John Buck is probably the best free agent option now for catcher. I have no idea why the Royals would let him go while picking up the corpse of Jason Kendall. Teams are still convinced that veteran catchers can have value above and beyond the numbers. The search to quantify that still goes on.

Cliff Floyd is all about heart, determination, and grit.... Cliff Floyd is forecast to be a league average hitter. And a league average hitter who cannot (or is not expected to) play the field is the very definition of a replacement-level player. Indeed, the GM of the Padres agrees with this assessment, as his stated role is also the very definition of replacement-level player. That replacement-level player, with ordinary heart and determination, will cost you 400,000$. Cliff Floyd however is going to cost 750,000$. When people say that you can’t measure the intangibles, remind them that those intangibles are being paid for with tangible dollars. And the value of those intangibles, as determined by MLB, is $350,000. If it was worth more, then some team would have paid more. They didn’t."

So why is he out there? Well, with Ross Gload, you KNOW what you’re going to get. Consistency. You’re gonna get a guy that’s gonna get you five or six hits every 20 at-bats, maybe seven sometimes. You’re gonna get a guy who catches the ball and looks good scooping balls out of the dirt (lefties have that great look). Consistency. He’s not a good every day player. But he’s CONSISTENTLY not good every day."

I really think this race will come down to veteran leadership and i still think on that note the White Sox have the upper hand in that department.
