Hard to say. Some younger guys like Ronnie Paulino have been swinging the bat well, but I don't know much about him. Closser was supposed to be pretty good last year from what I remember.

I would look at Russell Martin. He's played really well for the Dodgers.

Russ Martin, maybe Ryan Doumit, but he's struggled this year in a split role, partly due to injuries but still...

Is Daric Barton still playing catcher? Or did they move him to 1b?

If McCann is available he'd be great. He shouldn't be though

That's not true. Saltalamacchia's hitting .200 in AA, though he's getting hot as of late. There's no reason to believe the Braves like him more than McCann, they LOVE McCann.

The Braves will NOT move McCann from the catcher position, ever. Quote me if you wish.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
