Would you trade Bard for Cuddyer, straight up? Cuddyer in Colorado looks enticing, and Bard starting is a mystery.

Without hesitation, yes. My expectations for Bard this season are severely limited, and Cuddyer has a nice setting to be successful this season.

;-D Way to many question marks with Bard.

The guy giving you Cuddyer for Bard needs his head examined. You should accept that asap before he sobers up.

I actually think that Cuddyer is being slightly overrated this season. Even still, I'd much rather have him than Bard.

Cuddyer > Bard. Even if Bard works out he will be limited as far as IP goes. Cuddyer should post good stats in Colorado at a weak 2B position.

Cuddyer, to me, is more valuable in almost every format than Bard. A reliever going to SP generally does not work out as well as a SP converting to RP. Bard should win 10-12 games, ERA flirting with 4.00, maybe 6.8K/ per 9 IP over 155 IP.

I think Chris Sale will be the better RP to SP convert this season.
