Mauer+ for Posey+ WHIR

Postby DigitalFool » Fri Apr 15, 2011 4:04 pm

Keeper league - He wants my Posey/Ichiro for his Mauer/Werth. He doesn't want to deal with Mauer and his DL stint (how ever long that is). Thoughts?

I don't have a backup catcher for the mean time, so I'd have to go hunting on the WW.

There's a real chance that Posey will be worth more than Mauer, if he keeps having DL stints-- there's a possibility that Mauer has some sort of deeper issue -- rumors of Guillain-Barre syndrome or something like that -- it might do you a lot of good to wait a day or two and see if anything more comes out about the nature of Mauer's issue. 'B/L leg weakness' is very strange.

Who are the C on the WW that you'd have to use in the meantime?

Any thoughts on mine? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=427468

I'll take Posey and Ichiro over Mauer and Werth 10 times out of 10. Stay put.

It's a 10 team league and Russell Martin would be the best WW pickup.

Although, I think the consensus is stand pat which I'm fine with since I kept Posey from last season.

Thanks all!

This is a Keeper Leauge. Posey is younger and has the upside to be the #1 catcher. Mauer has what seems like a chronic back problem causing him leg weakness in a position where you squat all day.

I'd honestly be selling Mauer if I had him in a keeper. I'm worried about his long-term ability to play catcher.
