I removed my Chad Tracy post after accidentally posting it in the wrong place. So JDogg's post actually DID make sense before that. :-)

Well at catcher in one league, I'm platooning Castro/Redmond, and only start Redmond when Dontrelle is starting for the Marlins. Other than that I think Castro is starting all their games. It's an 18 team league though, so I don't mind. Inge is available, but he won't get much PT, and isn't really this good. He made it to the majors being a good defensive catcher, not a good hitter. So I guess that's my only weakness. SS I have Lugo and Crosby, but I planned on that cuz I'm waiting until Crosby is good enough to start every day for me, then I'll dump Lugo.

Mine is OF. Told myself i wasnt taking an OF in the 1st 5 rounds no matter what because its such a deep position. I'll be danged if everyone else in my league didnt do just the opposite of me. 17OF went before I took my 1st OF rd 6(Wells), 32 Before I took my 2nd OF(Hunter)
Left me with..

VWells- Good, but in an awful funk.
Dye- Snagged him off FA 2nd wk in and is proving to be a steal.
Klesko(dropped Kearns for him),Hunter,Burnitz- I try and play the hot hand with these guys or hitters park or whoever plays the most games. This week Ill be starting Klesko.

1B is killin me to as Giambi sucks. Benched him for Konerko last wk.

So if i ever get some hitting to go along with my excellent pitching I'll be in real good shape.

It looks as though Redmond is getting most of the starts now though. He has caught to Beckett Penny and Oliver as well in the last week.

If that continues he is well worth grabbing on his own.
Castro can't hit the side of a barn at the moment.

Lets see. Catcher is bad for me, since all I have is Pierzynski :-P . SS is weak since Im starting C Guillen while Nomar remains benched.

Ditto on catcher. I have Lieberthal (below Mendoza line). Tried Castro and now Olivo, suck, suck, suck :-[

Sigh.


Posada and Laird?? Does anyone have better catchers then you? (At least while Laird's hot right now)


I guess you're right. I was just getting frustrated because it seems like Posada is taking a lot of games off. Plus, I posted that Sunday when Laird was off as well.

Looking at my league, I probably do have the best catcher combo.

Shortstop has been my problem, Nomar and Furcal looked to be strong for the season, Furcal is back but who knows how long Nomar will be out. I grabbed Womack to cover Nomar, good move week 1 and 2, but he killed me last week by not playing. Still have managed a 2 and 1 record though!

Pitching. My first four pitchers taken were Prior, Smoltz, Petitte and Mantei. To try to recover, I have picked up and started Suppan (shelled), Vogelsong (shelled), and Riley (shelled). I'm last in ERA, WHIP, and SOs.
