The only real weakness on my 16 teamer is C. I waited, and waited, and got Lucroy.
The thing is, he doesn't play when Wolf pitches, and Kottaras has started other games as well.
It's a total points league, so I might as well use up all 162 games available at the C spot.
So, should I drop a starter, who I'm kind of streaming for G.Kottaras, and therefore own "Milwaukee Catcher" and get everyday play? Or get another catcher who might start more games?
My options are
I don't like owning 2 catchers, but if I were go own both Lucroy and Kottaras and start them accordingly I'd have the #1 catcher in the league basically.
Unless I'm thinking about it wrong.
Lucroy - 35 points
Kottaras - 36 points
71 Total from the C spot, whereas a guy like Napoli/Wieters/Mauer/Molina all have in the 70-75 point range.
Is that the way to go? Own all Mil catchers, or just live with Lucroy and use the bench spot another way?
I've trade trading for lesser Catchers like Saltalamacchia and people are treating their backup catchers like gold; can't pry them away.
