Any insight on sleeper catchers???

Postby bsiegert9 » Sat Mar 01, 2003 11:33 pm

I just landed Piazza in a trade, but still have Kendall as the backup.....quickly I get many offers for Piazza. Since I am need for starters I might have to make a deal.
What do you guys think about Kendall and who are some sleeper catchers that might be in the free agents that would be a good addition?

Thanks

kendal is risky. he has been slumping for the past few years, so at age 29, its now or never to get back to his peak. he had reconstructive surgery on his thumb but that was a while ago, so it might not effect him that much. hes not a power hitter at all, look for: .280 avg, 70 runs, 7-10 HR's, 55 RBI's

I am in need of starting pitching....basically sitting with Byrd, Wolf, and Dan Wright!!
If I unload Piazza and get a stud pitcher, who are some sleeper catchers that might still be on the free agent line, that could put up some numbers?? Kendal is my other catcher

Jason LaRue could be one.he will not do great for u, of cource, but will do OK. look for around .254 avg, 30-35 runs, 10-12 HR's, 40 RBI's.

if you like what Kendall is supposed to do, you might look into Olivo. hes more than likely to start for the white soxs, and runs like crazy...
KEEP PIAZZA!!! deal Kendall and Byrd for someone like Moyer or Glavine, maybe Burhle if you're lucky...

I don't know what kind of risk you are willing to take, or exactly who is still available. But Ben Davis out of seattle, is really starting to have an upside. Originally slated to split time with dan wilson, davis is killing everyone in spring, plus wilson already out for two weeks with strained oblique. could put up some big numbers batting late in the M's lineup.

Matt Lacroy, batting 5th in Minnesota might have catcher eligibility in your league.

I read a report that Kendall was having some problems with his vision last year. He had it corrected in the offseason and good have a good year. He was my catcher last year and I learned he certainly can't hurt you (very low k's).
