He needs a lot of work as a catcher.  This is for the best.  I don't think he's ever going to be any more than a passable defensive catcher in the majors, but he's got a way to go to even get there.  If he can, he becomes quite a weapon - a guy who can catch 4 days a week and play 2 or 3 other positions as well, allowing you to keep two catchers fresh over a long season and rest other guys too without losing too much bat.
Agree with most of what you are saying. 

I'm guessing with Norris gone, it's almost time to take the Norris talk to the Former Nat thread or the out of town scoreboard.
