Posada?

Postby gopirates! » Sat Jun 18, 2005 10:27 pm

How do we know when Jorge Posada will play and when he doesn't? Does he catch for certain pitchers, but not for others? Is he going to catch for Muss tomorrow? I have a hot backup catcher right now in ryan doumit, and I want to know if I should play Posada, because I never know if he's gonna play.

He doesn't catch Kevin Brown. And for the past two starts, he hasn't caught Randy. Which is rather odd.

Torre also used to give him day games after nights games off. But that was before he stopped catching for The Unit.

Why do you think that's odd after what he said about Randy a couple weeks ago?

I guess I missed that. What did he say?

Posada called Randy out on a play where Randy was supposed to be covering home.

After not starting last night...he's benched again today with Pavano pitching !+)

I am seriously thinking about just starting Inge and leaving him in and either dump Posada or see if I can get anything via trade.
If I can't be around the computer an hour before the game starts it is just too difficult to determine if he is or is not playing. :,-(

I'm kinda thinking that PhilliesPhan is onto something. Especially with the lineups rarely being posted more than an hour before game time it's extremely difficult with some catchers to determine if they're going to be playing or not. If you've got a backup catcher that's starting earlier in the day than your main catcher you're screwed - you either play the backup once you see he's playing or deal with not having a catcher that day if your guy is benched.

In my mind, guys with catcher eligibility that play every day at another position (such as Inge) are MUCH more valuable than a guy with similar stats that's still behind the dish and gets a lot of days off.
