Catcher Remains an Open Position for the Braves

In my latest addition to the About.com page I run, I put the spotlight on behind the plate. With Christian Bethancourt's struggles giving us nightly viewings of the A.J. Pierzynski Show, is it time to look elsewhere? If not, when is that time? In this article, I look directly at the recently signed Ryan Lavarnway.
