what is your opinion of drafting 2 catchers?

1) since most catchers miss a nice amount of time for rest, to make sure you hit the max # of games played for that position, thus giving you the max amount of their counting stats.

2? If you can grab, say 2 of the top 8 or 9 Cs in a 12 teamer. Thus thinning out the position and either giving you a bargaining chip or shafting a team by making them have to start a lower tier C.

i dont really think its worth using a pick or bench spot on a 2nd catcher in a 12 teamer. if you got into deeper leagues or 2 catcher leagues it changes a lot, but the top 12 catchers are pretty decent and its not really necessary to supplement them.
