The National League is home to the top catcher in baseball and one of the game’s best players in general, Buster Posey. Not only was Posey the starting catcher last season for the NL, but he also went on to win the league’s Most Valuable Player award later in the year.
Posey is off to another good start this season, which should lead to consecutive starts behind the plate at the All-Star Game. He has the highest WAR of any catcher in the NL and the second highest in baseball, just behind Joe Mauer.
The catcher backing up Posey for the NL is a bit of a debate. The race should be between A.J. Ellis of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals. While, in theory, both could make it, I think that the NL will likely just go with a pair of catchers instead of a trio.cheap nike nfl jerseys,wholesale jerseys cheap
And if the job can only go to either Ellis or Molina, I’d go with Molina. Molina has been considerably better offensively, and his team is also one of the best in the league. While Ellis has held his own at the plate and played well behind it defensively, Molina has the edge.
