        Just confirming: standard active roster and 27 man reserve? Standard 5x5 categories?
        "What we need in the United Stated is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness but is love, and wisdom and compassion toward one another and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black." -- Robert F. Kennedy, April 4, 1968, from a flatbed truck in Indianapolis, as he informed the crowd of the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.

              Larry, you've got 1 C and 2 UT listed in your previous message...should it be 2 C and 1 UT?

                Al I changed that in the last league. If you guys want 2 catchers and 1 UT im fine with that one.

                With the draft and hold 2 catchers kinda stinks. I found this one out first hand. A catcher on your team gets hurt and your stuck having a backup catcher in you lineup that gets 6 AB's a week or something

                  I'm a purist, so I prefer two catchers but will go along with everyone else. Yes, you can get burned by a weak hitting catcher (or two) but that's part of the challenge.

                    Im fine either way

                    When we get 15. You guys can decide.

                    I get the being burned part. Its just a lot worse in a draft and hold. I think it was Pb last yr. He took Sal Perez and lost him for the year and had backups for the rest of the year basically. That kinda changed my mindset on it in this format

                    But like I said. After we get 15. We can do a poll for 1 or 2 catchers. Im fine with any decision

                      Last year, with the HR explosion there were 32 catchers that had 10 or more home runs...catching is not as weak a hitting position as it once was.

                        I"m OK either way re: 1 or 2 Cs.

                            I'm not a purist - I don't find getting a second catcher or a backup any fun at all. Taking the top 15 catchers plus one or two backups each pretty much exhausts the pool of usable offensive players at the position.

                              I suspect that Hank Aaron (at age 85) may have been able to hit 10 HRs last year.

                                Well sure, but stick him behind the plate and I suspect base stealers would run on him.
