FLASH: Mets Acquire A Catcher

And only five months in!
No, I won’t sit here and criticize the Mets for acquiring Kelly Shoppach now, rather than before Josh Thole was forced into everyday use and Mike Nickeas/Rob Johnson played.
They added the perfect righty complement to Thole going forward. Let’s hope they follow up by bringing him back for 2013.
They have a lot of holes. Shoppach/Thole defensively wouldn’t be great, but should be good for a better than league average bat as a strict platoon next year.
Kudos. And obviously, if the Player To Be Named Later turns out to be, say, Matt Harvey, I will revisit. But it won’t be. Seriously, don’t worry.
