This is close. Gallardo provides 9 k/9, W's and a decent 3.5ERA. I was not a huge middlebrooks fan but after looking back, if he keeps that K rate down he could hit .280, with 25-30hr. Think Aramis Ramirez when he was 26. I'd say lean batter as they are more consistent, but middlebrooks is young...i'd go middlebrooks, you can find pitching.
Thanks. I have Miggy at 3B (and plenty of solid bats for that matter). I need pitching & specifically Ks. From what you are saying my trade offer (which is what this is) for Gallardo is solid. Does not mean the guy will accept, but he should not be offended at the very least. Thanks again.
