    And why do we want another guy with a bad hip?

    What's wrong with a 26yr old guy who happens to be our Aces favorite catcher? In 2010 and 2011 when Cervelli actually got playing time, he batted about .270....not to mention that he batted .300 with runners on or in scoring position and batted well into the .400's in 2011 and well into the .500's in 2010 when bases were loaded.

    I'm not saying he's a hall of famer but you guys talk about him like he's garbage.
    have you sene him play? he basically is garbage. romine could be a future starting catcher for us, cervelli can not. give romine a chance

    sadly he might be the best catcher we could start..........

    You ignore other important stats like batting avg with runners on or in scoring position but you come back with OPS? Im sure you would find a bad stat somewhere and focus on that instead of focusing on the one thing Yankees couldn't do last yr, which is hit with runners in scoring position. Clearly, Cervelli has proven he can do that on the pro level.

    You have faith in Romine as a good defensive catcher and so do I but Cervelli isn't bad on D otherwise he wouldn't be CC's favorite. Cervelli is a lot more athletic behind the plate and on the bases. All I'm saying is right now, from what WE HAVE SEEN, Cervelli has played better and there is no proof at all that Romine is better. If the Yanks thought Romine was better or ready, they would play him.

    What the hell happened to all these great catchers the yanks had in the system? Oh yeah, thats what the Yankee org sold us..

    Ofcourse I've seen him play. Do you remember seeing him hit 400 with runners in scoring position? Do yo remember CC requesting him everytime he pitched? Since when does .271 with an on base of .339 suck for a catcher?

    Romine has been given a few chances on the pro level and he looked over matched at the plate which is why the Yanks want him in triple A to see if he can hack it there first. Cervelli has proven his worth on the Pro level already so he gets the call. Seems pretty obvious and simple to me..

    For the record, I said we should let Cervelli start this season a long time ago. I'm willing to give him a full season to show his actual worth.

    I am happy cause cervelli should get the chance to start, he is more than capable of holding his own and what they did to him last year was unfair

    Is Cervelli the presumptive starter? He was below Chris Stewart on the depth chart last year. Has he moved ahead of him?

    We're becoming a retirement home for backup catchers.
