    d'Arnaud gets too many days off

    He's 25. He's just heating up. The guy does not need the amount of days off he gets.

    I knew that. But he still gets more days off than the average young catcher. They handle him with kid gloves. I know Recker hit a home run today, but I do not want to ever really see that guy in the line up

    When we have the second coming of Johnny Bench in reserve, I do not mind TDA getting some rest. Oh, day game after night game.

    I agree. It seems like d'Arnaud sits literally every day after night game. I think he should get around 20% of those starts. He's been swinging the bat extremely well and should have been in the lineup imo, even though Recker came up huge today.

    Thank you for taking my post seriously. One of my pet peeves around here is how people try to make you feel stupid if they do not agree with you. It was not always that a catcher got a day game off automatically after a night game, and some catchers still don't. With the amount of time this guy has missed, he should be in the lineup more. So, this is a valid point

    I agree, but in this particular instance I don't have a big issue with it because Recker hasn't played in a while. I would definitely like to see the Mets use TDA in a day game after a night game at least occasionally, but with his former knee injury I don't blame the Mets for being conservative with him for now.

    They need to protect Dar-No from injuries.

    That's why he get days off. They feel he needs to stay healthy, and a fatigued Dar-No is prone to injuries.

    Bill Plummer replaced Johnny Bench for day games after night games. Games are even longer now than they were in JB's time. Have you ever squatted repeatedly for 3+ hours?

    To be fair these guys are better conditioned athletes than the time in which Bill Plummer and Johnny Bench played. That said, regardless of what happens to D'Arnaud the rest of the season, most catchers play 120-130 games a year. It's fine imo to give him some day games after night games off. He will have that be a regular practice regardless of whether he is eventually an average, above average, or all star catcher.

    And games are longer nowadays. Lots more squatting!
