Drop Mauer for Jason Castro?

Postby zman3599 » Tue Aug 27, 2013 6:57 pm

Hey guys, this is the last week of the regular season, and my first playoff game begins this upcoming Monday!
I love Joe Mauer, but I am under the impression the Twins are gonna take their sweet time with the guy, and let him rest, and rest, and rest.
Right now Jason Castro is on a tear, and believe it or not he is unowned. I wish I could wait and see what might happen with Mauer, but I'm afraid that if I do, somebody is gonna swoop on Castro and there are literally no other decent catchers on the waiver.

Do you guys think Minnesota Joe is going to return anytime soon, or should I make the bold decision of dropping him?

If you are in a tight race, I might make the move for Castro by dropping someone else NOT Mauer.

Keeper league? I'm in a similar situation. I'm scared that the Twins will bring him back slowly and possibly give him a lot of time off between starts. Do you have any room on your DL? Is there anyone else that you can drop while you find out what the Twins plan on doing with him? I think that if Castro is health (got pulled yesterday) and there is no word soon, you have to pick up Castro.

Help with mine?
