Petey Paramore – 2009 Bowman

“I Yam What I Yam – A Catcher Man!”

Ah, if only the MLB draft were a big, huge event like the NFL or NBA draft – then you could have heard this.

“With the 13th pick in the 3rd round of the 2008 draft – the Oakland Athletics select Popeye, Catcher from Arizona State.”

Paramore looks like all he needs is the pipe and the can of spinach and he’s ready to play the sailor man in an off-Broadway adaptation of Robert Altman’s film.

As for the play of Mr. Paramore – well, he is a catcher. He does have some patience but not a lot of power. The A’s have a decent one in Kurt Suzuki (though he’s got little patience and struggled with power in 2010), so Paramore has a chance to make an impact if he can get his power numbers up.

Time to eats yer spinach, Mr. Paramore.
