2020 Catcher-First Base Preview

Catcher

Draft Strategy

We go over our draft strategy for attacking the catcher position in drafts this season. We break it down by differences between single and two-catcher leagues as well.

Hot Topics/Questions

Dave helps us answer the hottest topics regarding the catcher position including:

  • Is taking Realmuto or Sanchez at their current ADP worth it?
  • Thoughts about Salvador Perez coming off a season-ending injury in 2019, Mitch Garver who had a breakout and Wilson Ramos/Yadier Molina who are the older catchers in the league?
  • Do you trust any of the “free” catchers right now Omar Navarrez, Sean Murphy, Travis d’Arnaud

Under-Rated/Over-Rated

We each give one under-rated and over-rated Catcher according to the current ADP.

First Base

Draft Strategy

We go over their draft strategy for attacking the first base position in drafts this season.

Hot Topics/Questions

  • Dave helps us answer the hottest topics regarding the first base position including:
  • Can Cody Bellinger repeat his monster 2019 or will we get the 2017 or even 2018 version?
  • Pete Alonso worth a 3rd round or in some league 2nd round pick or do we worry about the dreaded Sophomore slump?
  • Josh Bell had his best season by far last year, was it a fluke?
  • Is Paul Goldschmidt past his prime?

Under-Rated/Over-Rated

We each give one under-rated and over-rated First Baseman according to the current ADP.
