Whatever Works For Him

Sandy Alomar will be behind the plate tonight catching Mark Buehrle. I don't believe in the power of one catcher to improve a pitcher's performance. I think work such as that in Baseball Prospectus's Baseball Between the Numbers has debunked any such myth. But if having Alomar back there coincides with some consistency from Buehrle, then hey, I'm all for it. I don't care if the reason is Alomar's game calling, Buehrle's comfort level, or pure luck. So, if Buehrle looks good again tonight, then a tip of the cap to you, Miss Corningstone, or Mr. Alomar, whichever.
