I don't. But, there is something to be said for the emergency catcher. For example, a LHP starts and Norris hits him well. He comes up based loaded and they counter with a RHP. Most managers wouldn't go to Wieters there because they don't want to burn their backup catcher.

Emergency catchers play another position. On the Nationals, Harper is an emergency catcher.
