Someone asked what the catching platoon was that I referred to yesterday. I’m ashamed to admit it because there’s no way it pans out, but it’s John Baker (FLA) and Dusty Ryan (DET). It’s a sim league and I chose them based on MARCEL projections that are probably way off for at least Ryan because he’s so young. I’m assuming it will be a disaster, but I couldn’t bring myself to draft any of the dreck that was left on the board. And like Yogi (or someone) said, a catcher is very important. Without one, you have too many passed balls.
I don’t even want to think about my second base situation. Mostly because we’re like 20 rounds in, and I still don’t have one. But hey, I have Renteria at short, and I’m sure he’ll range to his left to get whatever is hit over there, right?
