A Catching Comparison

Gregg Zaun as a Ray (51 PA): .306/.333/.490
Dioner Navarro since Gregg Zaun became a Ray (41 PA): .216/.293/.324

Convert that to runs and you get a four run difference over 50 PA. That means, in the span of a half month, Gregg Zaun's offensive game alone has been worth nearly a half win more than Navarro's during that same time. Now I wouldn't expect both to continue at these levels, but anyone blaming Gregg Zaun for the Rays not winning recently is ignoring reality.
