I believe we should keep Contreras and Caratini. They are both still young and I feel they will continue to get better. Surely, the Cubs have someone in the the organization that can work with these guys and their framing. Going out and getting a 35-37 year old backup catcher, to me, would be a mistake and the money could be better spent towards pitching.

I do like the idea of Whit Merrifield.

Solid take..You could think someone like Ross and others could coach them up as they trend up in their young careers. They are certainly a cost effective duo for the Cubs and should be getting better in 2020 and beyond.
