Now everyone sees another lesson as to why you can't just stick any old fielder behind the plate as an "emergency catcher".

Baylor was famous for it. When he came to the Red Sox from the Yankees in 86, Steinbrenner famously said, "Baylor's bat will be dead by August".

To which we replied, "maybe it will, but his butt won't be!". That guy knew how to rotate a body part into an inside pitch.
