Essentially, you have to weigh the following factors:
Increase in avg from avoiding a bad catcher + increase in numbers from additional player added
Loss of production from bad catcher
That's what I was thinking, and I thought for him it wouldn't be a bad idea, but honestly I only play roto (I would never do it in a standard roto league), so I'm not sure how much it would hurt.

Good point. Wow that's nuts!
We've played NL only with the standard Yahoo roster positions for the past two years, so we decided to mix it up a little this year. It's not as fun as we thought it would be though. Bennett, Ianetta, Montero, Saltalamacchia, and Lieberthal are all owned and starting, and a bunch of teams have at least one empty slot there.
