TRS86 of the Real Dirty Mets is posting an interesting series that is worth reading and checking out. He is doing a position by position breakdown of all the NL East teams and ranking them accordingly.
He started with the catcher position where he ranked them as follows:
#1 Brian McCann
#2 Wilson Ramos
#3 Carlos Ruiz
#4 Josh Thole: Bet you thought he would be last huh? Well almost only counts in horseshoes. There is no doubt that currently Josh is a below average catcher. Our high hopes for him were dashed last year when his .723 OPS took a dive to .690 in his first full year. The bright spots are that he still does not strike out much and managed to hit .264 with a .345 OBP, unfortunately that OBP was higher than his SLG %. So currently he is a slow version of Luis Castillo. He has also got a lot of work to do defensively. He had early issues with his game calling as well as a pitiful CS % of 22%. In other words the only thing that saves him from being dead last in the division is just how bad this next guy is.
# Dead Last John Buck
I’m not sure I agree with Buck finishing last to Thole, but you can check out why he thinks so and form your own opinion.
