Edwin Encarnacion

Postby Ninjak » Tue Apr 08, 2008 12:49 am

What should I do with this guy? I drafted him on each and every one of my fantasy teams and he's just killing me.

Will he be sent back to the minors?

I doubt he'll go back the minors given that he was a decent player in 2007. He has a lot of upside but still has not lived up to the hype. EE may see less play time when AGonzalez returns from the DL if Keppinger moves to 3B.

Off-topic --> Chipper was #11 in yahoo's game last year -- must be a really shallow league and amazing he'd ever be available.

Like i said, it is a 10 team fixed salary player league and when you have Ryan Braun at a $1. as a keeper from last year and other players under contract from 1-3 years ago you can see where this is going...most people spend $$ on pitching. Just hope Chipper stays healthy.

I have him as well and his 2-20 start is not exciting but its only a week and he is young he needs to get back into the swing of things.

he has been frustrating me as well. but luckily i have yunel who has 3B elig, so i plugged him in there for now with edwin on the bench, hoping he turns it around and goes .280-20-80-80, like i was expecting when i drafted him late
