Isn't it strange that, with all his acumen in identifying and bringing in serviceable major league catchers to the Padres, Kevin Towers has not brought it in a backup for Bard, even though the prognosis on Barrett is not good? Even while Bard struggles in grinding it out because the second string catcher is really thought of as an emergency catcher in the event the starter played 22 innings the night before?
It's a strange move for KT not to make. C'mon, show us you care with another serviceable catcher. Either that or let Colt play.
