Yahoo H2H, 12 teams, standard league.
Picked up Martin as security for McCann and am now sitting with the top two Catchers. Looking to capitalize on Martin's value and move him for some solid SP depth. However, having a hard time figuring out who I should target and what the top Catcher is actually worth.
There are four teams in our league that have catcher problems, each of which is listed below with their catching situation and available SPs. The pitchers in purple are the guys I'm looking at now.
C - R. Hernandez (Posada on bench)
SP - Lincecum, Norris, Myers, Hellickson, Drabek, Lilly, Garcia, J. Johnson (DL)
C - Suzuki
SP - Carpenter, Hanson, Lewis, Scherzer, Pineiro, Lohse
C - Buck (Mauer on DL)
SP - Price, Baker, Jimenez, Zambrano, Gallardo, Richard, Floyd, Arroyo, Nolasco
C - Soto, Iannetta
SP - Sanchez, Latos, Gonzalez, Chacin, Matusz, McClellan (DL)
As you can see I'm looking to try and get someone fairly elite/proven. However, I could trade for someone like a Josh Johnson of Jimenez and take a gamble for high value... The questions are which of these guys should I target and who can I get without overpaying, ideally by capitalizing on his need for a decent Catcher? My roster is below:
C - McCann
1B - Pujols
2B - Utley
3B - N. Walker
SS - Rollins
OF - A. Gordon, Sizemore, Hart
Util - L. Morrison
Bench - Martin, Zobrist, Gardner, JJ Hardy (sub for Rollins will drop to bring back Garza 6/6)
SP - Kershaw, Buchholz, Greinke
P - Cueto, Morrow, Bumgarner
RP - Bailey, Papelbon, Soria
DL - Garza
