I don't think Sandy is going to sign Pierzinski, another lefty hitting catcher. He seems willing to give Thole the chance to platoon, or at least be the backup. Meanwhile, there are really no good FA options available. IMO, Shoppach flunked his audition. So, when you get right down to it, Arencibia is the best available option, unless Sandy pulls a rabbit out of his hat. J.P. has some pop, hits left handed pitching reasonably well (to the tune of .244 with a .500 SLG last year) and is under team control through 2016. He's our guy.
