    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.
    Keeper league: 12 team mixed keeper 5X5 (R,HR,RBI,SB,OBP X QS,SV+HLD,ERA, WHIP, K/BB) - turn-based auction draft $260 budget
    H2H league: 12 team mixed redraft 5X5 (R,HR,RBI,SB,OBP X W,SV+H, ERA, WHIP, K/9) - weekly category totals, not points

    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.

    Alas, that was probably the least of that team's problems. Despite that disaster among disasters, I still tend to like two catchers, but I'm happy either way. The world's a dangerous place. You draft a good catcher; he gets hurt. You draft an ace pitcher; he gets hurt. You draft mid-level pitchers; they all stink. You draft a bunch of really good batters; they all stink, then get hurt. You draft some closers; they all lose their job. And those were the *highlights* for that team.

    He still might have thrown out more than Wilson Ramos.

    OK, I'm convinced. I'll vote for 1 catcher slot and 2 UT.

    I’m over 55 and not sure I remember this - but could it be the Marx brothers.

    One other question: are activations/reservations weekly, biweekly or daily?

    No worries; I thought that was the case, but better safe than sorry.
