he is still eligible at C this year, but he has never showed me a whole lot to consider him as my mainstay C

I picked him up late in the '03 season and he had a nice enough finish that I threw him on my '04 rankings for catchers right behind CWilson. Then injuries stepped in last year.

I'd say he's a great candidate to bounce back (only as C, of course), but there are other factors working against him: the 4-headed OF of Hunter, JJones, Stewart and Ford, which will probably produce the DH most days. Morneau will be at first and Mauer behind the plate, barring a relapse. I'm not seeing a home for LeCroy.

Inge remains the most viable 'fake' catcher.

Good Question.

Brandon Inge

Matthew LeCroy

One of Jason Phillips and Mike Piazza

And that is about it.

I had Wilson catch for me last year. Now I will try and find someone else.
