Missing Chooch.

I wonder what Carlos Ruiz is thinking right about now.


Erik Kratz, the beleaguered backup catcher, has been struggling of late. It’s easy to dismiss his performance due to his backup status however a 3 for 20 start is rough for anyone. Not to put it all on Kratz but his inability to advance runners must weigh heavy on minds of Phils fans, among other things.


I can’t help but wonder and play the “What If” game thinking how Chooch would have done in RISP situations. In his first 5 games last year, Ruiz was 6 for 13 with an OPS of 1.269. Instead, Chooch remains invisible this year due to a 25 game suspension for stimulant use.


Ruiz has talked positively about coming back but we could have really used him thus far.
