Roto Authority posted their top 25 catcher rankings and our very own Brian McCann is on the list. Here is the top 10:
Nice to see Brian getting some love and respect in terms of being one of the better catchers in all of MLB and that brings me to my next subject.
I have read a lot of reports saying that because of Brian's knee's he probably would not be able to endure being a catcher for the entirety of his career and probably need to be moved to 1B. How accurate is this?
Everyone knows that Freddie Freeman is seen by the club as the future 1B and he is also a Gold Glover with power potential to get up to 30+ HR's a year based off of his frame. So if Freeman is at 1B what do we do then? We do have Christian Bethancourt in the wings and while he is no sure thing if he grows to be a great prospect do you guys think the team would trade McCann?? Or is all of this about him needing to play 1B in the future blown out of proportion?
