Should I take A.J. Pierzynski WHIR

Postby birdbrains » Wed Mar 02, 2011 5:56 pm

Almost done with a long draft as I have to more picks...I havent taken a catcher yet and was hoping to take one as my last pick, but with Ianetta taken, I think AJ Pier is my best bet of what is left....
There is also a strong possibility that by the time my turn comes up AJ will be gone...can you pick a catcher or 2 or 3 from that long list that you think I can bank on for the year...

I have listed my team below so you can see what my team consists of in this deep 18 tean , H2H league with 10 keepers

Sporting News says:

Pierzynski: .268 10 HR 55 RBI 48 RUNS

Doumit: .263 14 HR 52 RBI 45 RUNS

Yadier: .271 8 HR 50 RBI 40 RUNS

My heart says Doumit might recover a little bit and be decent. But my head says that Yadier Molina plays for the high-scoring Cardinals, so I would roll the dice on Molina. Especially since he's younger.
