WARNING: to all Salty, Salt Man, Saltalamacchia lovers - the word is out.
Yahoo! Fantasy Expert Andy Behrens made Saltalamacchia the headline of his most recent article on fantasy sports praising the catcher's hitting ability. Here's a link to the article: http://fantasysports.yahoo.com/analysis ... antasy/mlb
The article ends with:
"The fact that Saltalamacchia is a first baseman who qualifies at catcher is a big plus, fantasy-wise. He should really be owned in most mixed leagues. Currently, there are a bunch of more heavily-owned catchers with batting averages in the .235-to-.265 range who are on pace to hit no more than 18 HR. I'd prefer Saltalamacchia to most of them. Those are really sub-league average numbers in a public league."
So if you were thinking about adding him but weren't sure before (like me), you have no choice now. Someone else will grab him out of blind sheepitude to the experts and you will not be able to show your love for Salty... go now.
