Josh Thole will compete with Omir Santos this spring training to be the Mets’ starting catcher, GM Omar Minaya told NJ.com….”I think Thole is going to compete for a job in spring training,” Minaya said. “We’ll see how he plays coming off a very good year. He led the league in hitting in Venezuela (winter ball). With Thole, where is he? Do we rush him? Does he take the job?”
Maybe now we can dispense with the hand-wringing over the Mets lacking the money to sign a fourth-string catcher.
