Any of the Catchers better that the other?

Postby ron paul for pres » Fri Apr 27, 2012 5:23 pm

Lucroy, Soto, C Ruiz, Ianetta, R Martin, Suzuki and Thole

I really don't need much from this position. Got plenty of power elsewhere. Just don't want someone that will drag down the avg.

Hmm.... Maybe Russell Martin. If you don't need real production you can always stream catchers? And how much power do you have? Maybe you don't need a catcher? Haha, sounds crazy... but I have konerko, votto, teixeira, and Trumbo and Plenty of power at other positions. I traded away my SS J.J. Hardy because he was bringing down my AVG. and I didn't need his power since I have plenty.

empty catcher spot? I suppose that could work, and I could always use another pitcher. Here's what I have now in terms of power:

12 team league, H2H, 5X5, non-keeper

1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Asdrubal Cabrera
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Josh Hamilton
OF - Carlos Beltran
DH - Justin Morneau
BN - Alex Rodriguez
BN - Nolaon Reimold
BN - Austin Jackson
BN - Mike Aviles
BN - Bryce Harper

Make Aviles your starting SS till he cools off, and if he stays hot all season.. Even better! Try grabbing any C and package him with someone on your bench to trade for someone better than Bruce in the OF. You can even include Bruce in the trade and aim high for a top three OF like kemp, CarGo or McCutchen... By the way.. Adam Jones will have a better season( I'm predicting 30 HR 30 SB 90RBI and a .305 AVG.) than McCutchen. Try to grab him while he's under the radar

I've been streaming catchers based on matchups. In one catcher leagues, there are too many catchers that give you similar results.

Ehh. Martin might be OK. Ruiz will give you avg but not much else. He would be OK if you are just looking to keep from doing an Adam Dunn on your Avg.
