A Call for Two Catchers

July 26, 2014

Now’s as good a time as any to put this out there: a one-catcher format remains one of this league’s greatest flaws.

I lost Matt Wieters to injury ages ago after he gave me 104 AB. I still don’t have another catcher with 100. I’m in first place by a mile.

Mendoza thinks so little of the catcher position, he didn’t draft one. Last year’s double-winner, who must know a thing or two about strategy, picked up an extra lottery ticket elsewhere and figured he’d just cut whoever didn’t pan out and pick up the 14th-ish best catcher on Opening Day. Russell Martin (Let’s Go Bucs!) has given him 136 AB.

Unless we go to two catchers, we run the risk of relegating them to baseball’s equivalent of the fantasy football kicker.

    I completely agree even though I have three at the moment.
