At this point, I don't care if he's going to eventually blossom into a decent catcher. He needs a change of scenery, both for his own good and for the good of fans who enjoy a well-played, polished game of baseball.
I guess that sounds harsh (and it's easy to say from an armchair), but this team is incredibly hard to watch, and he's a big reason why.
