Yes, he is Borchard's mini-me and I am delighted to have him.

 

I'd love to see the Marlins take a chance on a catcher somewhere like this.

The fact that they gave Olivo $2 million without even taking him to arbitration(still scratching my head) and almost refuse to sit him, and the only C they brought in was Baker who we could of kept for nothing just a year ago but felt fit to waive him...I doubt it happens.

He absolutely owned the PAC-10... his OPS his senior year was 1042, and I think he was a Pacific league all-star in 05. I love this move as well.

 

Wow, I feel refreshed... a move I have some confidence in from the FO.

You want to take a guess who had an OPS of 1.057 his senior year and PAC-10 All star in 1999? I'll give you a hint....graduated from Stanford....

Linden does have better career minor league stats though, with both sharing similiar time at certain leagues (One year of lots of time in AA, 4 years of AAA), with better AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS (not much in all but still better). Linden's minors BB/SO ratio of 0.52 isn't sexy, but it also isn't Borchard's 0.38.

 

I'm not saying Linden is going to be some kind of savior...but I'd rather have him then Borchard.
