Your pitching is really stacked, so I'm hesitant. However, Cruz is on a downswing right now and I think you are getting a good price on him, while Hart is hot and you are selling him thus. JJ obviously is hurt and gets a value drop because of that.


Crawford over Cruz by a wide margain, but mainly in a category you are OK in.

JJ over Hart by a lot, and even moreso because you have so much OF depth.


I'd take this deal on the strength of the value, postion upgrades, and high reward potential.

You're pitching staff is already pretty good. If you're looking to move an OF, why not upgrade your 3B?

not much i can do about 3b

its extremely hard to trade for a better 3b when all 10 teams really need their 3b that they have. best available would be polanco or reynolds...not much out there...the only guy with an extra 3b ( he has zimmerman and arod) will NOT trade either, besides i would hate to overpay for the overrated zimmerman

I see you've posted this question a few times now...a bit much don't you think??? anyhow, like all above I believe you have a fairly strong pitching staff and in a shallow league there is always a decent pitching option out there. 3B is where you need help in so maybe try for a package that involves Zimmerman.
