"The pitchers, though, they get into a rhythm and get used to working with the starting catcher day in and day out," he said. "They develop a bond and it is comfortable for them. Eddie (Perez) did a great job. But it's tough, especially this late in the season. The offensive season he (Ramos) is having (22 home runs, 80 RBI, a .307 average), especially for the catcher's position, that's tough to replace. As far as the pitching, though, it all comes down to comfort."
