The Winter meetings are scheduled to begin next week and up to now the “Hot Stove” has been more like the “Luke Warm Stove” but not necessarily when it comes to the catching position.
The one position where more players have been signed to Major League contracts and or traded for combined has been the catching position with 11 such transactions so far. The next closest position is 2B with 6.
The Mets have stated that catcher is an area potentially in need of attention. It seems it is also a need of attention around most of MLB as well.
Here is a look at some of the names of the remaining free agent catchers. Which if any do you think may fit with the Mets?
Josh Bard, Dusty Brown, Robinson Cancel, Ramon Castro, Hector Gimenez, Steve Holm, Rob Johnson, Jason Kendall, Donny Lucy, Gustavo Molina, Jose Morales, Dioner Navarro, Wil Nieves, Kyle Phillips, Mike Rivera, Rene Rivera, Ivan Rodriguez, Dane Sardinha, Kelly Shoppach, Chris Snyder, Wyatt Toregas, J.R. Towles and Jason Varitek.
