Kind of like the Crow calling the Raven black.

Overall this season, McLouth had a .305 wOBA after putting up a .307 wOBA in 2011, and a .282 wOBA in 2010. When the league average is a .327 wOBA, that is ****ing garbage dude.
The one thing you are right on is that that was a career year for Hundley and that is it.
The last time McLouth was any good for an entire season, was the last time Bay was good for an entire season. 3 years is a LONG time in baseball. Hundley is just one year away from his career season.
...and if the Mets needed a back up then I would advocate Hundley, but they don't. For that re-sign Shoppach. Mets need a STARTER!!! not another no hit back up.
And another thing, you make it sound like finding a solid catcher is an easy thing to do, guys like Hundley are NOT a dime a dozen whereas guys like McLouth can be found all over the place, including our system.
They both suck and hence why I want no part of them.
Even including this debacle of a season by Hundley, he's still been better than McLouth from 2010-2012.
Finding guys that are less than mediocre is not what the Mets need, trading for Hundley is not buying low, is buying ****** and scrapping the bottom of the barrel to find and try to replace another ****** catcher with similar career numbers.
