Ianetta

Can we cut him already? He's been miserable this year. Twice recently he has struck out with a man on 3rd and 1 out. One game was against the White Sox and likely cost us a win. Can't catch. Can't hit. What's the point? Please cut him for ****s sake

The catching position is the most important position in baseball. Dipoto's love for Iannetta has killed us. He can't hit and he can't throw. I've said it many times that we could've had Russell Martin catching Halo pitchers. He knows how to call a game and he can hit. I still don't understand why Dipoto ever extended Iannetta.

Ah yes I remember it now. Not sure who would've played catcher instead, and to be fair he was good the first two years of the three year extension.

Ok, Conger has been better offensively this season, but did anyone really think he would be better than Iannetta at the start of the season? Come on now.

I was honking for KING CONGER for awhile. I was sick and tired of hole in the bat catchers aka Jeff Mathis - over better hitters aka Mike Napoli.

So...to answer your question....YES - I wanted KING CONGER to play over Ianada....Who G.A.S. if he can "frame"...if he can't hit water if he fell out of a friggin' boat. You need a threat. Doesn't have to be Johnny Bench...or Bengie Molina. I'd take Jose Molina.

Ianada is awful...

You're a 100% correct!
