Orange County Register: Conger's hitting is back in whack

I still think Hank has the potential to develop into a .270/.750 hitter. Couple that with surprisingly improved average plus defense and you've got yourself a nifty catcher. Of course I love Iannetta's OBP, especially this year, but I do think Hank will thrive with more regular at-bats. But I don't expect anything to change, at least not through next year, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Hank be more consistent with the bat next year and play his way into more starts.

We need to go get Russell Martin if he's available in the offseason. He's the best option out there.

I think all of you guys are in need of a reality check. He hasn't had a home run since May. His slugging percentage for four months straight mirrored his on base percentage and that was at or below .300. In August his OPS was .339. His last 8 games he is .259/.286/.296 and that is considered an improvement.

 

There is nothing in Conger's past and current performance in the Majors that points to him ever being a league average hitter.

Martin is having a standout year at age 32 after 5 completely unremarkable years. So your plan is to pick up a 33 year old catcher and expect to get value out of that contract?
