Alderson Faces Pickle With d’Arnaud and Plawecki

Most major league teams will probably not go into Spring Training with potentially two high-upside catchers showcasing their talents like the Mets will have in Travis d’Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki.

Kevin Plawecki is ready to replace Anthony Recker

First off, kudos to Anthony Recker on a three-run blast that essentially won the game for the Mets on Monday. Now onto why he needs to go.

The Scoop: Kevin Plawecki and the state of Mets catching

Flash Back: It’s 2012… Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas represent the core of Met catchers.  The Mets have poorly ranked catchers in the minors and only Camden Maron (Thole Jr.) stood much of a chance of making an impact. Flash Forward: It’s 2013… The Mets have John Buck leading the MLB team in more ways than one, Travis d’Arnaud as the anointed second coming of Mike Piazza...
