In choices like this. I prefer and value the player who can hit for a higher average. Nava can be streaky, yes. However, he is More consistent in production than he is streaky in being cold. He's fluttered a bit the past two weeks, but in a recent 3 days he's producing like he has all season. Like pointed out above: Baltimore is doing fine and hardy is in that line up. I'm going to make the same case and point for nava with Boston. Boston has been solid and nava has been apart of the top of the order rolling in production. Hardy does offer HR value, but I think with navas role in the top of the line up, overall he will produce in runs and rbis solidly. While providing a batting average, and has the ability to hit around 20HR this season.
- I will take the batting average, runs, rbis, constant production, Boston(solid), and 7 HR less than jj hardy from nava than I would a +7 HR from hardy (20-27 HR estimated for hardy in post above. (nava has 10 HR already))
