            No thread dedicated to Mesoraco or for that matter any other Catcher. Did some number hunting today based up on a comment on another thread. What I am presenting is a graph comparing the FIP of the top 5 pitchers in starts with their catcher, each box will show the FIP and the number of time's the battery worked together. I included T d'A, Lobaton and Nido, but their numbers, is some cases are skewed by the SSS. Why FIP? FIP eliminates the static of defense and uses a weighted measure for BAbip. It bases the outcome on BB, HBP, Ks and Hrs, those thing a pitcher can control.

              Catching is a black hole, but the problem is that there are no good options on the market right now, either.

              It's a bad quandary to be in.

                IMO, Plawecki is ready to be the primary catcher...not a major concern for the Mets...

                  Plaw/Mesoraco is about as good as we can expect for next year. There are few options.

                    when is d'Arnaud supposed to be ready again? and Nido isn't too far away from being a viable 2nd string catcher...defensively he's there, and do you really expect much offense from a backup catcher?

                      It's a strange position this team is in for catchers. All of them have some promise and could be a capable major league catcher but none really stand out. My money is on Plawecki for his defensive ability and relatively consistent hitting as opposed to the other three, and d'Arnaud just can't stay on the field.

                        I like a Mesoraco Plawecki platoon.
