2008 Fantasy Baseball Catchers Rankings

Here is a list of catchers based on the weighting of the past three seasons with the most recent contributing 60%, 2006 at 30% and 2005 at 10%. Each player then has his score in each of the five traditional fantasy baseball categories ranked relative to his position peers and averaged to arrive at a composite score - the lower the better.

I did not change where some players ended, but I could not leave catchers like Jarrod Saltalamacchia behind so many mediocrities. So I added an "up" or "down" to some of those whose ranking looks to change significantly in 2008.

Comments are welcome and encouraged.
