I dont think he can. Plus he cant hit. This looks like a case of the Pirates just spending to spend.
People might look at this as a good move because they are spending, but I just cant get excited about a catcher who is on the decline.

Sanchez had no business being the 4th overall pick - this seemed like a combination of drafting for position as well as a money thing. He was supposed to be 2nd or even 3rd round.
He will never live up to his draft pedigree, and may never even be a starter. At any rate, he definitely hasn't shown he is good enough to be a starter this season, especially with only 206 ABs in AAA.
His 2010 injury problems really set him back pretty much a full year.
But anyway, he can't really be viewed as a marquee prospect. He will end up getting his feet wet this year and hopefully can stick on the big team next season. Signing Martin for only 2 years leaves the spot open for Sanchez to hopefully seize. His defense is getting close, but he's got a long way to go at the plate.
Yes. They wouldn't be in this postion if the #4 overall pick was even close to ready by now. And on top of that I heard he's woe-is-me'ing it on twitter. Saying like gee I knew it wasnt going to be handed too me, guess I gotta work harder....
Of course, they wouldn't be in this position either if they just drafted Matt Weiters
