      Or, you know, one less than some Italian guy that used to play with the Seals…

      The dreamer in me hopes that Sanchez will hit like Miggy Cabrera. But, I am prepared that he just may be the next John Ellis.

      Ellis wasn’t a good defensive catcher, which is why he played some first base almost from the time he was called up. He also had the misfortune of being a catching prospect in the Yankees’ system at the same time the Yanks came up with Thurman Munson. He was a decent hitter for a catcher, and he managed to stay in the big leagues for part of 13 seasons.

      Sanchez isn’t John Ellis. He’s almost certainly not John Bench, either.

      How about Charles Johnson?

      Charles Johnson struggled at the start of his career, but turned in a couple of All-Star seasons, was an outstanding defensive catcher who won 4 Gold Gloves, even got some MVP votes one year, and was the starting catcher on the Marlins team that won it all in 1997.

      You really can’t project much better than that for Sanchez at this point, but given his start, Charles Johnson’s career (22.6 bWAR) would be a little bit of a disappointment.
