Flores can't control how well/not well Hill is throwing the ball. His sinker has NO downward movement on it. He's leaving the balls up in the zone. He can't throw his other pitches at all.
yes, he can't control how well/not well *any* pitcher is throwing the ball.
but that never stops people from gushing about how well our catchers "call games" or "handle pitchers" when our guys aren't getting shelled.
like I said, just playing devil's advocate.
personally, I think Flores and Nieves have done outstanding jobs this year, and Flores could have been our AS rep, if he had been here the whole season.
but I find it funny how so much credit is given to the catchers when our pitchers perform well, but ALL of the blame goes to the pitchers when they pitch poorly.
