Cruz or McCutchen??

Postby oconnellk22 » Thu Jun 30, 2011 9:32 pm

Team:
C- JP Arencibia
1b- Gaby Sanchez
2b- Rickie Weeks
38- Youklis
ss- Aybar
of- Holliday, Stubbs, Francour
util- Adrian Beltre, jj Hardy
bench- Colby Rasmus, Matt Joyce
DL- Pujols

Sp- Verlander, Grienke, Marcum, Kennedy, Jurrjens, Pineda, Cueto, Lilly
Rp- K-Rod, League, Soria

Currently in first but offense is struggling and second and third place teams are catching up. Was offered Nelson Cruz for Rasmus and Ian Kennedy. The team also has McCutchen starting and has Ryan Zimmerman on the bench. Should i try and get McCutchen or is the original deal fair?

Yeah this is tough. I would take a healthy Cruz EVERY day over McCutchen, seriosuly Cruz can hit with the best of them. He is a serious hitter, but has a mean streak of injuries. I usually dont care too much about injuries, but Nelson Cruz has shown his body just isnt up to the job every yr. Do I think he'll get injured this yr? yeah he already has. Do i think injury free he will put up better numbers than McCutchen? Every single day. I would bet on Cruz here, mainly because I dont speculate on a player future health, but their current health and what that can do for me for the rest of the yr.

Well if you need the power more, I would go for Nelson Cruz.

Cheap price to pay for Cruz, a nice buy low guy. I'd just take the deal on the table you won't miss what your giving up. McC might cost too much and it might drive the other guy off the table to make a deal. Just take what you can get in this instance.
