Don't mistake this for me saying he's the best catcher in the game or anything like that, but it's not like they have some scrub back there.
Yep. He was pretty decent last year at the plate and that was after missing time for the suspension and then again because of injury. It's not like there were a lot of better options out there. Trading for Wieters would not only have us looking at handing out another really big contract in a couple years, but it would cut into a farm system that is already lacking in high level prospects.
