Iannetta will make Napoli look like Pokey Reese.
Baseball Prospectus thinks he's the 2nd best catching prospect, but I think he's better than Clement. What's amazing about him is that all of the players he works with love his leadership and the pitchers love his game planning and pitch calling and he is an above average fielder behind the plate and throwing guys out trying to steal and he asks the manager about things he can do to be better-- which would make him a starter in the majors by themselves. They talk about him like Varitek. But, this guy can hit like a beast, too-- which makes him a ridiculous prospect. I picked him up in my keeper on 7/7 and I am thankful he was unclaimed. I love him.

Chris Iannetta was born on Krypton and transported to Earth as an infant and saves the universe when he's not getting on base every plate appearance.
