Am I overthinking this?

Postby Pogotheostrich » Tue Mar 05, 2013 6:23 pm

10 team AL only, no keepers,we get to select 1 hitter before the auction starts for list prices.
There are 2 C so I'm a little worried I'm going to end up overpaying or having junk at C. Am I crazy for thinking about taking a catcher over Butler for the same price?

Billy Butler $19
Jesus Montero $19
Salvador Perez $19

Yes. Keeping either of those guys over Butler would be absolutely crazy.

I would keep Butler as well. Don't sweat the C spot too much. You can wait, even with two catchers needed.

Take a look at what the Cafaholics Masters and Pond Scum drafts are looking like. They are both big leagues (Masters is 15, PS is 14) who play with 2 catchers. Checking out their draft pages might give you a better idea of what ind of talent is going to be there later for you. They can be found under the "draft rooms inside" forum.

Have a seat, breath into a paper bag for a while, and then keep Butler like you know you should. ;-D

Butler no contest. If Perez were one dollar then....you'd have a legit argument.

agreed with Butler. I think Ianetta is a good sleeper for C.
