And you keep saying the same thing with seemingly no thought as to its ramifications. What it boils down to is "keep doing what you're doing." Yeah, maybe you'd convert a guy, though it sounds like you're pretty much just paying lip service to it (you haven't mentioned a single name). You're not coming across as someone who thinks the Reds should get aggressive about their internal options and you're actively arguing against pretty much any consideration of external options. At some point in the next year or two the Reds will be trading a veteran player and it might make sense to prioritize a young catcher as part of the return.
In the meantime your prescription is draft and wait. I agree with you that converted catchers likely won't prove a quick fix, but any fix or advancement of the timetable when you can actually produce a quality catcher would be an improvement.
And that's the point. The Reds don't have a compelling answer at catcher right now and if you look at their system, they might be in the same position for a long time to come. Some sort of reaction, some change in standard operating procedure, is warranted. And even if you're only going to draft and wait, is there perhaps a better way of picking catchers with some actual upside?
