The Mets aren’t going to go after A.J. Pierzynski or Mike Napoli, or any other catcher that will cost them more than a one-year deal, I believe.
As such, Puma mentions Jesus Flores, Kelly Shoppach and Miguel Olivo, as well as Blue Jays C J.P. Arencibia and Red Sox C Jarrod Saltalamacchia, as players that will likely interest the Mets… and, I think that’s probably right.
The Mets would be nuts to trade one of R.A. Dickey or Jon Niese in a deal for Arencibia or Saltalamacchia, unless they’re simply part of what would be a larger, more significant deal.
