I forgot about Piazza....basically because I'm not targeting him :-P , but he should be in my top catchers list...probably around Mauer. I'll edit my list. Thanks ;-D

Rod Barajas or Gerald Laird whoever in Texas gets the start, both of them could have potential especially Laird

Yadier Molina of the Cardinals looks to be getting a full-time job handed to him. Don't know a whole lot about him, but he's only 22 and put up decent numbers in the minors. In that lineup he could surprise some people.

Olivio up here is Seattle, should have a nice season for someone you should be able to pick up real late in the draft, from what I read and hear around here, He should be getting the majority of the AB's in front of Wilson.

what kind of numbers do you see him and other sleepers putting up this year???

Marrero shouldn't qualify at C in most leagues and KC has Buck to start and Alberto Castillo to backup. Eli will be a corner OF and will only be looked to as a C in an emergency situation.

Look at Buck as a sleeper. He was thrown into the fire last year and after a rocky start, put up some good offensive numbers in Sept.

He is solid behind the plate and handles pitchers well, so he will get plenty of chances to continue his growth with the bat. He is a name that will go undrafted in nearly all mixed leagues and could be a top 15 C by years end.

Good call. Buck is definitely someone to target in the end rounds of a draft. He'll be servicable, and might allow you to trade your #1 catcher for some firepower elsewhere.
