Joe Mauer - when will you pick him up?

Postby cwebb » Fri Apr 04, 2003 3:44 pm

For all players in keeper leagues out there: Do you plan to pick up Joe Mauer this season already?

Will you wait for the year he comes to the majors and then try to grab him? Or will you bid high money in next year's draft, or did you already draft him?

Don't tell Arlo but I've been toying with the idea of picking him up by midseason if I have an open roster spot just to annoy him :-b

Seriously, what do you think about this guy? Will he play catcher, will he have to to be a great asset on your fantasy team?

I think he's a great prospect with a very bright future. In leagues with minor league rosters, he'd be one of the top ten or so players I'd want to have right now (and one of the top two catchers). Otherwise, I think it's still far too early to consider using a roster spot on him unless either your bench is huge or you're rebuilding...

And no, I won't tell Arlo... :-D (grumble grumble trying to get back at me for grabbing Matsui a long time ago grumble...)

I grabbed Mauer about a year ago maybe even earlier. Hes bb top prospect at this point. He can do it all. His power will come as he ages.
