Let the Tickertape Rain Down

Hooray for backup catcher/rotting corpse Wil Nieves, who last night notched a single to raise his line to .042/.042./.042. The liner to left was Nieves's first major league hit since 2002. Of course, the slow-footed catcher tried to stretch his cute little hit into a double and was thrown out by 10 feet, so he has still contributed literally nothing on offense in five years.

This dude is so far below replacement level he can't even see Clay Bellinger from where he squats. I never knew it was possible to miss John Flaherty so deep in your soul.
