Ronny Paulino, this years McCann?

All I know is that Paulino can hit. He hits a TON of line drives up the middle. It's only a matter of time before he hits more out of the park, but it still won't be a lot thanks to PNC's huge LF area.

I think he'll be batting 6th (at least I hope), so he might get quite a few RBI's this year if the offense picks up. If you're in a deeper league, I think he's a really good grab. ;-D

As much as i love Paulino i also love Napoli, and i am on the fence right now in my slow draft which one to get, its a start two catchers league and there are 12 teams.
even though Napoli has a bad BA it doesnt matter cause my league is OPS


is napoli better than Paulino?

I think Paulino has the better job security and has shown that he can hit major league pitching.

Don't look now, but two more hits today, in the Spring, (I know its only spring training) BUT, I noticed that he is throwing some extra base hits, in there.....

SPRING STATS:

18 Hits, in 31 at bats.... ;-D .516 avg.

Of those 18 hits, 2-2B, 1-3B and 2-HR

I got him in a 12 team Keeper Auction, as my 2nd catcher, (we start 2 catchers, weekly)

Mauer $15 (keeper)
Paulino $9

They hit him in the 3 spot today...went 2-3 with 2 RBI's and a double. :-)

Obviously he won't hit 3rd during the season, but like I said before, he'll be a great 6 hitter if they put him there.

This thread rocks. I am getting ready for my draft tomorrow, and I have Paulino, Ianetta, and Napoli as the three guys I am targeting as a C once all my other positions are filled. I did the same thing last year, with McCann #3 on my late catcher list and I got him.

Hopefully everyone's right on these guys, too. ;-D
Be excellent to each other.
