Despite being the best catcher, free agent J.T. Realmuto's asking price of over $150 million might not be worth it to the Mets. Todd Zeile believes catcher James McCann is a cheaper option that isn't that much of a drop-off from Realmuto. It would be more beneficial to get a George Springer and add pitching depth. Maybe there's a chance Realmuto takes less money because it wants to win.
