Most Rockies fans have been clammoring for Iannetta to get the majority of the starts behind the plate for a while now. When it appeared Torrealba was heading to New York, a lot of fans weren't really disapointed because it would have meant Iannetta would have the #1 job again.

I'm glad Hurdle is finally giving Iannetta a string of starts together instead of one or two starts per week. He's been great the last five games and I don't see how he can be taken out of the lineup while he continues to hit this way (that being said, don't panic is Yorvit gets the call behind the dish tomorrow night, since Iannetta has started five straight games). I hope he continues to hit well and becomes the #1 catcher officially. ;-D

I went ahead and grabbed him a few days back in a league where I drafted Johjima. :-P
Usually don't clutter my roster with two catchers, but it's nice to see one of them hitting the ball. If Ianetta keeps it up, I'll have some options with the logjam.

I think I'm about to drop Pudge and grab Ianetta because I just read he will be splitting time with Inge now due to being terrible.

Dioner Navarro is also looking pretty good...

I dropped Towles for Ianetta in my league where we start 2 catchers for a total of 162 games. Even if he splits some time, he will be perfect with Mauer as my "every day" catcher.

"Manager Clint Hurdle said that Iannetta is still Yorvit Torrealba's backup, according to the Denver Post."

Can't say I understand this move. If Torrealba keeps struggling and Iannetta keeps raking I can't see this situation lasting for long.

I agree. I almost think that it's Hurdle's way of not rocking the boat just yet. I would be very surprised if Iannetta's workload didn't increase...

Hurdle also put in Herrera to pinch run down by 1 in the bottom of the 9th with 0 outs instead of Podsednik even with a rookie catcher behind home plate
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
