What are everyone's catcher rankings for this year? What do you think will be the order (in overall numbers) of the players at the end of the year? Thanks for the help! ;-D

You forgot Ramon Hernandez, whom I would place in the low B group.

Kendall doesnt belong in the B group, he really only helps out in avg and runs, and lately his average has been suffering. I also thing B Inge will be much better. Hes batting leadoff (will score runs), and hes a 3rd baseman who qualifies at catcher. I think he should be a B or C catcher by the end of the year

Yup, Inge ahead of most of C and some of B. Barrett is a joke.

Like I said, those rankings were pre-season. Hence, the reason why Inge was so low and Kendall was so high. I'm still high on Kendall, and I'm not 100% sold on Inge yet. But I'll make the changes.

I'd put Mauer in the A group and Inge in the B group.
