I like Pudge better. He is a better catcher overall, but for fantasy, Lopez if he can get close to last year's numbers.

Irod is the choice I believe, though both are elite catchers.

I took Javy Lopez over Pudge due to his offensive stats. I thought Javy Lopez is a better catcher to have in a fantasy league. I do think Irod is a better catcher though!

Fantasy-wise, I like Javy Lopez because of the potential power he has that Pudge doesn't. I see Pudge as a guy who will bat .300 with 20-25 homeruns and 85-90 RBIs while Lopez can put up 30 homeruns, .290 avg and 105-115 RBIs.

Personally I'll be surprised if Lopez ever hits 30 HR's a year. Last year was his brady anderson year, he is just not that kind of power hitter. If I were to draft C's I'd choose Posada > Irod > Piazza > Lopez but I would gladly without any hesitation take any of those 4 on my team.

Lopez's numbers are dropping back down to earth while Pudge's are still solid across the board.

You could try to deal Lopez, maybe someone will think he'll do as well as he did last year. I would rather have I-Rod
