I'm not sure if Ramos has held on to a ball thrown to him from the outfield yet this year. And whenever Henry Rodriguez comes on with Ramos behind the plate, I break into a cold sweat. Maybe it's me, but I haven't seen Ramos sprawling - or even moving his feet - to keep the breaking ball in front of him.
If an infielder is suffering through a defensive slump, he can get a coach to hit balls to him. If a shortstop is having trouble going to his right, he can address it pretty easily. If an infielder's throw to first develops a bug, he can practice until he figures out what he's doing wrong.
But how do catchers practice defense? Who throws them sharp breaking balls that land in the dirt short of the plate? How do they practice catching and holding onto seeds thrown to them from outfielders (while 200-pound base-runners come barrelling into the box from third base)? If Ramos is having trouble with his glove, how does he get his mojo back?
