Barajas or Santiago?

Postby cody4548 » Sun Mar 13, 2005 10:56 pm

Having alot of trouble coming up with my 2nd required Catcher. I waited 'til Round 26 so my options are limited. I also have been hearing good things about this Navarro kid out in L.A., but I don't know much about him after that.

Olivo if he is still around...other options would be Buck, Closser and Inge if they have managed to slip through. Santiago is not a good option.

None of these are available. It's a 14 team league with 2 catchers. Others available are: Miller, Ausmus, Matheny, Navarro, Ross, Zaun. Other than those mentioned it's a bunch of backups.

Looks like you are stuck with Barajas...ouch...that hurts 2 Cs in a 14 team league. Navarro might not be a bad flier, esp. if Ross stinks it up.

Matheny is brutally awful. So is Ausmus.

Isn't Cota starting for Pitts? And C. Wilson is still around. Santiago is like El Duque old and his recent resurrgence a couple of years ago was obviously due to some flaxseed oil from Bonds.

Cota is still available. C. Wilson is taken. Taking Cota would be a bigger risk than Barajas though, right?

Wilson is not likely to be C elig in your league. Just pointing out that Pitts could always put Wilson back behind the plate should the other two flop horribly. Cota would be a major risk. Barajas is the best choice in that lot for what it is worth unless you want to gamble on a rookie or someone who may not start.

I can only imagine how much a 14 team 2C league inflates the prices of Cs. I just finsihed drafting one today with 10 teams and when I grabbed the last "decent" C in Pierzynski it started a near panic among 5 teams. There are only about 15 decent Cs around. Plus the guys like Closser, Buck and Olivo. Going to 28 makes it really ugly for a good number of teams in that 2nd slot.
