    I'm not too bothered either, but I don't know where we go to replace him. I wouldnt mind seeing romine/sanchez get a shot, and I know sanchez is young but being thrown into the fire could be a good thing (ie manny machado)

    I don't want Pierzynski either. Cashman is making a trade. Prepare yourselves...

    I like his mentality right now. That's why Kuroda also accepted his 1-year deal with us.

    Kuroda took one year because he's was only looking for a one night stand.

    Mets and Yankees now looking at the same pool of FA catchers -- except Napololi.

    Mets fans ssy Josh Thole sometimes looked like a deer caught in headlights last season. The position requires another level of presence, maturity and confidence.

    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    We have a full time DH rotation. Of A-rod, Jeter.

    What if Jeter doesn't come back strong enough to play SS and Nunez is our short stop and Jeter becomes a full time DH?

    Now you have a 15 million dollar catcher who catches half your games.
