JJ Hardy worth ANYTHING? WHIR guaranteed

Postby jasonpm311 » Thu Jun 09, 2011 8:47 am

Its a 12-team H2H mixed keeper league. I picked up JJ Hardy a couple of days ago, and he's been doing pretty well. Is he worth hanging on to? I ask because I was offered this deal and am wondering if I should take it or just stick with Hardy:

I give: Jon Lester

I get: Stephen Drew and Yovani Gallardo

Obviously if I do it, I'm dropping Hardy outright. Thoughts? Post your links. Thanks!

Gallardo and Lester are closer than you think, and Stephen Drew is more than a viable SS, he is a star. Hardy is trash and cannot be trusted. All that said, I would take the deal. You upgrade hugely at SS and you don't lose much in the pitching, mainly just ERA and that's only based on previous years, not current production. Gallardo could match Lester from here on in and not surprise me one bit.

Agreed. I like this deal for you. Hardy can have his moments but he will be back to WW fodder in the next few weeks.

How about this deal? Our scoring categories are: R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG and ERA, WHIP, K/BB, QS, SV, and K's

I give: Ichiro and Lester

I get: Stephen Drew, Yovani Gallardo, and Gio Gonzalez

I have an extra OF and need SS help. And, obviously, Ichiro isn't as valuable in our league where AVG isn't a category. Should I do it? Post your links so I can return the help. Thanks.

Hell yes I love the new deal. Lester/Gallardo are still close in value. Drew carries more value than Ichiro at this point, especially with your team needs. And I am very high on Gio. He walks a lot of guys but he is starting to figure out his craft, and has even started to understand damage control, as evidenced by his last start. The deal would be close without him in, and he is a top pitcher, not an add on. It all adds up to a really solid deal, even better than the 1st one.

you definitely have to accept this deal. You are getting a solid SS and an ace pitcher who is about the same as Lester.
