Well Torealba was the projected starter for the Rockies but he's been banged up and has hardly played this Spring. Chances that he will start in the Majors is so-so, and I don't think there's a chance now he starts.

Right now, the starter is Danny Ardoin IMO. He's fantastic defensively and has improved at the plate. I'd like Eli Marrero to be the backup, but I don't think he will be as he is so versitle.

So IMO on opening day it will look like this:

Starter (batting 8th): Danny Ardoin
Backup: Yorvit Torealba
Extra Catcher: Eli Marrero

If Yorvie is injured and isn't on the opening day roster, its a toss up between Closser and Ojeda (as I said I'd like Marrero)

*phew*

But anyways, that was kind of a little ramble. I like to talk about the Rockies. ;-D Either way, I wouldn't want a Rockies catcher on my fantasy team unless its a very deep league where you start 2 catchers.

Well, Closser was bad last year. He was never known for his defense, and that was horrible last year. Couldn't throw out a runner to save his life. But, he was known for his bat in the minors, and that was bad too. I think his average was .219! :-o

So, he didn't play very much once Ardoin established himself at the end of last year, and will likely have a fresh start in AAA this year. He's actually done well this Spring though, so who knows.

I think Willingham can play LF.
