Nickeas really seems to be the plan...

Mets really appear to be set on Nickeas as the back-up, to be honest; I thought saying they were prepared to use Nickeas as their back-up was a negotiation tool with free agent catchers. But it seems like the team is truly prepared to roll the dice with Nickeas and whether he can hit enough to be a major league back-up catcher.  I thought the perfect fit would be Kelly Shoppach, nice power off the bench with 12 HR last year and a great reputation with pitchers.  Shoppach went to the Red Sox's for a max. of 1.75M if he reaches all his incentives.  It's also reported that the Mets are on the periphery of Pudge and leaning towards Nickeas...
