I need a catcher. My catcher is Posada, who is on the DL. The trade also involves me giving up from my minor league roster Homer Bailey for Gio Gonzalez and Jake Mcgee. I would have to drop another minor leaguer. My team right now is:

C Jason Kendall
1B David Ortiz
2B Kazuo Matsui
3B Ty Wigginton
SS Bobby Crosby
OF Adam Dunn
OF Nate McLouth
OF Josh Hamilton
Util Derrek Lee
BN Aaron Rowand
BN Orlando Hudson
BN Chone Figgins
BN Jorge Posada
DL Hank Blalock

Minor Leagues
Chase Headley
Elvis Andrus
Jeff Niemann
Chris Perez
Phillip Humber
Donald Veal
Brandon Morrow
Chip Cannon
Chris Davis
Homer Bailey

What do you all think? This worth it? Is Baily for real? He stunk last year, but is ripping it up in the minors now. Is Doumit the next Irod or V Martinez? Should I just wait for Jorge to come back and keep Blalock and hope his power and health return? If I do this, who from my minor leagues should I drop?

I would do it. If Doumit doesnt pan out all you lose is Blalock. Gio Gonzalez is a very good prospect in the A's organization with a killer curve ball. They say he could be coming up this year if they aren't in the race come summer. You don't lose much because Blalock was not having a good season and is currently on the DL. Plus Rob said to get him in the beginning of the year and you know what happens when you hype someone up. If Doumit continues you can dangle Jorge Posada for a 3b. Whatever you do dont TRADE Chase.

I leave things as is. Assuming that all you need is one catcher on your roster, Kendall will be just fine. He'll hurt your power numbers, but he'll keep you safe in average.

I still like Blalock, so I wouldn't give up on him yet. And, I wouldn't give up on Homer Bailey just yet, either. He lit up the minors last year, too, before his call up and poor performance. Still, the Reds are going to need him, so a call up is probably coming very soon.

I say yes. I think Blalock has been nothing but a fantasy bust.
