I've gotten a lot of value out of Furcal this season so far, but I think it might be time to move on. Though Furcal has 206 total points (2.6 avg.) this season to Betancourt's 110 (2.7 avg.), Furcal has only had 41 points (1.6 avg.) in the last month to Betancourt's 75 (3.3 avg.). Also, Betancourt qualifies for both SS and 2B, which I see as a sizable plus. Any opinions?
Also, as a side, I have a bit of a conundrum at catcher. I have A.J. Pierzynski and Yadier Molina, but I also just picked up a young and promising Yasmani Grandal. I can only start 1 catcher, so I feel like I have to do something with somebody. I'm trying to wait the situation out to see if it will be obvious who to try and trade, but I was hoping someone might be able to provide assistance.
Stick with Furcal. Betancourt is notorious for getting red hot and then going absolutely cold. Furcal is a better season long option.
You have to do something with all those catchers. Either make a trade or drop Grandal but there is no good reason to have 3 catchers if you only start 1. Odds are Grandal isn't much better than some of the options on the WW.

I don't think that any of your catchers keep pace. Yadi is the safest bet. I would put all three on the block and see if any offers come in.
What do you mean by "I don't think any of your catchers keep pace?" Of the top point-getters at catcher, Molina is 2nd and Pierzynski is 4th. I need to somehow get better pitching, but I don't know what kind of packages will net me one. I managed to pick up Aramis Ramirez off the wire, and I'm thinking I could package him with maybe Molina to get a pitcher? What do you think?
