J.P. Arencibia is am interesting player. Lots off power, streaky as any player you'll ever see and walks about once a week. If he could walk twice or three times a week and be a little less streaky or make the good streaks last longer, he would be really good.

His defense is ok, seemed to be getting better, he does seem to work at it. He threw out 29% of base stealers, up from 24% in 2011. I'll admit that I was looking forward to seeing Travis d'Arnaud, but we could do worse than J.P. I don't know if I am curious about how he would do catching R.A. Dickey. But then I want us to win. I think giving him a day off every five is a good idea anyway..
Bill James has him hitting .232/.278/.451, with 22 home runs and 67 RBI in 116 games. I'll guess 125 games, 25 home runs, 70 RBI, .240/.280/.450.
