Comparitavely speaking, is this the worst collective group of catchers that MLB has ever assembled? With a few esceptions (Posey SF, Molina STL, Mauer MINN) this current group is a collection of bottom of the lineup weak bats. 5 in the Nl are projected 8th and 4 are 7th in the lineup. 7 of the 15 AL teams have them batting either 8th or 9th.
What happened to the Campanellas, Berras, Munsons, Carters, Fisks, Pudges, Benches, Piazzas et al ?? My God.
Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !
Matt Wieters in Balt and C. Santana in Clev are also two pretty strong catchers at the plate. Also Rosario Col and Perez in KC could become some real solid bats as well. Some talent still around at catcher position hitting wise.
What about Ruiz of the phillies. I am just hoping it was not the drugs he was taking that made him so good last year. For the most part you guys are right about catchers not being what they used to be.
