I have no idea of how those who play (and run) fantasy baseball rank the positions and why they rank them as they do. However, as I've observed REAL baseball over the decades, the catcher is one of
the (if not the most
) strategic positions - as is the QB in football. I saee a massive hole both defensively and offensively at catcher position. the Sox need a competitive catcher for a solid run at the playoffs and possibly WS. I say that it will most likely come though the trade route.
Whenever I've observed a World Series winner, I've noticed there's a strong defensive catcher who can hit at least reasonably well. Thinking of Red Sawx, Yankees catchers when those teams won WS championships (Fisk, Posada, etc.). When you look around at last year's WS roster of SF Giants, you see Catcher Buster Posey last year, 300 hitter and Rookie of the Year for 2010.
