Wilson Ramos

The word “disaster” doesn’t begin to explain the Mets catching situation in 2018. Hopefully, Wilson Ramos puts an end to that as soon as this year.

I truly believe Wilson Ramos will be exactly what this team needs. He’ll hit for decent pop while providing them with a good batting average. Maybe most important of all, he’ll give stability on defense. Even if he misses time, I think his bat will do enough to justify the signing. – Tim Boyle

He is the starting catcher. Hopefully, he logs another 100+ game season to give the Mets some stability behind the plate and get some hits along the way. – Kevin Strauss

Ramos may be the team’s most important acquisition this offseason. The Mets, who have been plagued by injuries and below-average play at the catcher position, finally have an All-Star caliber solution. Ramos will be a major upgrade on both offense and defense.- Allen Settle

Ramos will bat around .285 with moderate power. He’ll play average defense which is enough for Mets’ pitchers to feel comfortable. – Nick Scheurer

Mets’ fans are excited to finally see the catching position be taken over by such an excellent player. Ramos is a phenomenal defensive catcher and is consistently excellent as a hitter, as well. What scares fans is that he is injury-prone, but his contribution to the team will be invaluable, especially catching the Mets’ hard-throwing starting pitchers, if he can remain healthy. – Leen Amin

Ramos is going to produce when he is healthy, but he will have trouble staying on the field. He will be a much-needed veteran leader for the pitching staff. – Mark Sales

A hot start leads to Ramos’ third All-Star appearance. Injuries will derail his second half, however. – Jason Dye

I see Wilson Ramos doing a good job throwing out base runners in 2019. Hell put up good offensive numbers. Think of him as the right-handed Robinson Cano. – Steve Malik
