The (dead) Weight of Wieters

I'm a big fan of the Ron Popeil rules for catchers, the whole "set it and forget it" theory, but sometimes you gotta wonder if guys are going to come around, especially if they play on a bad team.

I've been very patient with Matt Wieters sucking up my lone catcher slot for most of the season. When is it too soon to swap a catcher?

Soto, Snyder, Montero and Buck are just some of the names on the wire in my league. Do I cut weight for any of these guys, or do I wait until the weather warms up and Omar Little crosses from East to West B-More to fill Wieters' bowl with Honey Nut?

Unfortunately, Napoli isn't available. As a fan, I try to only own one Chicago Cubs player and I've maxed that out with Wells, though I might have to make an exception if Wieters doesn't pull his weight.

pick up whichever catcher you want and stash weiters by dropping aroldis. maybe try to trade aroldis for something else...maybe a catcher?

I like the trading idea the best.

It has been so painful seeing his daily 0-4 line. I drafted him in the 6th round hoping that I would get a monster year. I'm not ready to give up yet but damn am I frustrated.

I'd just let Wieters play, but Montero is worth grabbing for when he returns, though I wouldn't want him until he's playing so you'd have to stash for a bit.

Thanks. I dropped Chapman for Montero. Chapman's not coming up anytime soon.
