Trade Sandoval for Gallardo? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun Jun 17, 2012 11:45 am

Beachy hit the DL. I added Samardzija but is that enough? Do I take this deal?

I give: Pablo Sandoval
I get: Yovani Gallardo

With Beachy hurt and Lincecum bad, I need SP help.
Samardzija has been dropped and is available. Should I drop Gordon Beckham or Brandon Moss to add him?

I probably would make the deal actually. I would say the two players are equal in terms of value, and Hosmer/Soriano/Moss/LaHair can pick up some of the slack from losing Panda, especially if Hosmer gets hot.

To me it looks like you have enough pitching, so I'll evaluate this deal on who I think is the better player of the two. It's close, so if you really think that you need pitching, I'd have no problem with you making it.

It's an interesting comparison between these two guys. Each have been pretty volatile in their careers and this season. However, I like Panda better. As a fairly quantifiable comparison, I'd probably draft Panda a few rounds, maybe 3, ahead of Gallardo if there were a redraft today. Panda's stats are all pretty stable with a babip around normal for him, customary very low K-rate, and a bb-rate that could actually improve. On the other hand, Gallardo has some pretty big red flags. His FIP and xFIP point to him being a pitcher with around an era of 4. The K rate is still great, but his major issue has been that he reverted to his problem of the past: walks. His success last year was predicated upon the lowest bb-rate of his career, but thus far it's been way up... almost 1.5 more per game compared to last year (though he has been better in June). Additionally, his fastball is a tick slower this season, dropping by .8 MPH, a pretty significant drop.

At this point, Gallardo is a high risk/ high reward type of guy. I'm not sure it makes to deal an excellent hitter for that. You could probably get a better pitcher. I do like the idea of dropping Moss for Shark, though.
