Actually, I meant LoDuca or Casey. LoDuca can play 1B (and Marrero should be eligible there within a week as well), so trading Casey would solve the catching problem as well. I wouldn't mind trading Hundley except a) I expect him to have a better year than the projections. He ended last year on a big upswing, and he has been healthy and productive so far. and b) I probably couldn't get a Russ Ortiz/Wade Miller sort for Hundley, which is about what I'm aiming for with LoDuca or Casey (with one of my lesser pitchers as a throw-in).
It's a 10-team league with only one starting catcher, so I don't think there's really much demand for Hundley, but LoDuca is probably the #3 catcher right now, so he should fetch at least something in a trade.
Anyway, thanks for the words of encouragement. I have high hopes for this team.
Oh, and good point about 3B. I'm not sure who's still available though. Maybe Placido Polanco?
