  1. I might call taking Hardy in round 5 a slight misstep; I agree that it’s great to have such a solid MI in a deep league, but Peralta wasn’t taken until the 9th round and I just don’t see much difference between those two players.  True, the Duke did not cost you much, but the staff is weak already, and with him gone is that much worse for the time being.  Hindsight is obviously 20/20 but I’d personally like the team better with Peralta at MI and one of Vazquez/Nolasco/Shields at SP.

  2. Finn,

    I agree with you 100%. I consider Hardy in the 5th round my weakest pick in the draft. Although I like him better than the two shortstops taken after, Furcal and Drew, my team would probably look better with one of the pitchers you mentioned.

    I am involved in interesting trade offers for Hardy and Pedroia at the moment though.
