I agree with the other bucco fan. I've been reading the same articles he's linked to, and they all have been indicating that Paulino's defense and overall effort were issues last year. The big advantage Paulino had was that he called a good game behind the plate. The new manager doesn't seem to value that as much, and is willing to call the game from the dugout while Doumit catches. I would expect Doumit to see a significant number of at bats this year.

What about Doumit getting ABs elsewhere? Will he be playing OF and getting a decent amount of ABs between OF and C?

With Salty going down to the minors and our league starting 2 at every position I'm stuck choosing between Laird, D. Ross, Zaun, and Paulino/Doumit.

Can't decide who to grab

Doumit won't be playing the OF. The Pirates are only going to carry two regular catchers, so it's very unlikely that they would use Doumit in the OF if he wasn't catching.

I don't know what his injury was last year. Is it something that could get reinjured from playing catcher on a daily basis? Thats the only thing that scares me about him being the regular catcher...
