The Thursday Thinker: Worn out backstops

New, 16 comments

Can you name the catchers who have been as active as Jonathan Lucroy was in 2014?

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

As we've discussed Gold Glove and now Silver Slugger Awards this week, we're reminded of a pretty significant factor regarding Jonathan Lucroy: He was able to remain consistent and effective through the 2014 season despite catching a lot.

Lucroy led all NL catchers with 136 appearances behind the plate this season, which is also more than any NL catcher caught last season. In fact, this is only the 22nd time in the last 15 seasons a Senior Circuit catcher has played behind the plate this often.

So, here's today's quiz: How many of the most oft-used NL catchers of the last 15 seasons can you name in eight minutes?
