How about dropping Theriot? Wieters is supposed to be ridiculously good, especially in a keeper but there are a lot of folks out there who think he'll step right in this season and do some damage. I wouldn't recommend losing Sandoval or Iannetta... you'd have a surplus at catcher, but you can always trade it later for speed or a back-up infielder if you miss Theriot.

Check out the thread on Wieters in the 2009 Predictions forum & also note he's 11-for-25 so far in Spring Training...

Definitely pick Wieters up....for the name recognition, at the very least.

Theriot or Lind can go...your choice.

Cut Theriot. No way cut Iannetta, who i think will have a better year then Wieters. Wieters won't be up till May at the earliest.

I wouldn't waste a bench spot on a second catcher in a one-catcher league. You could put that bench spot to better use playing attractive spot starts. Also, Sandoval outside of the C position is going to have questionable value.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
