One thing to note about the Doumit trade that I haven't seen noted is that he has very good numbers against right-handed pitching, which is an area that Gattis really struggled with.
I agree that the Braves probably see Doumit as more of a pinch-hitter off the bench than an every-game catcher. He's probably more of Reed Johnson's replacement than he is Brian McCann's.
This does definitely mean we want Bethancourt to spend another year in the minor leagues.
Which all makes me pretty sad we gave up Gilmartin for Doumit, despise Gilmatrin's poor recent / injury history.
Why be sad about losing Gilmartin? He had clearly fallen down the prospects list. The Braves won't miss him and got a guy that could be a very valuable piece in 2014 for the major league club.
At best Gilmartin turns into Scott Diamond 2.0 for the Twins, another guy the Braves traded to the Twins. Both are very lowly ceiling guys that aren't missed.
