Best Catcher?

SDS

Who do you think is the best catcher in game?

I just stopped using my cap. I felt like something was weird with his swing. I raked with Ketel Marte live series so I used Martes swing for cap along with his height and weight. Didn’t have as near good production even with a lot better stats than Marte,

So...

I have Posey, but I have been hearing a lot of good things on Wieters. Also I’ve heard Sandoval rakes. Is it worth the lack of defense to put him behind the dish?

I’d keep trying different swings with your cap. Posey is good but his production doesn’t really match his stats. He should be one of the best hitters in the game, but the ball doesn’t jump off his bat like it should. I have Biggio behind the dish and has been really good. Honestly I’m waiting to see if adley gets a 99 overall like mize and adell

Honestly I used a lot of good catchers but my best stats wise was Gary Sanchez between him posey Rodriguez piazza and biggio I still hit best with Sanchez for some reason

SDS

Best catcher! It's so easy !! MATT WIETERS!! BY A mile

SDS

Gary Sanchez just obliterates the ball. It doesn’t feel right having an 87 overall card starting above my Posey or Sandoval, but I swear Sanchez hits a homerun every game.

SDS

My little 5'5" cap is better than any other catcher in the game.

SDS

Posey rakes against lefties.. And his d is elite.. A lot of people love weiters, or biggio if you have him

SDS

Gary is too good for me to consider using anyone else.

SDS

I’ve been using Biggio and Torre. Neither hit for much power for me but they are good to get on base

SDS

Offensively its FotF Santana, but hes awful defensively.

SDS

With revamped catcher blocking this year, I value blocking/fielding/arm more than offensive production at the position.

Posey or Wieters are my moves.

SDS

Biggio or Wieters.

LS Carlos Santana

SDS

Sandoval or your cap are the best options.

I think you overrate that rating way too much. I don't see much of a difference with Kyle Schwarber catching in BR vs any diamond catchers.

That hasn't been my experience. I've noticed a huge discrepancy between not only the frequency, but also the severity of passed balls between different catchers of different block ratings.

Sandoval Or Wieters

It depends on how often you throw in the dirt. Gomesdalegend did a test and while there are diminishing returns at a certain point, blocking stat IS important and determines whether they keep the ball in front of them or not.

87 Joey Bart and there isn’t anyone else that should be discussed

SDS

I’ve tried them all. No one could hit above .260 for me (Biggio) so I finally found Jason Kendall. Not great defensively but great hitter
