My cat 'Baxter' is the Franklin Gutierrez of cats.
And not just in that he is good looking. He is very athleticic and can do some incredible jumps and backflips.
Truly, he is Death to Flying Things, with extreme bird-catching ability. I would estimate him to be a +20 Birdcatcher, possibly even the greatest Birdcatcher in the league. His defensive value alone is worth 2 Birdcatching Wins (10 Bird Catches per Birdcatching Win). On the MLB free agent payscale of 4.5 million per win in 2009, I thus estimate him to be worth around $8-9 Million per year.
If you are a major league General Manager and are interested in discussing the acquisition this incredible talent, just let me know!
