thx for help on mine.

You have a pretty good mix of power and speed on your team so that really doesn't factor here. Honestly, I'd think about dropping Boesch for him. Since it's roto, I would think about having Gordon (along with Bourn, Upton, Crawford, Jones) all get you a fantastic lead in SB & triples for a few months. Gordon is a guy who can lead the league in steals easily. Then after a few months I would flip him to someone who is desperate for steals and get some help in a category you need to catch up in.

Boesch is just an average OF IMO. He's also the worst OF you have on your team so you can afford to make that move. Keep Hardy though.

They both may be 1 trick ponies. Hardy will get HR's, and Gordon SB's.

I slightly prefer Gordon, but may drop Boesch for him.

You can't easily find a potential 60-70 SB guy w/ guaranteed playing time in free agency. You can easily find an avg OF who will maybe hit 15HR's w/ 6SB's and a .270avg (Boesch)

Hardy is a better fit for your team with Bourn already aboard. Stick with him, power is tougher to find anyways

Ditto. You have your big steals guy. Stick with Hardy's power to balance off your roster.

Hardy is likely to go sooner, but I'll admit my crush on Dee would influence me. Admittingly, at the same time, if both are there, I'd wait on Dee thinking he would fall, and then drafdt elsewhere.
