Then we agree.
This fellow Navarro has hit pretty well for the Reds.
Teams often use only 11 pitchers in the playoffs. I could see the Reds going with three catchers so Navarro can be used as a pinch hitter.
If the Reds are going to have an extra position player, not sure I can think of a better idea than keeping Navarro to pinch hit and Mes to be the backup catcher.
