2013 Composite Rankings: Catchers

Well, here we go!

I made a promise the blog would soon turn to a fantasy blog, and after a few weeks off, it is finally here.

I know most fantasy baseball sites are still not up (Yahoo!) but some deadlines set by commissioners for keeper players are just around the corner.

Since it's never too early in the off-season to talk fantasy, we start out composite series with a look at the catchers.

Here's where they rank going into 2013.
