since I know the cafe loves to dicuss every player from David Aardsma to Tony Zuniga, I'd just like to know what everyone thinks of him. He's seems to be a very good underrated catcher.

I dont know if id call him "underrated", cbs has him ranked as the number six catcher overall -- and he's pretty much being drafted as a top 8 catcher. Which is right where I think he should be -- he's not a posada (much less lopez or martinez) but he's definitely better than estrada or aj

in short, i think he's valued right as he should be -- a mid tier catcher

I would put him in the top 10. I think however if you are going to spend the money on a catcher I would go after Kendall or Mauer

If we're talking strictly fantasy then Kendall isn't close to Hernandez, while Mauer takes too many days off.

If we're talking real life; who calls a better game than Ramon Hernandez behind the plate? The Padres are 1-6 when he doesn't start. Look at his record when they do start. He's quite good.

Hernandez is the #1 NL fantasy catcher, and probably in the top 5 overall.

The thing he gives your team that most catchers don't is every day play. He's started all but 7 games this year. On top top of that, he might be the most consistent catcher in terms of offensive production out there right now.

Yes, there are other catchers who will put up slightly better numbers in fantasy baseball, but I really like this guy and he will be a Top 5 to Top 10 catcher (if not better) for years to come.
