11. Lieberthal
12. Hernandez
13. Inge

1. Pudge
2. Posada
3. V-Mart (may still be another year before he really starts to shine)
4. Javy
5. Varitek (slightly depends on where he ends up)
6. Kendall
7. Piazza (just can't rank him out of top-8)
8. Mauer (injury poss./still very young)
9. LoDuca (but of course trade him away after the ASB)
10. Barrett
11. Hernendez (a hitters park would help him move up)
12. Lieberthal (expect a bounce back year)
13. Olivo (a catcher with 15-20 sb potential)
14. LeCroy (if he still qualifies)
15. Hall
16. Matheny (my fave, just because of his defense)
17. Laird (if he plays regularly)
18. Johnson (maybe one last hurrah.....maybe..?)
19. LaRue (he's decent)
20. Buck (just for the heck of taking a chance)

Inge is interesting but I don't know how much he will play. Same with LeCroy. Does anyone know of any players eligible at C that are going to be playing another position? Besides Piazza.

More than likely Inge will get a solid number of plate appearances - unless Detroit makes a move for a CF, Inge will rotate from C to 3B to OF. Non fantasy wise - how much is a guy like this worth to a team? I say pay whatever you have to to keep him, a good utility man is damn near priceless.
