M-A-U-E-R

Why do you have Hundley and McCann? Do you start 2 catchers?

McCann over the most overrated fantasy player.

I would take Mauer if he was healthy but I don't like this mystery illness.

A healthy Mauer gives you a huge competitive advantage in Runs/RBI from the C spot. However right now I'd be leery right now, as I agree that whatever he's got going on - virus, leg weakness, back soreness, knee surgery recovery... it's like the old joke goes:

What do you get when you cross a good catcher with a balky lower back? I don't know, but keep it the hell away from my fantasy team.

Mauers illness is unrelated to his leg weakness. For all we know he could be dealing with severe dehydration, which can be handled with rest and fluids. I'm not too scared about Mauer right now, I have him on my team on the DL (picked up Hundley).

I would keep him unless you get a better offer.

I'd stick with McCann. Mauer is too prone to missed time. McCann seems to be finding his stroke again after last year's underwhelming performance and eye issues.

Could you help here? Eithier+ for Zimmerman+
