Teagarden because his defense is almost big league ready where as Anderson's defense may force him from behind the plate where his average bat(at best....think a Jason Kendall type best case without the speed) will be exposed. Teagarden could be a .275-.295 hitter with about 15 hr potential, however should be a solid gap hitter(think double for those in points leagues). Teagarden's arm strength should have returned to above average with any luck being this is his 2nd year removed from TJ surgery.

I saw a write up on Anderson last year saying he was comparable to McCann at the same age.

Has his stock sunk so low that his comp is now Jason Kendall ??

I have them both rated about the same. I don't think either will be a star, average servicable fantasy catchers. I like Teagarden a little more right now, because I think he is closer to the majors, but when all is said and done I think they will be about equal in value fantasy wise.

I don't know guys. Teagarden is forcing the Rangers to push Salty off the dish, which speaks to his defensive ability, which was always his calling card prior to his offensive "discovery". Andersen, on the other hand, is more of a long term backup, and speaks to the overall weakness in the Cardinals system(sans Colby Rasmus).

When you factor in park effects, Teagarden is a guy that is being marked down here despite being in a hitter's haven.

Ehh, the Cards' system is right in the middle right now, but it's not because of Anderson. I think he's overrated and I'd rather take a chance on Teagarden. However, with him, plan on having injury issues.
