Seattle has 3 young catchers and Clemente is not considered #1.
It amazes me on this board that so many, if not most people, are clinging so tightly to Josh Hamilton, when this team needs pitching so badly and the free agent market is horrible.
Keeping Josh Hamilton and all of our top young players will just lead to more losing as long as we don't/can't trade one or two of them for pitching.
