Carrying two catchers?

I think it depends on your roster size. Last year our league bumped it up to 23. With that size, you have the luxury of carrying 2 catchers.

As a principle, I think it's smart to carry 2, because there are so many games that catchers sit out. The easiets situation is if you have Varitek ... always sits w/ Wakefield, and you plan on inserting catcher #2 into your lineup that day. Same w/ Barrett and Maddux.

It just kills me to have an empty spot in my lineup, with a guarantee of no production.

Unless I get a top 8 catcher I prefer to go with someone who plays everyday with Catcher elgibility. like brandon lidge this year or as you said mcleroy last year. something like that. the bad thing is swapping catchers like i did last year and you put in a brad ausmus to bat and it ends up hurting you more than helping you. so dont have a warm body in there, get a fit for your team.
People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. Rogers Hornsby
