Years ago it was different. In today's world, for whatever reason, pitchers don't shake off catchers a whole lot. I like to see a pitcher who has a good enough understanding and feeling for the game that he knows what pitches he wants to throw in which situations....that no matter what the catcher puts down, it doesn't mean anything to you because you know what you want to do.

My focus at the plate is trying to get on base. A lot of people say they're trying to get a hit. I'm just trying to get on base. I'm going to make the pitcher throw me three strikes. If I get the first strike and it's a good one and that's what I want, I'll hit that one. For the most part, I want to make a pitcher work and I want to get a strike to hit. If I swing at strikes, I'll be successful.
