Alderson has said that the mets are going to look internally for their catcher in 2012. He is trying to use that money for some outfielders and utility infielders. Though, if they had enough cash what is the best choice for a free agent catcher? MLB trade rumors list the available free agent catchers. Among some are Kelly Shoppach and Ivan Rodriguez. Shoppach is one of the best choices, as he had 11 homers for the Rays last season. Meanwhile, posting a .994 fieding% and threw out 40% of base stealers in 2011. Also with a 6 RDRSyr ( amount of runs player is worth defensively in 1,200 innings), he is moderately fine defensively and decent in offense as well if he can keep his avg. up.
