offense looks bad. i think you'll be short on homers and runs. and its compounded by using taveras - who you need or youre short on steals.
having 2 catchers is one of these things like the phillies moving brett myers to the bullpen. even if it works, it's still a bad idea.
kendrick is requires a backup at this point. you have a catcher in utility and your're falling behind in games played at 2B and SS. why?
can you trade a pitcher for y.escobar? he is awesome and he'll back you up at 2B and SS.
Short on homers? I've got Power all over, just waiting for them to break out: Molina, Butler, Guillen, Wright, Lee, and Hart should supply more than enough. Add Towles in there and I'm fine. I can afford one spot on speed.
I don't like having two catchers either, I plan to sell high on Molina down the road when I see that Towles is not hurt (hand) and plays every day (he sits with Oswalt pitching)[see later comment].
I have some excess garbage because of injury situations (Kendrick,Guillen, Soriano and Granderson, we only get 1 DL spot), which I hope to use to get better versatility.
Escobar is ranked SUPER high right now (Ranked 36th), I'm not going to sacrifice to get that. I'm thinking that I might flip Molina for Aaron Hill if the owner goes for it. Unfortunately I might have to wait for Cano to come back, as Hill is his only 2b.
