What do you do about double headers?

Postby markj11 » Wed Sep 06, 2006 4:29 pm

You know your catcher wont be playing both games, is there anything you can do? I'm guessing besides having someone like Willingham in you're going to lose a start at that position.

There's really nothing you can do as far as I can see.

You pick up a catcher to use on an off day for your regular catcher's team, and that will make up the game you lost to the doubleheader. ;-)

:-? How do you lose a start? Your catcher will still play 1 game on the day.

I'm with you now :-B

Nothing you can do unless you have roster space to pick up a catcher to play when your NO. 1 sits or has no game. t's very unusual to get the maximum use out of a catcher position anyway so I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

Ya same, unless he's Joe Mauer...

I do hate double headers though - in the end, I never get the full value of the games missed :-P
