Report: O's looking at Jason Bartlett & J.J. Hardy as trade targets

From Jeff Zrebiec:

They've had trade discussions with the Tampa Bay Rays about Jason Bartlett, and the Minnesota Twins about J.J. Hardy.

The talks with the Rays included discussion of a potential swap of Orioles reliever David Hernandez for Bartlett, who hit .254 with four homers and 47 RBIs in 2010, but is a career .281 hitter. However, that deal appears unlikely at this point as the Orioles consider other options.


I would prefer Hardy to Bartlett, all things considered. Hardy is younger three years younger and, from what I've seen, better defensively. Neither is a whiz with the bat, and both are free agents after 2011.

So what say you, Camden Chatters? Would you swap Hernandez for Bartlett? How about for Hardy? I would. Although I'd do pretty much anything to keep from ever having to see Cesar Izturis again.
