I have been doing a lot of reading leading into the baseball season - Bleacher Reports articles on the Giants, Fantasy Baseball info/articles anything on ESPN and MLB.com - and there seems to be a bit of a debate on who is the best catcher in baseball. From a fantasy perspective I have a pretty good one in my keeper league in Brian McCann but the debate typically comes down the Yadier Molina or Buster Posey. I tend to think Buster is better offensively and Molina has an edge on defense. The majority seem to be going with Yadier as the best today.
As you can probably guess, I have a favorite and it is none other than the Giants Buster Posey. I think his offensive advantage outweighs Molina's defensive edge. The Giants' pitchers say great things about how Posey calls a game, I think his defense is underrated. What do you think? Share your thoughts on who you think is the best catcher, it could be a fun debate.
A nice little lot of cards I received in the mail today got me thinking about this and since this is a card blog I may as well share them. I picked up this 4 card lot for 8 bucks and I am very happy with the purchase.
I am really happy with these cards of the man I think is the best catcher in the game and at a great price. So who do you think is the best catcher? Any votes for Buster?
