We don't know who claimed him yet, but I wouldn't mind him here.

Pass. We don't need another catcher and I think we're set at first.

Want very much. He would be the perfect AJ replacement. Production out of a catcher would be nice.

He'd be an ample DH and can back up C/1B

What he said. I'd rather go into next year with a catcher who has some experience rather than roll the dice with Flowers.

I think the Angels would would a decent return for him.

Indeed.

Maybe not quite as high as you'd think, though. Sciosia really likes Mathis, and Morales will be back next year. They have a highly touted catching prospect in the minors (Conger) as well. They won't be giving him away, I don't think, but I don't think we'd have to lose that much.

Apparently Napoli's defense is among the worst in baseball, which is why Sciosia kept trying to give Mathis more shots (Unfortunately Mathis can't hit a lick). He does bring experience and power but if it costs too much, I'd rather stick with Flowers (I still believe he can be at least an average catcher). I wouldn't mind him if we got him though. Provides insurance and a little more pop in the lineup. (Cue people complaining about his strikeouts and base-clogging tendencies)

You got to give them credit, they are putting in claims for anybody and everybody it seems.

Must be nice.
