With Brian Schneider on the disabled list and Jerry Manuel showing a love for Omir Santos over Ramon Castro there’s a bit of a catcher controversy stirring up in Mets country. It came to a head last week against Florida when Manuel called for Santos to pinch hit for Castro with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning. This prompted last week’s poll question: What should the Mets do at catcher when Brian Schneider comes off the DL?
The results are in and 50% of you think the Mets should just get rid of Schneider and keep Santos and Castro. 17% of you voted for each of the following three options: getting rid of Castro with Santos starting, getting rid of Castro and starting Schneider or demoting Santos and starting Schneider.
Thank you all for voting.
