In response to andrewmitch's comment:
We won the WS with Ross as the catcher. Why do we need to "upgrade" at that position? I want a glove there. For years I wanted G Laird; so someone like him. Ross was really the "10th Player Award" winner of the post season. That's the kind of guy I want catching for me.
Because Ross is not a full time catcher... never was. Did you not notice his grey beard? He is no spring chicken. I want Ross to stay... but he can't play 120 games. 50-60 maybe.
Salty KO's way too much, and defensively he is sub-par.
If we don't get McCann, the Yankees will.
First, I never said that Ross is THE man. What I meant was Ross is the TYPE of Catcher that we need and that I want.
Second, da team from da bronx ain't getting McCann if they want to stay under 189, keep Cano, and replace all the other talent they are losing (2 SPs, Closer, 40 HRs, 3B, SS, etc etc etc) plus the ONE position where they have any hope of ever filling internally is catcher and the last thing they need is another future DH......It would be a stupid move. But hey, Cashman may actually do it. In fact, I encourage you to encourage him to do so!
