Re: Yasmani Grandal
I very slightly lean toward Mes, but Iwant to hold on to both - at least until we get a can't-refuse offer for one.
I'd have both work on a second position also. I know three catchers is almost an inside joke, but if I'd do it for three reasons if I'm going to keep both Mes and Yas.
1. Whichever of the two is not Catching that day is probablygoing to be one of, if not the best bench bats on the bench, but you normally only use your backup catcher as a last resort unless you have a third.
2. If both can play another position you can keep their bats (and legs) fresh on days they aren't catching. Also, since they can both play another position, it would not be like you're losing a position reserve.
3. With guys like Hanigan, Fleury, Barnhart, etc. also in the system, chances are we will have the talent to carry three catchers.
I'm willing to deal one or the other, but I want to hear the other GM squealing i pain when the deal is finalized.
