How does Mauer look?
I think a lot of these questions will answer themselves within the next month or so.

But with the Twins giving Mientkiewicz a raise and multi year contract it means either when Morneau (1B) comes up from AAA sometime this season, he'll really cut into LeCroy's at bats as both will split DH duties (Morneau being a lefty and LeCroy a righty), or that Morneau still can't handle breaking stuff and may not reach the majors this season. So, there is a decent chance that down the second half of the season his fantasy production will take a hit based on playing time. Maybe just an ever-so-slight downgrade on your rankings is called for.
Then again, if Morneau plays as people in the Twins organization hope he will, LeCroy could be the odd man out all together. All speculative, but worth considering.

Lecroy is batting cleanup for the Twins this season, so he will be the full time DH, when he is not Catching. 500-pluss at bats for him this season=20 or mor HR's, 90RBI's. Not bad for a late round catcher pick.
