By mentioning Jonathan Lucroy this many times, I hope I'm ensuring that you'll get at least one answer right on the quiz.

By now, you've most likely heard that Jonathan Lucroy is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day after breaking the pinkie finger on his right hand yesterday. Fortunately, even if he has to open the season on the DL he should be ready to go by mid-April.

Sometimes we forget that Lucroy is still pretty young: He won't turn 25 until June. By starting 75 games last season he put himself in some relatively elite company: There are only eight catchers in Brewer history who have caught at least 75 games before the end of their age 25 season. How many can you name in five minutes?

The rules remain the same: Post your score in the comments but do not comment on any specific answer until after 6 pm Central time, so everyone gets a chance to try it out without having it spoiled for them. And, of course, there's no reason to cheat here, because there aren't any prizes.

Someone probably will get all of these. If it's you, post your time along with your score.

Have fun, and don't forget to post your score in the comments!

Side note: At this time a week from now we'll be discussing spring training games, so this is the last Thinker of the 2010-2011 offseason. I hope you've enjoyed them, and they'll likely return next winter.
