Top Young Sleeper Catcher...?

Willingham isn't going to get the playing time most likely.


I thought I heard they were working him out in LF... Karabell yesterday said he thinks he'll likely get the nod out there. With that in mind, where do you guys rank him compared to McCann?

What about Jeff Mathis? Plays in a great lineup and LAA were okay with letting Molina go in his favor. Plus, h brought in decent numbers fromt he minors. Lets not forget him.

Maybe but it isn't even like he had a great post-season. He just hit 2 HR. 16 AB, 3 hits and 6 K.

Well, his HR off the Rocket was one of the most memorable of the postseason, at least IMO.

Also, while I'll take McCann this year over Willingham, the margin is a lot smaller than when you compare them for the next 5 years. McCann is 21, Willingham 26. I wouldn't go overboard drafting Brian, but if you can get him late, go for it.

Oh, and dont' forget about Mathis.
