Attention Jorge Posada Owners

It appears as if we're getting a personal catcher situation with RJ and John Flaherty. Everything I've heard from Joe recently indicates that he likes the team of Flaherty and RJ and he likes it as a way to get Flaherty some regular PT every 5th day. Here's rotowire's report...

Randy Johnson (P) NY-A - Jun 17

Johnson pitched a complete game five-hitter with 11 strikeouts and no walks to beat the Pirates 6-1 on Thursday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: "This could have been the best [start] all year," said manager Joe Torre on the Yankees' official site. "He had electric stuff, no question." This is two excellent starts in a row for the Big Unit; he appears to be ready to return to form. In a side note, John Flaherty has caught Johnson his last two starts, and Torre has indicated that Flaherty will catch Johnson again his next time out.

I don't own him this year but I always thought the whole personal catcher is a great thing for fantasy managers. Catchers take a lot of days off and with the backup being one pitcher's personal catcher you can start a replacement on that day.

Thanks for the tip AT! I was sure they would DH him yesterday; he has been on quite the tear.

Victor Martinez used to DH on his "days off" last year. That was an ideal situation for fantasy owners.
