Platoon Longoria and Encarnacion and trade away Aramis?

Postby Tony B. » Thu Jul 24, 2008 1:14 pm

Someone dropped Edwin Encarnacion. I'm currently playing Aramis at 3B and Longoria at one of my UTL spots. I could pick up Encarnacion and platoon him with Longoria at 3B and maybe trade away Aramis for a top SP.

My current rotation is:

Billingsley
Lincecum
Ervin Santana
Duchscherer
Guthrie
Lackey
Baker

What type of SP could I fetch for Aramis? He's a 5th round pick but I'm not keeping him due to having Longoria as a rd 21 keeper. Or, is my rotation strong enough to hold up the next 2 months?

That's kind of crazy that Encarnacion was dropped - but, yeah, I'd definitely pick him up. With Aramis, I might try to move him for someone like Verlander or Shields + a lower tier closer or something else you need. You can try aiming for Peavy - as his owner might be a little disappointed in the lack of wins (and his last outing wasn't great), but you might need to package him with something else. You're right, though, draft position doesn't mean nearly as much at this point in the season when you're going for a championship.
