BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Paul Hoover has always been an underrated president, but that's only because he is so universally disparaged. He's got a strong record in public works and helmed the ship during the worst confluence of economic disasters the United States has ever seen.
2010 After 10 seasons at Triple-A, third catcher Paul Hoover's used to being dammed up, but there's no hidden torrent of hits waiting if the floodgates were opened.
2009 Hoover, whose moment in the sun was breaking up John Maine's 2007 no-hit bid, gets a cup of coffee each season since catching is hard to come by. His numbers at Triple-A are deceiving with three separate stints there just in his time with the Marlins, and he has never shown solid strike zone recognition whenever he makes it to the majors. The Marlins designated him for assignment in September, with Hoover declaring his free agency soon after.
2008 Catch-and-throw backup catcher Paul Hoover is third in line for playing time following the dismissal of Miguel Olivo.
2007 Paul Hoover finally got a chance to play when Matt Treanor reinjured his shoulder. Of course, he only wound up getting five plate appearances, but he still out-VORPed Treanor.
2003 The smart money was on Hoover to get some garbage time in the majors in 2002, but Tampa’s inexplicable inability to move John Flaherty for anyone blew that plan. Hoover is your standard-issue Triple-A backstop: younger than many, reliable defensively, and not likely to make a team look like idiots for calling him up in a pinch. Signed with Florida, where Torborg likes to have a third catcher around, so he might stick.
2000 Leave it to the Devil Rays to find a catcher who can run. Actually, Hoover has emerged as a good prospect, and his rapid progress made LaMar feel comfortable enough to trade Cota. Previously a shortstop, he is already adequate defensively and getting better. If he hits Double-A pitching in his first attempt this year, his future looks promising.
