Navarro just sucks behind the plate.

Is his bat really worth it?

I've said time and time again, he has some trade value as a DH. That's what we should do with him.

 

Not real happy with Castillo either. Both seem to be cut from same cloth.

 

Suem has a bromance with Wellington though.

 

What is Sveum going to say? My catchers are bullS@#$? He is playing the hand he is dealt.

I can't really remember the last time the Cubs had a great catcher.

Well, Soto, when he was good.

A quick google search brought me this list... not too good for the modern era catchers.

Soto was a average Defensive catcher. Bat really sucked.  All you really need is someone who is + defensively and that can hit .240-.260. Too many moving parts to a catchers game to get +D and + hitting.

Really like AZ's approach at the plate. Go with the pitch an don't swing fences. Keep the line moving.
