In a re-draft, should Longoria be rostered let alone startin

Postby Millhouse » Fri Jun 06, 2008 10:10 am

I've been hoping that Longoria picks it up in the AVG department, but even though he dabbled in the .300's in the low minors, as he's moved up he's looked more like a .250 kinda guy with decent power. In a (10-team) non-keeper league, is anyone out there starting Longoria...and should I be when there are some more proven vets on the wire that could help in other categories (vs. hoping Longoria hits some HRs)?

Just trying to gauge if there are other Longoria owners in fairly deep non-keepers, and how they value him....

Longoria will be a stud...when he figures it out is the guessing game. Keep him on the bench if you have him and have the room....you don't want to drop him to then see him go off and find his groove.

I think in a 10-team, non-keeper, standard positions (no MI, CI, only 3 OF, and one UTIL), I'd still have Longoria on my bench...he has too much upside to sit on the WW, but I agree about not starting him.

we have MI and 3B but don't want to turn this into a specific "my team" thread, trying to keep it general re: his value, but thanks for the input.

I have him on my bench in a non-keeper H2H league. I play him sparingly, but I keep him just hoping for him to break out. The other reason I'm holding him is that there was talk of him playing some SS. If he becomes SS eligible, I would have to consider playing him ahead of Orlando Cabrera (my current starter).

I always laughed at the guys who would pick up Longoria off the WW or FA, then immediately trade their Wright/MCab/A-Rod to make room for him. He'll likely be a .250-.260 hitter this year with good power, but his ceiling is huge. Wait till 2010 or maybe even next year, and he'll be a top hitter, maybe as high as 3rd round for the following year. But yeah, in a non-keeper, he's a decent power option to own, but he should not be your main option at 3B.
