    Mets Claim Catcher From Cubs

    @AnthonyDiComo
    The #Mets claimed a catcher off waivers from the Cubs. His name is Anthony Recker. So there is that.

    In brief, this guy has shown average hitting ability in the minors batting about .270-.280 with 10-15HR power and about a .350 OBP. So not too shabby for a C in the minors. That said, he has Mike Nickeas hitting stats in the majors and he's 28.

    If anything, he provides added C depth. And gives Nickeas some competition a la Rob Johnson. Doesn't hurt, so good move, but really a non-impact move. Unless he pulls a Dickey and becomes Mike Piazza--the likelihood of which is about 0%

    Make sure the cotton socks stay to the left.. that's how I do it. Or you can let a old pro like FOC teach you a few things... He has been doing this for centuries.

    I'll take him. Hopefully this means the end of Josh Thole.

    His career best stats happened in PCL Sacramento.

    I wouldn't put much stock in his acquisition, a lot of guys see their stats skyrocket in the higher elevation parks in the Pacific Coast League.

    He's depth but you can't expect much out of a 28 year old catcher with limited major league at bats

    Hey, didn't you ever hear of Crash Davis? Oh wait, that was just a movie.

    Now there's no reason to insult the Kansas City Royals like that.
