Thanks for toeing the rubber on Labor Day, even if I didn’t listen until my commute this morning.

BTW I think you were looking at 2019 FA class for catchers, not 2018, since the guys you mentioned (Grandal, Mesoraco) aren’t FA until after next year. But the point remains the same that the C FA class will be weak (Avila, Lucroy, and chum,) and Beef should opt out.
