Rich Harden.....

Postby mcd285 » Wed Mar 26, 2008 9:44 am

Threw terrific today. 6 innings 9 Ks. 1 ER.

If you can stomach the injury risk, could be a huge payoff.

He did throw fantastic today...about a 20 mph difference between his fastball (95) and his changeup (75) and the hitters couldn't tell the difference during his motion...but it is just one start...but a promising one! His talent has never been in question, it's his durability...as a cubs fan, i've always called Harden the Kerry Wood of the AL West.

he went in the 14th in my most recent draft.

High risk high reward I guess.

Harden is actually a modern day Siren of the fantasy baseball world. It's been proven.

I drafted him in the 16th round. I kind of regretted taking him, but I hope he strings together 3 or 4 dominant starts, so I can trade him for someone like Oswalt or Harang.

Unless there are some beginners in your league, you're not going to trade Harden for Oswalt or Harang. Even if he pitched well for like half the season. When healthy he's not that much better than them and there's a chance he'll go down at any time.

I think he was good value in the 16th round. I was hoping to get him as a reach in the 15th round of my main (12-team) league, but someone snagged him in the 12th. That's a big mistake IMO to take him that early when Maine and some others were still out there, but oh well.

Actually, Oswalt was terribly mediocre last season. I don't know if trading for him would be selling high. :-?

He went in the 18th round of our draft. Everybody'd totally forgotten about him this year. Could be a huge steal.
