We are all well aware of his injury concerns and know that he will not play a whole season. What we do know is that we payed nothing for him and are currently getting much more production per that investment. I bid on Verlander but he went for a dollar less than B Webb, so I made the obvious choice. I like Verlander, but at this point in the season I am much happier to have drafted Harden for a dollar than to have wasted $23 on Verlander. No one could have foreseen this outcome to this point, but I am happy I came out ahead. I don't think anyone has said Harden will play the rest of the season. What they are saying is that while he is on the mound, you will get more production out of him than Verlander. Which is a tough point to argue against. So I will continue to get better production out of my 5th pitcher while your #1 continues to struggle.....that is what the pro Harden argument boils down to.ScrappyDoo wrote:Yoda wrote:Great Scrappy... so now all of the people who didn't draft Harden are morons? Keep digging that hole.
Sorry man, the original post is "who do you like better the rest of the year." Not "who gives you more bang for their buck relative to their ADP," or "who performs better when they actually pitch."
