James McCann has a 3.4 WAR this year according to baseball reference, he works hard on game preparation and is loved by the pitching staff according to reports. Can anyone remember the last time we had a catcher with a 2+war not called AJ ? Before I get into why I am creating this thread I want to say one thing. I really like McCann, I don’t know why but I do. From a rebuild perspective he is the one win from our pro scouting so also gives me hope our organisation are not poor talent evaluators. Everything is pro McCann.... except his second half numbers! I’ve posted these stats at the bottom. For those of you who love tradition stats the first numbers are average, OBP and slugging. For those of you who like more advance states he is about 25% below league average at hitting. THe saving grace is a lowish .296 babip (406 was his babip in the first half). This could all simply mean the first half and second half is what he is overall and neither explain fully who he is. A .275 average hitter with some pop and good defence. I’d take that any day of the week. So my questions to you all are. who is the real James McCann the first half, second half(or what I call Detroit McCann) or somewhere between? Is he our catcher of the future? If so would you extend him and for how much ? 222 .275 .403 .679 71 3 4 1 0 0 2 .296 71 75
