I definitely didn't see this coming and hated the idea when I first heard about the trade but I am warming up to it. When you look closely at the three catchers there isn't much that seperates them except age. Supposedly neither were interested in the Mets initial offer of 3/$21M, both wanting a 4th year. In the case I'm fine with Lo Duca and Castro.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
