He made 3 errors last night - got credited with only 1 though. But please, continue telling us about his defensive prowess.

Jimmy has been great in his role. As good as it gets. 

And yet Jimmy has been the better framer this season.

Please stop. McCann is not as good as Grandal defensively. period

Based on what metric this season?

And why is Edwin playing over McCann? That’s the biggest question. Despite the occasional home run, not a fan of DHing a guy with an OPS of sub 700.

Do you see any hope in the Sox being able to keep James McCann by resigning him in the offseason? Or should we consider this last stretch/playoffs as his swan song in a Sox uniform?

I guess I’m not the only dummy that prefers McCann this season

i literally quoted steve stone saying this in another thread and was critical of his take, so this isn't exactly the gotcha moment you were looking for.

Not a gotcha, just stating your take that Grandal somehow better defensively is not widely shared.

PS - He's not better offensively this year either.

Fangraphs has Grandal ahead on framing 1.0 to 0.6.

BIS has Grandal ahead on framing 4 to 2.

Baseball Savant has them tied at 2 (albeit in a 150 less pitches for McCann).

Only because he’s caught more pitches. On a rate basis, McCann is better this season.

I was previously told by multiple posters on this site whenever the question of framing came up that baseball savant was the most accurate. Is that no longer the case???

Yasmani apparently has only one redeeming quality as a hitter. 

He is currently batting .292 on the road. So, let's just play Yas in away games cause he cannot apparently hit at GR Field. 🙄

He also leads the team in walks, and is third on the team (behind TA and just behind Jose) with a VERY good .357 OBP. 

This team desperately needed guys who can get on base and see pitches. It also desperately needed some balance. Yasmani provides both. As a big supporter of bringing Grandal on board, I won’t sit here and say I am tickled with his performance this year. But this is who Grandal is and always has been. An elite OBP switch hitting catcher who is also an above average framer and receiver. People who were expecting him to hit .280+ and not strike out a lot frankly just didn’t know his game very well.
