I think from a fantasy standpoint there are a couple of players who have catcher eligibility who are worthy of a late round pick or maybe a couple of bucks in an auction.

I'm high on Matt LeCroy who has catcher eligibility for next season and will probably be batting every day either as a catcher, DH, or 1B. Robby Hammock of the D-Backs is in a similar situation only on a NL team. They keep him in the line-up either at catcher, 3B or OF. These two player's positions flexibility makes them very attractive to a fantasy owner. ;-D

I noticed the Jays re-signed Greg Myers who had a career year for them last season. If he repeats (at 37 that would be a miracle), look for them to get him some ABs at DH. Will definately be a last round pick or easy $1 player in a draft, but could be worth it.

LoL, please bro. I watch 160 Yankee games a year. Since Girardi left and Posada has started everyday, he gradually declines later in the year. This year was an exception. Look further bro, I'm not an idiot.

I took it upon myself to look at the stats. This year WAS an exception, like I said. The past 2 years, either his power or his average dropped off. That's why the Yanks got Flaherty. They wanted a C that could give him more days off to avoid that late decline.

I swear, sometimes fantasy makes people think they know more than they do. For the past 2 seasons, they've had interviews with Torre on how he wanted Posada to stop wearing down late in the season.

If it helps any, Mazzili is supposedly run happy. That should up I-Rod's steals a bit.

Did 2 different people make those 2 posts? :-? Sounds like 2 completely different people to me. :-?

Anyway, I'm not one of the ones worried about Posada's endurance. Sure, catchers do tend to get tired toward the end. It's not a big surprise, but if he's the best of the best, I'll happily take him. :-)

Well, at least defend your point. You're out there showing BA and saying Posada doesn't decline. That's assanine. He does decline, aside from this year. I'm just saying what Yankee fans saw for years. He seemed to become non-existant late, which can hurt fantasy playoffs. As for roto, Posada's gold.
