Dee Gordon or JJ Hardy

Postby baseballfanTigers » Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:20 am

I have Dee Gordon on my team. Should I trade for Hardy? Do you think Hardy will turn it around and raise his average a little?

Usually when you have Dee, it is strictly for the speed. I wouldn't be able to comment fairly without seeing if you can take the hit there. Generally I would say I am not the biggest Hardy fan. I think Gordon was removed from the game yesterday but I'm not sure what it was.

Help here please? viewtopic.php?t=449880

Edit: here is what I saw:
Dee Gordon was replaced at shortstop heading to the top of the ninth in Sunday's game against the Mets.Gordon, who had three steals tonight, appeared to tweak something running out a grounder in the bottom of the eighth. He's probably just day-to-day, but his owners should stay tuned for an update. Jul 1 - 11:07 PM

I've always like Dee so I'd stick with him over Hardy. I think Hardy does offer some average potential but he can be a streaky hitter. I like the Gordon's direction as of late and if his injury is minor, there's no reason to move on another SS.

Hardy. Avg will be mediocre at best but he will hit for power at a thin position. Gordon does nothing but steal bases and make errors.

Depends: this comes down to needs. I would do whatever you NEED. Its easier to get speed. There are guys like Quentin Berry, Rajai Davis, even Tony Campana (when he plays...) for speed....

In a vacuum I'd go with Hardy, but if you NEED speed and can't get any from FFA i'd stick with Gordon I guess.

I would agree with MadDog. If you really value speed, then I would stick with him. If it's not a big need for you or if you get get some off the waiver wire, go with Hardy. I just dropped Gordon in my league, I was tired of pulling my hair out starting him, and I'd rather take the hit on one category than have him ruin all my others.

Help with mine please? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=449934
