How to find out when your C is taking a day off?

Is there any good way to get this info in time to plug in your 2nd Catcher?

The best ways are as noted in the other thread. Day game after a night game is a good indication.

However, if you're looking for a way, the lineup cards are usually posted on yahoo an hour to a half an hour before game time. Since you can make cahnges up to five minutes before the games starts, if you click on box score and he's not in the lineup, replace him with your backup. Tough to always be at the computer that close to game time but if you can be there, that should work. ;-D

By the way, Barrett caught Maddux again yesterday, so it looks like we can throw that out as an indicator.

Yeah Dusty has said no specific matchups this year. Blanco should be starting with Prior tomorrow they said on the game today. Also heard Raul Chavez will catch Oswalt regularly, as well as Snyder in AZ catching Webb.

Factors include day night as stated above. Extra innning games and a game in severe heat also indicate a day off the next day at times.

Starting catchers usually take a day game after a night game off (usally Thursdays) and Sundays.
