This guy was a popular pre-seaon sleeper at catcher. Does anyone still think that he will turn this season around to be a top 10 catcher?

I really hope he turns it around. I have him in a CBS league where we have to play two catchers and the lineup is set for the week. Once Texas gets going, hopefully he will follow.

As long as he doesn't lose his job he'll eventually be fine. Iannetta is going through the same thing. He's seeing 4.2 pitches per PA so seems like his discipline is fine, he's just pounding everything into the ground.

I can't say I ever thought he'd be top 10, but I though top 15 was likely. My personal opinion is that he'll turn it around, but only time will tell. It's not like Texas has a ton of options, so he should get every opportunity to fix whatever's wrong, he just needs to do it.

And until he turns it around, we can all just enjoy our .098 hitting catcher. Ouch, this guy is just killing me. I have him paired with Mauer so he's basically just sucking away any benefits I get from Joe.

He hit a couple balls in the air last night, thats a good sign.

Game rained out today, best game he's had in a while.

Edit : HE GOT A HIT!

I was excited about that huge 1 for 2 day but now he's started 0 for 2 (pop out, K) today already. Is there any starting player (any position) in the game performing more poorly than Gerald right now?

LaRoche is hitting .106, but at least he has a few dingers. !+)

Ryan Langerhans is in a starting platoon in left for the Braves and is hitting .054 in 37 AB.
