Backup catchers AL only

Postby Surfs up » Sat Dec 25, 2004 11:36 am

Merry Christmas everybody.
In your mind what backup catcher ( AL only ) will get the most playing time ? And what are your projections ? AB's and standard 5x5 numbers. I have Rod Barajas as my first catcher at $1.00 and I want to fill the second catchers spot with somebody that will play alot and be cheap. Posada, Lopez, Irod and Varitek are taken the rest of the starters will go for $3.00 or more. Looking to save money for regulars and get as much as I can for my money.

Molina's brother, Jose Molina ?, I recalled had alot of playing time last year. I would not be surprised if " the backup catcher from Boston ????" too much egg nog I can't remember anything, could get more time. I recall his #" being above average for a back up. :*) :*)

What about Inge?

J Buck is a good option, but he won't be a backup now that benito is out of KC.

i'm actually looking for the same guy i was looking for last year. matt lecroy in MIN. he was injured most of 2004 and end up being a disappointment for most people. MIN has an overrated C in mauer and he also wasn't healthy. lecroy will prolly play DH and 1B, but he has C eligibility for 2005.

Mathew Lecroy is a great example. I forgot about him.He did have a dissapointing season and may be forgotten by some of my league members. He is owned by somebody at 6.00 which may be a stretch right now but if I can get him without giving up much might be worth hanging onto until ST. Thanks for the reminder. He does qualify at fist and catcher. 23 and 26 games at each. Our league reqiures 20. Any others ?

why mauer is overrated? cuz there's too much hype about him. he was named baseball america #1 prospect and fantasy owners look at that and figure to take mauer early. looking at his numbers in the minors he has not hit more than 5 HRs in a year. last year he had 6HRs in the big leagues, but he couldn't stay healthy. he's overrated cuz he hasn't proved anything yet, but fantasy owners treat him like he's a superstar. ;-D

My back up catcher in the AL last season was Adam Melhuse with the As...although he only got a little over 200 at bats he did hit 11 home runs which isn't bad for a $1 catcher.
