Buy Carlos Gonzalez?

Is he worth a shot for a trade target? It seems like he is hitting the ball hard and is apparently "healthy" by CarGo standards.

Sure, if you don't pay a huge price

I just looked at this earlier, but his hard hit rate is down to 27% this year where it's been 34% for his career. His ground ball rate is also above career norms at 50% (45% career). It's hard to hit for power if half the balls in play are grounders and you're making weaker contact. Combine that with the fact he hasn't even attempted a steal and I'd stay away unless it was for a discount to draft day value. His average will come up, but I don't see him being the 20/20 option he once was.

CarGo or David Ortiz in a vacuum?
