I need a catcher.  Should I:

wait for Wil Myers, who has C elig

or

trade BPhillips and Buerhle for MMontero and Haren?

Check the waiver wire for Salvador Perez or AJ Ellis... both good temp options and Perez has good upside for possibly being a long term solution

Somewhat dependent on whether it's a 2 catcher league. Montero and Phillips are comparable in overall value in that setup, while Haren is a massive upgrade. Also depends on who Montero is replacing and who replaces Phillips.

It's a 1 catcher league.

If I did it, I'd replace Phillips with Craig or Neil Walker.

But I think I'll stay put.  I just grabbed Rosario who seems to be on par with Montero lately, minus walks.
