Molina's injury a killer: What to do at catcher? Help!

Postby kcs261 » Wed Sep 03, 2003 8:07 pm

Allright, folks, I'm tied for first in a h2h league. This is crunch time. I also play in a strange league where we start two Cs. Bengie Molina has been one of my big surprises. Every K counts as -1 points, while every BB counts as 1 point. So, Molina was mega-valuable in the point structure of my league because he rarely K'd. This hurts REAL bad. My other C is Jason Phillips. Of these yahoos left, who do I pick up (keeping in mind guys that K take a hit in value in my league):

C. Wilson (PIT)
G. Myers (TOR)
R. Hammock (AZ)
V. Martinez (CLE)
B. Fordyce (BAL)
E. Diaz (TEX)

Any other sleeper picks people can think of? Matt LeCroy is gone, if you were wondering. Basically, any C with any potential in my league doesn't last.

Thanks for your help. Believe it or not, this is BIG!

Hammock.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Thanks for the help! :-) I can only hope now that somebody with a higher WW priority doesn't put a claim in for him just to screw me over. Anybody have a #2 choice on that list just in case that happens? I wouldn't be altogether shocked if it did. I would do it to the other dude tied with me if the tables were turned.

Yeah, Hammock is hot right now, and the rest are not going to be much use to you, so grab him. Just be aware that he still is sharing the job with Moeller, and as soon as he cools off or Moeller gets hot, he could lose most of his playing time.

Hammock losing playing time is what worries me about him. But I guess he's still the best option. Man, I win 500 bones if I win this dang league. And I start to really roll making up a bunch of ground on the guy in 1st over the last month, then this happens. Doh! :-o
