It's just a 89 RC+ (15th) or if you strip out the PH and 1B appearances, they go up a little to 95 or 12th best.
It's not the big problem area it has been relatively, since catching in general is scarce, but it's not as good as the raw numbers seem.
The last two months I assume, they both have picked up their game....And that has led me to at least feel like you don't have to throw money out at a veteran catcher...Our tandem looks like it will be just fine there.

Since Aug 1 (226 PAs tho I'm not sure if this counts appearances at 1B, etc), Mets catchers are a combined .851 OPS and 123 RC+, and 4th best in that time period. Yes, would be great if this is the new norm for these guys, but one can't really assume that.
