    Hardy vs. Young

    The Rangers are moving Young to 3B sooner or later (and possibly at the start of the year). Young has said that he would like to be traded if this happens and if he gets traded his value drops drastically. Texas is the #1 hitters park in the game so if he leave there you can expect his numbers to drop.

    With that being said, Young is by far the better player and will give you better numbers as long as he is in Texas. Also, his position eligibility will not be affected this year.

    If I were you I would try to trade both of them and then pick up Elvus Andrus (he is Youngs replacement at SS)

      • That does not mean that they still will not trade him. They have Elvus Andrus at SS now so they move Chris Davis to 1B and Young to 3B. However, they are going to bring up Justin Smoak by the end of the year and he will be starting next year at 1B. This means that Andrus will start at SS, Davis at 3B and Smoak at 1B and of course Kinsler at 2B. This leaves no room for Young. They will trade him either at the all star break and if not definitly over next winter break.
