1. Paul Bako Mil (The AP reports he may have the starting job with his hot hitting and Casenovia's injured elbow)

2. B. Schneiderman (splitting time with M. Barrett)

3. Jason Larue (splitting time with C. Miller)


I know all of these stink but i need one. I am highly leaning towards Bako but he hasn't shown in the past he can hit consistently.

21 team NL only? 8-o Wow. I'm impressed. That sounds like something pretty unique. Don't think I've ever played in a league that deep... (or did you mean 12?)

Anyway, no matter how deep your league is, I fully agree with you that Bako is the call here. Regardless of whether or not he's the best player, if he has a chance to play every day (or close to it), you have to take a chance on him. I don't think he'll hit over .300 over the season, but he's looked good so far and might be a pleasant surprise.

Wow... 21 teams! I was just thinking about how I don't like the idea of 8-team mixed leagues, because everyone has 22 studs on their roster. All 3 of my leagues are 10-team, NL-only, which seems to work pretty well. I wouldn't mind a 14-team NL-only or a 20-team mixed, though.

Anyway, Bako seems like he might be the best bet. Brian Schnieder might not be so bad either (recently Barrett's been getting some time at 1B, with Schnieder playing behind the plate). Other choices might include Vance Wilson (Piazza's backup, but, hey, he's done pretty well so far) and Robert Machado (he's been the best hitting Cubs catcher so far, and the Cubs are desperate for offense).

If it's a rotisserie league, consider starting a minor league or injured catcher, but check on your league's at-bats rules first. While other people get hurt by catchers batting .215 with 500 AB's, you'll laugh with your catcher batting .000 in 0 AB's.
