The next step in the Royals’ offseason makeover is to acquire a catcher before Dec. 12 and therefore provide an alternative to offering a contract to arbitration-eligible John Buck.http://www.kansascity.com/sports/royals/story/1557629.html

The whole reason Olivo became the starting catcher was that he had the better arm between him and Buck. I noticed that most times when the opponnents were stealing second, he couldn't even get the ball out of his glove! Yeah, he had 23 homers, but he also struck out a ton of times with runners on base. The Royals lead the league in passed balls and wild pitches. How many games did they cost us?
