Catcher help please. WHIR**

Postby StealingHome » Sat Jun 25, 2011 4:11 pm

11-team Roto league, 6x6 with OPS

I'm doing well in the offensive categories. But after losing Posey, I have had JP Arencibia. He has been struggling some and resting more. Other WW options include Olivo, Lucroy, Iannetta, and Ruiz. Are either of these a better option than Arencibia for the rest of the season?

Thanks for your help!

Anyone?

After the elite catchers, they tend to bunch together. Of the above choices, do I replace Arencibia for the hot Olivo or take a chance with Lucroy?

I'd still hold on JP. Olivo has been hot but his numbers are still about where JP is at after he has gone cold. When those flip and JP gets hot while Olivo goes 0-4 and 1-4, you'll wish you hadn't made the swap. Lucroy is enticing but his power is not at JPs level and he isn't bringing much else to the table. Stick with JP.

Torrealba is another lesser owned C that is really hot right now. He might make a better add for the present than any of those listed. He's also on the Giants want list once Napoli returns

With OPS being in play, I would think Iannetta is the play here. He derives his value from BBs and HRs. His OPS is well over .800 last I looked earlier this week.
