OPS+ of our catchers this season:
Yorvit Torrealba 34
Chris Iannetta 85
Which is saying that Yorvit's been worth one third of a league average batter, while Iannetta's been worth about 85 % of one. Neither is what we'd want, but Chris is a whole lot closer so far. Today he gets what's become a fairly rare opportunity to start again. Jeff Baker is also in the lineup, as is Omar Quintanilla again. Seeing a strong game from these three will give Clint Hurdle a lot more confidence in the state of the team than he currently possesses. Me too, let's hope they step up today.
