Heyward's Value

Postby hscsoph » Tue Mar 29, 2011 7:38 am

I am in need of a starting pitcher and have been offered Yovani Gallardo for Jason Heyward. While this deal is tempting, I think Heyward is worth a little more than the Brewers ace. What level of starting pitcher would you target for Heyward?

I am thinking a Verlander level pitcher, some suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Is this a keeper league? And how many teams?

In a non-keeper league I would look at Hanson or Kershaw though Kershaw might be a little too high.

In a redraft then I would say a Verlander type.
Based on what you put I keep Heyward and let the other owners know he is available.

Okay here's the update, I can get Verlander or Kershaw for Heyward. Do you make this deal and who would you rather have? I am leaning towards Kershaw.

Kershaw for the upside, park, and division. I'd have done it for Gallardo, but this is even better.
