Gio Gonzalez
Adenhart
Eric Hurley
Gallardo
Erbe
Micah Owings

I assume this is a keeper league.

I'm a huge fan of Gallardo, but I don't think you can go wrong with Gio, Adenhart, or Erbe.

I would think you could get more than just one prospect for Young.

i agree! i you can't i think i'd hold onto Young as he's likely to be up sooner than the others.

Sorry, not very bright. I thought you meant Chris Young the Padres pitcher. I'd trade him for Nick Adenhart.

appreciate the replies guys

If this were a roto league that didn't mark against K's I'd never trade C Young...but ???

so Adenhart is a guy you'd take? And Gallardo?


In this league, for example, A Harang -318-has more points than Pujols -301-

I really like Gallardo a lot, as do I like Adenhart. A plus for both is that they both look like they're going to play for very good offenses, which means wins.

It's tough to know a lot about Gallardo outside of his numbers, but scouts say he has a good, lively fastball, a hammer curve and a solid change. He has good control and a good pitcher's body. He struck out 103 in 77 innings at A+ ball, and his BAA was something ridiculously low. In his first AA start, he gave up just 3 hits in 7 innings while striking out 6. He's also young, and is slowly becoming the Brewers' top prospect (ahead of Braun and Rogers).

Adenhart is a stud. I'd trade Chris Young for either, but probably would prefer Gallardo. I like Gio Gonzalez and think he's close, but I think playing in the NL East will hurt his stock a bit. Erbe is way too far away, though he has excellent stuff, and I'm not too sure what to think about former Tulane two-way star Micah Owings. I do not know much about Hurley.
