Should I drop Darwin Barney for a Catcher? WHIR always

Postby ATLbraves » Mon Jun 13, 2011 2:35 pm

Mike Napoli just went on the DL for me, and I am trying to find a replacement. I have Dan Uggla and he is finally starting to heat up, so I'm thinking I might not need the services of Darwin Barney anymore. Do y'all think I should drop Darwin for a catcher until Napoli comes back? Or should I go without a catcher for a little while just to make sure Uggla really is turning things around.

I also could wait till Thursday because that is apparently when Holliday comes off the DL, and I could just drop Morse and pick up a catcher. But Morse has been playing amazing lately so I'm not sure if I should do that.


My roster is:
12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season for 3 years

SS- Jose Reyes
OF- Chris Young

SP- CC Sabathia

List the top 5 FA catchers in o-rank and the top 5 FA in actual rank. I would go for another catcher, but what are your options?

My topic is here, thanks for the help.

I agree that Uggla is just starting to heat up, and I think he'll start hitting better consistently, so I'd drop Barney and pick up the catcher you like best.

Help on mine?

I'd say sit tight til Holliday comes back unless there is a sever penalty for having an empty roster spot. If it turns out he's going to be significantly longer then you can drop someone (probably lose the streaming spot for a couple days).

Do you feel like I should do this just in case Uggla doesnt keep hitting?

I would drop Barney actually for Soto and take a chance. Uggla is too good not to turn it around and he seems to be starting to heat up. You have two good options but I think I would take a chance and drop Barney who is just basically a singles guy anyway.

thanks for your help with mine

Posada has actually been starting to hit recently, should I give him a shot over Soto for right now since Soto is still cold.
