Top 10 MLB catchers for 2017

He factors into every pitch throughout the game, while also controlling the run game, aligning the defense and communicating with the bench. It can be the difference between a good, great and championship level team. So no wonder there are seven World Series titles combined among the players that make the list below...

Pirates Keep Francisco Cervelli as a Bargain

The weakest free agent class in recent memory just got weaker again, as Francisco Cervelli has now joined Stephen Strasburg in taking a mid-season extension rather than testing the open market this winter.

The Pittsburgh Pirates MVP is… Francisco Cervelli?

By Matthew Kory Everyone makes mistakes. Some marry people they shouldn’t. Some cheat on their taxes. Some refuse to eat their dinner and find out later I won’t give them dessert and then throw a holy fit that prevents me from starting my article on how Francisco Cervelli is the Pittsburgh Pirates MVP until very late.

Hitting in the clutch: Frankie Cervelli has his first 2-HR game, and it might mean his ticket out of Yankee Hell

I like Francisco Cervelli. Always have. Twice, he's been rushed to hospitals in ambulances, still wearing his NY jersey. He's a homegrown Yank, a fighter - albeit a snake-bitten one - who somehow managed to stay positive during some of the most depressing scenarios any player could imagine.
