The last pick I make will be a C unless I see someone fall a lot. I'm basically looking at Soto, Towles, Napoli, Suzuki, Buck, Bard and Doumit. One of these guys should put up decent enough numbers while not completely destroying my AVG.

Salty and Soto are great sleepers, and if you don't draft one early, then you'll probably still get at least one of them. How confident are you that both will do well when starting? I have more confidence in Soto this year personally, and am not sure if Salty's ready to start on a fantasy roster...but I would wait and try to get both of them... if not get one of the guys Yoda suggested as well as one of your guys.

In the mocks/drafts that I've been involved in up to this point, Salty seems to be the 6th or 7th catcher off the board, and he's going too early for my tastes. Just be forewarned if you're trying to wait until late to snag him.

wheres all this love for ruiz coming from? he doesnt have much potential to hit for a high avg or many hr...i guess he will get some rbi and some runs, but i didnt think he'd be considered a sleeper.

Ruiz hit 6 HR and had 6 SB last year with 42 R, and 54 RBI.

Soto is going to get you what, maybe like 14 HR, 1 SB and 50 R/50 RBI assuming he doesn't just tank.

Towles will get you like 8 HR, 7 SB with 50 R, 50 RBI.

You can get Ruiz like 6 rounds later, he has less downside and probably realistically has the same upside since this is his 2nd full year and you expect improvement.

I think I would pass on Salty or Soto and grab Bengie Molina later. He looks to be slotted at clean-up this season and puts up decent numbers.
Like Salty's upside more but he is going earlier than I feel comfortable with.

im confused? arent there about 30 catchers who can get you 6 hr with 42 r and 54 rbi and hit under .270?
