The Mets need a catcher. Bengie Molina is available. The Mets will likely be interested.
Say the Mets sign Molina and pair him with Omir Santos as the Mets catchers in 2010, can you imagine the battle to keep their combined OBP above .600?
Here is a chart with Santos’ and Molina’s OBP for every year from 2001 on, Santos’ first year in pro ball. All numbers for Santos are minor league stats except for 2009.
Please, no. Don’t let it happen. I don’t want to see a two-man battle for futility.
