Should the Mets grab a veteran catcher...

I know the team already put this to bed, but I'm still not convinced of Thole/Nickeas and there apparently are some veteran catchers available. Don't get me wrong I would rather have had Pudge five years ago but on a minor league deal to see what he has left, what would be the harm.  I don't have any interest in the rest but I would definitely give Pudge a chance especially when Nickeas is the back-up and Thole struggled at times last year...

The Cardinals, Rays, Marlins, Athletics, Mets, Rockies, Cubs and Pirates all have unsettled backup catching situations at the moment, but none seems especially interested in signing a free agent. Besides Pudge and Varitek, Ramon Castro and Ronny Paulino are struggling to find jobs as well. No one from the group figures to get more than a minor league contract. source Hardball Talk
