    bounty of catchers?

    Just wondering...could we maybe move him to another position?

    56 games/206 AB
    .296 BA, .410 OBP, .510 SLG, .920 OPS
    10 HR, 40 RBI, 41 BB, 57 K

    I haven't seen a report that calls him better than Mesoraco.

    Doesn't matter,you don't make a racehorse pull the plow because you have two. You sell one and buy two good mules and a riding horse.

    I've read in the minor league thread that Grandal may not stick at catcher. I think a move to 3B would finally give us a future replacement for Rolen.

    Which of the 4 is considered to be the best defensively? I think we know that Mes projects to be the best offensive threat.

    Are you referring to Mes/Grandal/Hernandez/Hanigan or Mes/Grandal/Barnhart/Fleury? In the first case it's Hanigan, in the second Barnhart.
