Raul Chavez Signs with Blue Jays

Raul Chavez has signed a minor league deal with the Jays. That I'll miss him a little says much more about the Pirates' catching situation the past few years than it says about him. Chavez posted a 63 OPS+ last year, which actually raised his career OPS+ to 44. He can't hit at all. The only thing he did right was not mess things up behind the plate, and there are about a million journeyman AAA catchers who can do that. Unfortunately, the Pirates' catcher in 2007 was a major leaguer who couldn't.
