CARDS ON THE TABLE
Ryan Pressly pulls curtain back on what makes Astros catchers so valuable
Astros All-Star closer Ryan Pressly joins ESPN Houston's The Bench and dishes on his career, as well as why Martin Maldonado is so important to the Astros' success.
Pressly has positive things to say about both Maldonado and Yanier Diaz, but the big takeaway from Pressly's comments was not only about how much Maldy prepares the game plan for each pitcher.
But also how all that prep can go out the window based on what Maldy is seeing from a hitter's swing in that particular at-bat.
Something even the pitchers don't see as well as him.
