Because: they are looking toward the future, catcher is shallow , Mauer is so highley touted, if he gets PT he can be the best catcher.

and because thehat said so ;-)

As for Lions...I think you're screwed, plain and simple. Your only shot is to post on the message board plus e-mail each owner if possible to explain what happened and hope they act accordingly. Unfortunately, the chances of that happening in a public league are remote.

I just looked at the FA catchers in 8 yahoo 12 team roto leagues. B Molina was available in 7. I would have tried to trade Mauer weeks ago for a RP, and picked up Molina as a FA. I had Mauer on my pre-draft exclude list.
