Catching for the Cubs he has become a pretty decent fantasy option behind home. So why not move Jason Werth, Robert Fick, Eli Marreo, and Josh Phelps??? All of them have experience at catcher. Aside from maybe Werth and on a good day Phelps, these guys are mediocre to say the most according to fantasy value. But put them behind the plate and you have the same fantays value as Craig Wilson this year. I've heard rumors about LA putting Werth at catcher considering he is the bullpen catcher when not playing in LA. If Piazza can catch so can they. Granted Piazza has gotten a million times better in recent years, but I'm sure they can do it. Somebody push for these guys to get some time behind the plate.

For the record Havock1517, none of those players come anywhere close to the value of Craig Wilson this year, even if they are C eligible. The guys you mentioned dont come anywhere near the .280AVE 18HR 59RBI 64R 32Walks that C.Wilson has produced so far. Even fantasy teams that drafted C.Wilson as a sleeper 2nd catcher have made him a must start, aside from his recent slump, at DH or 1B throughout most of the year.
