Some of those are nicely shocking. Glad to see Knizner as the best def C. That always seemed to be the big difference between him and Kelly, in that Kelly was much more advanced behind the plate supposedly.
Nice to hear on Knizner. A few games ago, I heard McCarver say that up to this point he has been thought of as a hitter who happens to catch, and the hope/plan is for Knizner to evolve into a catcher who happens to hit. I’ve not been disappointed in what I’ve seen thus far either, although I don’t see how he gets a real shot to play next year without Yadi going down in a bad way. 2021 will be the year.
