Carlos Zambrano and Dusty Baker gushed openly (and embarrassingly) about the job Henry Blanco did in his first start behind the plate.“Henry likes to call a lot of fastballs,” Zambrano said. “Be aggressive and get ahead in the count — it helps you a lot.”
Baker stopped short of saying he would make Blanco Big Z’s personal catcher, but he liked the way they worked together.
“Carlos is still learning,” Dusty said. “He’s aggressive by nature. I think sometimes Carlos tends to get a little bored and make up stuff while he’s out there. Henry kept his train of thought and focus straight.”
White’s next start should come Tuesday when Mark Prior is expected to make his first start of the season.
