If one stays no big deal, you have your starting catcher for 2012 and a comp pick. Highly unlikely both accept arb when they’re young enough for multiyear deals in this FA market.

For a trade candidate, I like Yorvit Torreabla (TEX) or Chris Ianetta (if the Rockies are looking to shed payroll).

I’ll have a post up soon with more info.

Answer…. nothing ……. they both make millions and don’t have to do a damn thing.
