    Play without a catcher and add another infielder.

    Solved!

    Yeah. I go with Murph over Valdespin, Duda, or Bay.

    Actually not a bad idea when you think about it. The Mets should pool all of their square pegs that aren't fitting into round holes and see if they can find just one catcher.

    Murph gets the nod.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Murphy would be great at blocking the plate on balls and opposing runners. Problem is he would be all beaten up by the 10th game. Total.. take one for the team player that Murphy is!

    Neither Murphy or Duda can play catcher. Don't be ridiculous. We need a real catcher. Trading Murphy for a strong right hand hitting catcher would be a good move. We could put Valdespin at 2nd base and he would be our leadoff hitter if he could ever learn how to take a pitch.

    Josh Thole won't be the starting catcher next year imo, Sandy is going to get someone.

    David Ross wouldn't be a bad signing

    I would like him a lot, but I think he's going to trade for one.

    Making a move at C is such a waste. Just forget it. Not much talent at the position, don't want to overpay with money or overpay with prospects.

    So go for outfielders.

    Austin Hedges would make my day. Might have to give up a solid haul, but he would very much be on my radar.

    I think signing a guy like Pierzynski for a 2 year deal and dealing for Austin Hedges would be a great offseason at the C position. Hedges just screams early career Yadier Molina for me. Excellet defensively and a RH bat that can generate average to moderate power in the future. Should definitely stick at C.

    Although Thole is fairly under team control and young, I'd deal him if we can sign Pierzynski. Someone will be looking for a lefty platoon bat at C, and I would send Thole packing. We need power at the position, we have enough slap hitters. Roll with Pierzynski and Shoppach for 2 years and then say we trade for a young catcher like Hedges, eventually give him the job, or maybe Plawecki/Maron develops. Either way, we need to do a major haul at the position. I personally prefer a short term signing with a view on adding a top notch catching prospect too.

    AJ is going to get paid after the season he's had. The Mets won't be paying him.
