I can imagine it would be hard to move Hardy and get any type of value for him. Everybody who doesn't have him is expecting him to cool of and will therefore only offer so much for him. Everybody who DOES have him thinks he's awesome and is hesitant to sell low in case he keeps this up. This makes it hard to find a nice, trabalbe middle ground.

I have him and I'm holding on to him. ;-D

i feel he will start to show is potential if he can be moved lower in the top of the order. he just seems uneasy at leadoff. i mean he has speed but he is a aggressive type hitter. and when he has to try to take pitches i think he misses out on a lot. i think his average, maybe not OBP, will go up if the brewers get another leadoff man, maybe like tony gwynn in the lineup everyday

He would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

LOL, well played. Very appropriate post Yossarian, catch 22 indeed.

Man, your a tough guy to please lol. Besides the Avg he looks A-OK to me, and that was the facet of his game that is expected to be lacking. He also had wrsit injuries last year so cut the kid some slack ;-D

His K rate is respectable and his BB rate is way up. Gotta like the increased plate discipline--it'll lead to better average before long, which is his only lacking category.
