If it's just one I am taking Gardner 10 out of 10.Originally Posted by False1
More value because he plays every day and he actually has only 1 year of MLB service time. Hughes goes into arbitration next year.
Watching wise I'll take Gardner too for the same reasons.
It also helps Elias rankings undervalue OBP and SB, keeping Gardner's prices low even late into his arbitration years.
At Gardner's current rate of production, we're talking about all-star appearance and MVP votes. With Granderson on the DL, there is a very good chance Gardner is going represent the Yankees OF at the all-star game (still long shot.)
Hughes is obviously on pace to be in top 5 CY votes (if not very top). Too bad he has innings limits.
