I had him about here before the season, but after watching just about every televised Brewer game and attending 3 more, I think JJ might be making that "jump" that some have predicted from him. That dead pull power that some were projecting of him is starting to manifest, and his plate discipline could lend to a good season. He'll clearly cool down from this, but you could do worse as a 2nd MI or even a starter in a deep league.

Very talented but needs to stay healthy... 20 HR upside.

Id wait for the breakout before I made a drastic move.. Guillen, etc will still be far more productive this year

Personally I think he's a better SS than Reyes for real baseball, better fielder, more power he just doesn't steal.

Who would you rather have on your Fantasy team Hardy or Kelly Johnson?

JJ Hardy is doing what Tulu should be doing and Josh Hamilton is doing what Alex Gordon ought to be doing. And John Buck has switched bodies w/ Ianetta.


I think he's for real.

of the three mystery boys (hardy,crosby,greene) who've done something in the minors, but been too dinged with injuries to have a full shot at showing what they can do in the majors,

looks like hardy's the clear winner.

think it has some staying power.. the other two swing too hard whereas hardy has a nice, easy fly ball swing..all these factors bad for average, but hardy looks to have enough natural pop to get some of these balls over the fence to like 25-30

25-30 seems very ambitious to me. 25 HRs in 1122 ABs in the minors, looks like about 1 every 30 ABs in the bigs - he could develop something of a power stroke, and he's showing that now - but I think anything above 20HRs is still an outside bet for this year.

He has 20 HR's in 578 major league AB's and that includes a stretch in the first half of 2005 where he was coming off of a nasty shoulder injury and was just terrible.

I don't think 20 HR's is a stretch at all, now 30 probably is.
