Longoria's Value in a Keeper?

Postby machine3 » Wed Jul 09, 2008 6:33 pm

What is Longoria's ceiling? Who can he be compared to? Can he approach the numbers of Braun or Wright? Or was his hot streak just temporary? I know I have a lot of questions, but I've gotten trade offers for him, but have hesitated to pull the trigger since it's a keeper league. I like his potential, but what are your predictions for his future?
Thanks in advance, and I WHIR.

5. longoria or chipper depending on your long-term outlook.



id keep him over zimmerman or anyone else at this point.


Will Braun be eligible next year? I don't see a lot of Brewers games, has he seen any time at third?

Miggy will be 3B eligible for at least one more year also. But I'd safely put Longoria about 6-7ish also.

I think Longoria can be just as good if not better than Braun. Longoria may not have the raw power of Braun but I think he will maintain a better average. He's easily got top 3-4 3B potential.....it's really hard to say if he will fully live up to it but I expect him too.

I would take him over chipper and atkins. Atkins isnt doing as well as did he in the past. Longoria is young and in a great program for him to do well

In a keeper, I may draft ARam first but if ARam were offered to me for Longoria, I think I'd pass.

:-S

Right now I'd go:
1. Arod
2. Wright
3. MCab
4. Longoria

Braun won't be eligible at 3B in 09.
