What about this Chris Shelton I've been reading about?
We claimed Shelton as a rule 5 a yr or two ago. He will see plenty of bench time in the bigs, but wont get much action behind Irod and Inge. He projects to be a solid hitter and has excelled at every level so far. My guess is that he is still a good yr away from making a fantasy impact.
Speaking of Inge - Im not sure of how much he can be considered a sleeper, but definitely someone for you to keep in mind when looking for Cs.
Marrero did not catch last year, and KC does not intend to use him at catcher.
Miguel Olivo would be a nice sleeper if he can get at bats from Wilson (and he should). I like Bengie Molina, but he never gets enough ABs. Pierzynski should be OK depending on where he ends up. Whoever starts in Colorado (CJ, Greene, Closser). I think Schneider can have a higher AVG than he showed last year.
To me, the top 13 catchers are usable (Pudge, Javy, VMart, Posada, Varitek, Kendall, LoDuca, Piazza, Hernandez, Mauer, Barrett, Estrada, Lieberthal) and then there is a sharp dropoff.
