I've been thinking about V-Mart and all, but have been pretty discouraged after reading that both BoSox deals have been shot down. I've also heard that Shapiro will take nothing less than any team's top talent, and I think everyone on here as come to a general consensus that we do not want to deal any of Posey, Bumgarner, Angel V, or Alderson. Without 1 of the 4, I dont think a deal would even get to started.
So I started thinking about Shoppach. I actually like the guy and realize that he is probably still worth a decent amount. But by no means is he worth any of our top talent. Now I know we want instant offense now, but he clearly has pop...he proved that last season by hitting 21 homers in 350 PAs. He'd also be under team control for a number of years and I think this a kind of way to give us a real back up/ future catcher besides Posey who is probably at least a season or two away from the bigs...this is always saying that he sticks at catcher-I thought that there was some talk on him staying there or not.
