Mike Rivera, is he any good?

Postby Bostonianboy » Mon Apr 15, 2002 1:52 pm

Hello everyone. I am in a 5x5 AL only auction keeper league. I have been offered Mike Rivera $10 for my Eric munson $5. Should i do this? My other catchers are Hatteburg $1 and G. Gil $10. Is Rivera worth Munson? Will Rivera hit for any power or average? Well let me know.

Munson certainly has more talent, but he struggled mightily at AA last year, especially where his average is concerned. His star may yet rise, but it's by no means a given. Rivera has looked solid so far; I expect him to hit for decent (though not great) average with solid power numbers. Playing time is still a concern; he'll have to prove himself some more before getting the chance to be an everyday starter, but so far, so good. Add in the fact that Rivera plays catcher and Munson's catching days are likely behind him for good, and I'd go with Rivera, unless the extra $5 will be a problem for you. Better to take the bird in the hand...

Funny how things change, though.

Also funny how desperate for catching help you can get in an AL-only league... :-D
