To be honest with you all, it's difficult sometimes to dwell on negative stats for players who work hard and are popular not only with teammates and fans, but also cooperative with the media.

That said, the diminished production from Braves catcher Brian McCann cannot be ignored.

While he's still putting up some decent/good numbers for catcher, including a pace for about 20 homers and 75 RBIs, this isn't what we've come to expect from the six-time All-Star who has been the best-hitting catcher in the National League and arguably in baseball during the period since McCann debuted in 2005.
