I so, so, ,so, so badly wanted to talk myself into Kiner-Falefa because I have nothing going on at C, but his Statcast numbers are just so, so, so, so utterly horrible I just couldn’t do it. Now I’m in a fairly shallow 1 catcher league so that probably makes a difference, but all his peripheral numbers scream short-term fluke.
