Things are becoming clearer

Bernardo Fallas notes that things are starting to make a little more sense for Brad Mills regarding the catcher spot:

On Towles:
“He's done a real good job. He's hustling, working with pitchers, calling games, receiving, throwing and also swinging the bat.”

“I think things are going real well. I think my relationship with the pitchers is getting a lot better, and I feel I'm getting to know the guys a little better and getting more comfortable with them. And I'm swinging the bat pretty well right now.”

I still think that, because of Towles' crimes against humanity with the bat (in a good way), he'll start the season in Houston, and Jason Castro will head to Round Rock for some more seasoning. But if not being comfortable is what it takes for Towles to succeed, then he should be the next Joe Mauer, because as soon as Castro looks like he's ready he'll be up.
