I could use a replacement in the below keeper league for Posey.

I picked up Suzuki, but Napoli is on waivers until 5/30 - 10TH priority. There is only one team with two active catchers (V. Martinez/C. Santana). I offered a trade, but he'd not likely to bite since one is his 1B too.

Other C available:

Ramon Hernandez
Posada
Ruiz
Pierzynski
Barajas
Doumit
Salty
Olivo
Montero

12 Team H2H Keeper (5 keepers)
R, HR, RBI, SB, AVE, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

C: Suzuki
1B: Berkman (OF)
2B: Beckham
3B: A. Rodriguez
SS: Tulowitzki
OF: Holliday, Hamilton, B.J. Upton
UTIL: Carlos Quentin
BN: Kubel
DL: Posey

SP: Haren, J. Sanchez
RP: Wilson, Walden
P: S. Santos, Storen, Norris
BN: W. Rodriguez, Peavy, Lohse, Jurrjens

I think you should stick with Suzuki. He's underrated IMO and will provide you decent numbers. He's no Posey but still not a bad substitute.

Some guy just dropped Chris Young in my league, and even with that low batting average I dont see why. He dropped him for a middle reliever, and we dont get any points for holds so I see no sense in this move so it makes me second guess this. I am thinking this might be the time to use my #1 waiver priority, dropping Logan Morrison for him. Is there something wrong with Chris Young? Everything seems like hes putting up the exact same numbers as last yr, and even with a .250 AVG I can always use 90-27-90-20 numbers, but does this justify a #1 waiver priority?

What kind of value could I expect to get for Shin-Soo Choo, say if I wanted a starting pitcher in return?

@TrippySG: I'd drop Roberts for CYoung instead of Morrison.

I am currently in 5th place despite having 2nd most points. Been plagued with injuries and had to make lots of moves. I've got extra pitchers because we can make lineup changes daily and so I use most of the pitchers on the bench depending on their opponent.

I'm feeling pretty good about my team now, but wanted another opinion. How does my team look to you?

Standard Yahoo 10 teams, head to head, can make daily changes
C Victor Martinez (Det)
1B Gaby Sanchez (Fla)
2B Neil Walker (Pit)
3B Chipper Jones (Atl)
SS Hanley Ramirez (Fla)
OF Lance Berkman (StL)
OF Curtis Granderson (NYY)
OF Carlos Quentin (CWS)
Util Josh Hamilton (Tex)
Util Adam Jones (Bal) (OF)
DL Joe Mauer (Min)
DL Justin Morneau (Min)

SP CC Sabathia (NYY)
SP Jered Weaver (LAA)
RP Jordan Walden (LAA)
RP Joel Hanrahan (Pit)
P Roy Oswalt (ChC) (SP)
P Chris Carpenter (StL) (SP)
P Clay Bucholz (Bos) (SP)
P Jamie Garcia (StL) (SP)
BN Bud Norris (Hou) (SP)

Would you recommend picking up Josh Johnson? It's a good time to buy low b/c he'll be out to the All-Star break. I'm just concerned that he will have a lot of trouble coming back.

@ Trippy - Drop Roberts and go grab Young now. No brainer there.

@ Howard - Your team is solid stand pat. Injuries and slow starts (Hanley, Hamilton) is your only downfall.
If you're scoring points but just matching up vs. top score or things of that nature, those are the breaks. Have confidence you'll turn around.


Help with mine?

I'll just summarize my thread here for some help. Catcher question. Does K. Suzuki turn it around or could I improve?

My thread in summary;

I'm currently 1st in a big $ 10 team h2h points fantasy league. Points are typical (1pt for 1b, 2pt for 2b, -1 for K, etc)

Waiver transactions cost $3, which cuts down on add/drop activity leaving some pretty good players on the wire.

I'm currently looking at dropping K. Suzuki. His lack of power is killing me.. Available is Iannetta, Arencibia, and Olivio.
