Longoria/Lucroy for Encarnacion?

Postby hiro101 » Sun Aug 10, 2014 6:35 am

I have an opportunity to send Longoria and Lucroy for Encarnacion in a 6x6 H2h keeper (keep 5, ops and holds) with normal rosters plus 2 utility spots. I'm out of it this year and looking to improve my keeper situation.

Potential other keepers: Tulo, goldy, fielder, Kluber, garret richards.

My main questions are 1) is lucroy keeper worthy over any of the above 2) is the EE upgrade worth the log jam at 1B (2 utility spots helps) assuming he's not 3b eligible anymore 3) can longoria turn it around and not be mediocre anymore?

There's also a few years in age difference that's on my mind, but not a huge concern.

Thoughts appreciated!

Love Lucroy but in a 5 keeper league, and I assume you start 1 catcher weekly? He isn't worth it.....just be sure to draft him back early next year. Especially with those other options at keeper

Whats the league size?

I'd rather have EE for next year. You'll probably nudge out Fielder or Richards to make room for him.

Like EE as a keeper also. What position would he play for you next year with Goldy at 1B? Just curious.

Help with mine?

Get EE. Let Richards walk next year assuming Fielder is 100%.
