Don't disagree with any of the 4 choices. Posada is an easy down, given where he's likely to be drafted (I'll have to look that up), and the injury risk he carries with him at age 37.

Sandoval scares me, because I drafted J.R. Towles last season instead of Geovany Soto, and he was abysmal. We could see the same disparity between Sandoval and Wieters this year that we did last season when Towles and Soto were the big Cafe sleepers, and I'd hate to be on the wrong side of it two years running, and Wieters I have more confidence in than Sandoval (though, and again I'll have to look this up, I imagine Sandoval is going considerably later in drafts).

Good stuff. ;-D

Jarrod Saltalamachia and JR Towles called. They said be cautious about drafting rookie catchers. They all aren't like Soto.

And none of them are like Wieters.

I was actually referring to Sandoval who isn't technically a rookie. Weiters is very special.

My b...
I'll take that call from Salty, but since Sandoval won't have to catch much, I think it will help him. It certainly can't hurt in his game preparation.

The 2 up 2 down series is one of my favorites here. Perhaps it could become a weekly series once the season starts as opposed to just a preseason affair ;-D
