Crawford/Cruz deal! HELP! WHIR!

Postby FrankieYankee » Tue Jun 21, 2011 8:52 am

Im being offered: Nelson Cruz and Brian Roberts or Jason Kubel for Carl Crawford and Aubrey Huff. Keep in mind this is a keeper league. Crawford is $37 next year and Cruz is $8. I could use power, but a little nervous about Cruz’s in injury history.

What do you guys think? WHIR!

I would really like it if Cruz could stay healthy. I have him in my keeper league and wish he could, he also is really hard to trade because of it. You worried about Cruz..... Roberts can't stay healthy. I would be less concerned with Crawford's injury and Huff has showed some signs that he's heating up a little raising his AVG about 20 points in the last couple weeks.

I can probably get Kubel instead of Roberts.

Should I just stay put?

Cruz's injury history is definitely a concern, how many years does the $8 price last for him? If you have salary cap problems it might make sense, otherwise I probably wouldn't do it.
