Is Navarro pencilled in as the starter? If so, does anyone have any projections? Is B Molina a possibility?

It will be Navarro for now - Benji is out of the picture.

8/10 Hrs - 40/40 rbi/r - .240 BA - but the staff likes throwing to him.

Yep, looks like Navaro as the starter and Alomar Jr. as the backup until the other catching prospect is ready and that could be in 2007, then it's up in the air. Here is the latest from the LA Daily News regarding Benji...

Molina told the Yuma (Ariz.) Sun over the weekend that he will sit out the upcoming season if he doesn't receive the salary he is seeking, which is believed to be in the $6-million range. ...

"I got a pretty good idea of what they were looking for, and it's not something we're inclined to do right now," Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Sunday. "We're fine, in my mind, if we open the season with (Dioner) Navarro and (Sandy) Alomar and if we have Russell Martin at Triple-A gaining more experience. That won't bother me one bit."

Alan Nero, Molina's Chicago-based agent, said Sunday he was unaware the Dodgers no longer were interested in his client. Jackson writes that the Dodgers never formally offered Molina a contract.

I think Navarro will be lucky to get 60% of the C ABs. I don't think he will a even a decent contributor in any 5x5 category. Unless you are in liek a 12 team NL-only league, I don't see a reason to be interested in him.
