Sign Juan Encarnacion


Recommended Posts

Juan Encarnacion appears to be back in his 2003 form and swinging the bat well. He is an impending free agent and is a cheap option to have in right field. Juan Encarnacion is only 29 and could still be improving his numbers. If we could sign him to a four year deal worth on average for $5 million a season, he would a great bargain.

 

P.S. I think Lowell will have a monster if my MVP 2005 game is correct. I simulated the entire season and he batted .305 with 42 HR and 108 RBI, Miguel Cabrera batted .310 with 36 HR and 118 RBI, and Carlos Delgado batted .295 with 44 HR and 102 RBI.

I think those SIM numbers are a little high- especially for Lowell. Anyway, signing Juan E. to a 4 year deal would NOT be smart. If he has a good year then I would consider a 1 year contract but thats it.

I think there's a very slim chance Enc is with the Marlins next year. The organization is really high on Jeremy Hermida and they'll be a lot of bills to pay this offseason (Cabrera, Beckett, Burnett, Willis, Gonzalez, 2 SPs, relief)

 

He'd be nice insurance option to have around, but if Juan keeps playing this well he'll be too expensive and he flops the club won't want him back.

As long as Encarnacion continues to be productive at the plate the Marlins (at least for 2005) are in a no lose situation.

 

He has every reason to produce and the Marlins have no obligation to him beyond this year, it's a situation tailor-made for Samson's dictum that the Marlins need players who play up to 110% of their potential. It looks like he's going to see alot of RBI opportunities this season batting seventh. Let's hope he can drive in a ton of runs (as opposed to eight so far on two grand slams) because having a productive bottom of the lineup is crucial to the team's success.

Back in 2003 form? It's been like 6 games. Simmer down

Exactly, why don't we wait atleast until after the all star break to make any decisions on long term contracts on unproven players.

Agreed...I'd rather wait and see if he can keep up this pace he's set for himself.

I'm not 100% sold on Hermida as heir apparent in RF, at least until he shows he can bring up his power numbers and hit for average in the bigs. That statement should not be read as I'm down on the kid because I'm not. I'm just not convinced (yet) that he's going to be ready for 2006.

 

Speaking of which, the Isotopes' website has no data but from minorleaguebaseball.com it appears that Jorgenson and Willingham are sharing catching duties (two games each) and Jorgy is hitting the heck out of the ball while Willy is struggling big time. Of course they are only four games into the season. Stokes is doing well with two homeruns already.

 

Hermida is batting .083 so far for the Mudcats in four games. Resop, Kensing and the rest of the pitchers are so far pitching extraordinarily well.

 

Good luck to both teams this season.

well Willingham has been out because he took a beating behind the plate 2 games ago and also got hit by a pitch... needed a few days off

 

also, Willingham could always be an OF next year

Way to jump the gun.

 

Hee Seop Choi had a MONSTER first month, you never saw anyone wanting to sign him to a four year deal. Signing ENC to a four year deal is pure lunacy, ESPECIALLY when we have Hermida in the very near future.

 

As for your MVP Baseball predictions, I can't believe you're basing real world stats around a simple sim from a video game. Every stat a player receives in that game depends entirely upon his ratings that the developers of the game gave that particular player, and a countless number of ratings are off, for example Seabass' defense and range as well as his arm strength and accuracy is rated like 55 when he should be at least a 90.

From what I've read/heard most expect Hermida to grow into his power. Hopefully the homers in the thin air of the Arizona Fall League are an indication of that, but his peripherals (a K to walk ratio slightly of 4-to-1) suggest not. We've already discussed that.

 

FWIW, Beinfest said last fall he expects Hermida to make the jump this summer. Probably not into a full time role. Perhaps not at all with the Delgado signing and the presence of Aguila. It is telling of Beinfest's trust in the kid. Although he may have been BSing for his audience.
