I have a similar "problem" in my other dynasty league, though my farm catcher won't come up this season. I also have McCann in that league and the farm catcher is Wieters. I'll have to find somebody in need of a catcher at some point before the 2010 season. With Pablo's position eligibility, you should be able to play him and still shop for anyone needing an offensive catcher. I'm probably not going to carry a catcher into next season in LFOD hoping Wieters is in the opening day lineup.
Yeah, his 1B/3B/C eligibility is a plus, especially if he continues to rake. I'm actually going to carry Shoppach as my 3rd catcher going into the offseason-- he has 2 fewer homers (21) than McCann (23) with 150 less ABs. And a .269 average (.300+ over last month) isn't too shabby for the 27yo. My glut of catchers for the offseason in LFOD:
McCann - .299/23/85 in 488 ABs
Pablo - .339/3/17 in 124 ABs
Shoppach - .269/21/55 in 334 ABs
I've never had an excess of catching before. It's weird.
I'll probably be looking to deal...
