Ever tried not drafting a catcher?

in the last round take brandon inge.

he's going to play everyday at 3B and qualifies at catcher

he'll go .290, 86 rbi, 20HR, 70 runs and 12 SBs.

pretty good for a catcher - in the last round.

How would you have been out of line? I doubt Inge isnt still on the board, even given his position flexibility.

Of the catchers that remain I would go with Barrett, Lieberthal, then Pierzynski in order of who I like most. If any of those 3 get selected then I would pick from who is left until the next pick.

If no one gets a backup, then wait until the last round to select a C.

i won my 5x5 h2h 1st year keeper league w/out one last year.
i had mauer go down and said skrew it.
i focused on other hard to fill positions. in h2h if you have to take a crappy C, guys that hit 240,250,260 just is more damage than good. i just didnt fill the spot and filled it in my bench somewhere with a surprise stud at another position...

Last year I picked up V Martinez in the last round and Estrada off waivers. I was looking for a .300 average that wouldnt hurt me in H2H.

Lieberthal by far has the most upside on that list...and if its the last 5 rounds of your draft in a 12 team league he should definitely be taken immediately.

He put up good #'s on the road last year and struggled in Citizen Bank(crazy i know)....no way that repeats again this season, citizen bank is a homerun/run scoring haven...i expect lieberthal to top his 03 season #'s.

I'm surprised nobody is even considering Closser. His numbers will be good in Coors.

Last year, in my league draft, there was a run on catchers around round 7 or 8, which I thought was too early once you get past the top 3 or 4. I was going to grab one in the latter rounds when unexplainably to me, some teams took a second catcher, leaving me with practically no choice.

I wound up grabbing Craig Wilson in the last round simply to have a catcher on my roster. Before the season started, I traded Berkman for Posada (the oother owner also had Javy Lopez). When Posada got hurt, I picked up V-Mart on waivers and when he got hot and looked like the real deal, I wound up putting Posada in a package for A-Rod.

So, sometimes your best plans get blown up, but you get lucky.

I was wondering this too. Closser is sopposed to hit .300+ with 15-20 homeruns due to Coors. It is a keeper league too. Should I take him?

Well, was reading through from my original post and just about to tell you to go with Barrett.

Then, I see your comment that it is a Keeper league.
Completely changes the thought process.

I would take Closser.
And, I would do it with your next pick before somebody decides to pick him up and stash him since it is a keeper leauge.

Wierd things will happen out toward the end as managers start looking for value for the out years.
