Why on earth would you ever need to carry three catchers?if the 5 man rotation and the top four relievers perform as they should, I don't think it matters who fills out the rest of the staff. I like the old days when teams carried 10 pitchers, (with a four man rotation, the fifth guy being long relief and a spot starter), had 8 position starters and a bench with 7 guys on it. You could carry three catchers, have a pinch hitting specialist plus a couple of back-up infielders and out-fielders. the over-use of the pitching staff in recent years, (the number of pitchers used), has eliminated real depth in the roster.
