Rumor that we're after JJ Hardy....and in the same deal, we trade Porcello -- the guy that desperately needs a good fielding SS behind him
Hardy is good defensively but his offense is pretty meh. Not sure he's much of an upgrade.
His offense is hardly meh. He won't hit for a high average, but he's good for 20 HR and 75 RBI if he stays healthy. Peralta takes a few more walks, but also has a slightly higher K rate. Really the offense we'd be looking at getting out of the position would remain pretty much the same. Given that and the fact that he's on another planet defensively than Peralta, I think it'd be a definite upgrade. Not completely sold on getting rid of Porcello, but if that meant getting Hardy I'd do the deal.
I would as well. Hardy would be a great addition to the team and lineup.
