Maybe this will give him an attitude adjustment to refocus...I like his quote, maybe the demotion will help him get back to where he was a few years ago...

Great move. Paulino needs to refocus on basics, and Doumit deserves his chance.

It helped Jay Bell and it helped Jeff King. Maybe it'll help Paulino.

ONce again a departure from last season. Great move.

"We need a third catcher so I can use the second one and still have another in case of injury", said Big Jim Tracy time after time for the last two years.

Well, hell, we got a third catcher, one day away. Relax Jimbo, that's one more bench player we now have.

You almost couldnt consider Doumit a catcher last year, as he was seeing regular time in the OF with Nady hurt, and Bay's knee

And especially because the previous management was convinced that he couldn't catch, but loved Paulino.

First game in Indy...Paulino rocks a 5-5 with 2 homers and a 2B. How long would he have to tear up AAA before they called him back up?

From what they said, he's going to have to also show improvement in defense and conditioning.

ya its not so much about the bat that frustrates me, its the lack of leadership behind the plate, coupled with the poor defense, and he just plain looks fat and slow. :mrgreen:

The talk last year and the year before was how the pitchers loved his game calling and how the team's ERA was lower, when he was in the lineup, than Doumit and Cota

Funny how quickly that can change in a year's time. ;)
