2nd Catcher (start 2)

Postby Paco625 » Thu Mar 24, 2005 2:35 pm

I currently have Buck as my second catcher, thinking about picking up Philips instead. Any thoughts? Does phillips definately have the starting job? I think both will be hitting at the bottom of the lineup. I'm just worried about Buck's AVG, although Philips is not Ichiro either.

I commish 3 2C leagues and Phillips was picked up only in 1...by a Met fan. I would stick with Buck. Phillips was nothing short of AWFUL last season. Why deal with it? Buck has some upside, though who knows. Another guy to look at is Olivo.

Another guy to look at is Inge - he will be playing everyday in DET, and he won't hurt you in any category, which is nice for 2 Cs league

I prefer Buck over Phillips. Phillips has proved he can suck, Buck at least has some untapped potential. Picking up 15-20 bombs should be decent from a #2 C.
I haven't heard Phillips is 100% to start, but the Dodgers have given every indication he should be though.
