We all know that Evan is in the Bigs because of his hitting. He reminded us a few nights ago of that, which is great to have. The dude is a legit masher.The problem is that a catcher is the most important position along with Shortstop, if not more and the White Bear is as clumsy as one behind the plate....and it worries me.
So far in the short season we have seen ugly wild pitches or passed balls, failed plays off bunts, failed tags after catching good throws, bad framing of pitches,including "selling" strikes which Mac was very good at.
I see Gattis as a good trading chip for the American League, where he can serve primarily as a DH because man oh man, I do not see us going too far with him as our primary catcher.
Anyone else feels this way?
