I'm doing a 12-team H2H points league with some friends; unfortunately, I had to auto-draft. The computer drafted Longoria, Beltre AND Lawrie onto my roster. At Catcher I have McCann, who is on the DL and who I don't like. Thinking of offering Lawrie for Carlos Santana. Good idea, bad idea or meh idea? My dumb lineup is:

C - McCann (DL)
1B - Ike Davis
2B - Utley
3B - Longoria
SS - Prado
OF - Trout
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Nelson Cruz
Util - Beltre
Util - Lawrie
Bench - several terrible players I will drop

Was also offered Lucroy for Fister -- for SP I have Lee, Greinke, Bailey, Fister, Anibal, Estrada, Cobb - surprisingly not a terrible job by the computer there. Is that any better/worse?

you should have catchers in a 1-catcher league, available on the wire...what catchers are on the wire?...also, do you have a DL spot?

I wouldn`t sweat not having a catcher...in reality there is nothing wrong with choosing a catcher late...sure you got stuck with an injured guy...but you have 3 of the top 3basemen in probably one of the shallowest positions.

I think getting Carlos Santana for Lawrie would be a good deal for you...I doubt the Carlos owner would do that...but worth a try...there are a few catchers I`d probably give Lawrie up for...Mauer...even Perez...but let`s see what you have on the wire for catchers first.

Thanks for your thoughts! That makes sense. Offered Lawrie for Santana, but no response yet, and my assumption is "no deal" on that one.

On the wire:
Salty
AJ Ellis
Martin
Doumit

Like the walks for Ellis (at least, going by last year) although Salty is tempting as well.

couldn't agree more with Blue, just add a C from the WW and ride him til he cools off.

I agree with the guys above. Catchers are easy to pick up from the waivers. I like Doumit from those options you gave.

I'd grab Salty and not worry about a trade right now. He's looked improved at the plate and his power has already been demonstrated readily.
