Drop Joe Mauer???

Postby DL » Fri Jun 25, 2004 6:07 pm

I currently have Matthew LeCroy and Joe Mauer as my 2 backstops. I see some intriguing catchers in the FA pool though in my league. Would you drop Mauer for any of these guys?

Rod Barajas (5 homers in last 5 games) : .284/12/30/0 in 134 AB's
Brandon Inge (now starting 3B) : .305/7/30/2 in 164 AB's
Eric Munson (now qualifies at C in my league) : .217/8/23/0 in 152 AB's
Mauer : .268/3/8/0 in 56 AB's

Translated over 500 AB's:
Barajas : .284/45/112/0
Inge : .305/21/92/6
Munson : .217/26/76/0
Mauer : .268/27/71/0

I find Munson only intriguing because of his power potential & if he were to get a starting job back, he could be huge at the C position. But, Inge has been a huge surprise to me...I see no track record for what he has done in the majors or minors. Barajas has a decent minor league record, but who saw what he has been doing lately? He is absolutely en fuego! I expect Mauer to hit for average and he has shown some surprising pop...but, could there be a better option out there?
