Let me be the first to say it

Bench Kendall. Kendall Who? Mike Rivera for Everyday Catcher!

Mike Rivera says “I’ll see your HR and raise you” by doubling Kendall’s season HR output in just two at-bats. Rivera has two home runs (his first multi-home-run game) and five RBI (a career high.) And it’s just the fourth inning.

Ok, but really, as long as we’re shaking up and showing folks that no one is safe, why wouldn’t Melvin take a chance on Rivera. The poor guy has put in his dues. Give him a long-term trial to see if he’s the catcher of the future or not. Or give him enough playing time that some other team will want to trade something decent for him – I’m just sayin….
