Huh?

Rolen just went. It's round 16 of 28. How long can I wait on EE?
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

I suppose I could put this gently but I won't.

Leftovers is a forum for things that other people might be interested in. Who you should draft as your 3b really isn't one of them. The place for those types of things is here: viewforum.php?f=26

As far as how long you can wait on EE, I don't care. It's not my draft and won't help me with my draft and doesn't even give me any interesting baseball information on people who are in the pool of people who I could draft. Wait as long as you like.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

It's a good thing you're a moderator and can kindly move this thread for me to the appropriate forum.

Wait, you're not.

I remember, before being married, being really frustrated on a Friday night if there was nothing better to do than waste time online. There are better sites than this one to help relieve your frustrations bro. Sorry for wasting your time and posting in the wrong forum. :roll:

Is he the everyday DH?

That's the way things look to start the year, yeah. Brett Lawrie is being developed in AAA at third, and if he got called up it would likely push Bautista back to RF (where he wants to be anyway) and move Rivera to a 4th OF/DH role. EE might get squeezed for ABs at that point, but I'm not worrying about it too much to start the year.

As for how long you can wait, I'd imagine that you'll be able to get him in 18th to 20th round this year no sweat, and maybe a lot later in some drafts, since he isn't even on some expert top 300 rankings. ESPN has him ranked at 196, but that's the nicest I've seen anyone be.

Nice, I hope that works out for you. I have Encarnations targetted as a late round sleeper in pretty much every draft this year. In some cases I need him to backfill for a CI guy that might be injured to start (Morales %-6 ), but also in some other drafts based soley on his possible value as a 3B with some power who be a good trade piece. Anyway, I wasn't suggesting that you do something I wasn't willing to do myself. :-D
