But even though he was a liability...the Yankees still played well year in and year out.
And Arencibia is not the reason why the Jays are 11 games back. Maybe he lost you a game or 2 overall...but is that less than what he has won with the bat?
Nope JP isnt the reason why we are where we are, but once this team is ready to contend, I wont feel comfortable with him behind the plate. It wont really be a issue anyways, I think Travis d'Arnaud is the teams future catcher.
