which catcher to take now that Mauer hit the DL?

Postby athakkar » Tue Jul 20, 2004 8:39 am

now that Joe Mauer, has hit the dl..I'm sure many of us are left to pick a catcher off ww. now sure exactly how long Mauer will be out (heard about 2 weeks, could be longer), but which is the catcher to take who will put the best numbers from here on out?

Matheny
Barrett
Lieberthal
Hall
Lecroy (qualifies at c, but will he play everyday?)
LaRue

Learning towards Barrett, but any advice would be helpful...thanx!

Lieberthal, but pay attention to Mauer if you want him back. He will be back in a couple weeks. It was a medication reaction as to why he has been taken out again.

Barrett. Hes been one of the only consistent hitters on the Cubs and has better numbers than Lieberthal.

The cubs suck. They have no hitters. The worst thing to do is get a Cubs pitcher.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Grabbed Benjie Molina a few days ago when Mauer looked like he was starting to have problems. Looks like he'll be a great fill in. Had my eyes on both Angels Molinas early in the year; they both looked good, but were taking AB's from each other. Now that Benjie seems to be getting a lot more starts, he's become a viable fantasy option. At least as a filler.
Blessed are the cheesemakers.
