bang their heads against the wall trying to get a player to learn certain skills when he just doesn't have the proper disposition for them.
He's too small for a 1B. Think Biggio.
Except he has 30 lbs on Biggio. The Kid has bulked up since I saw him play.
