Two trades on the table:
Trade A
I give: Nelson Cruz, Jesus Montero
I get: Zack Greinke

Trade B
I give: Nelson Cruz
I get: Yu Darvish

I like the Darvish trade personally, despite the O-rankings, and with Wainwright and Moore sucking it up so far, I could really use pitching help. What say you?

I think you're right to try to move Montero, that's wasted assets on your bench. I'd try another deal to move him with another player to get Greinke, or ask for a little more in return.

I think you should be getting a little more in return in both trades.

Actually, lemme change what I said earlier. I didnt realize you had Posey at C already, so Montero is not much value to you. I would actually take the first trade now that I know this. Greinke is a stud and will def help your pitching staff out.

Sorry to change it up on you like that, but I didnt read carefully enough the first time I saw your post.

I'd do the first deal. Greinke looks studly this year.

And while Cruz is totally on fire now, remember that his average season AB's is around 450, and he's had 146 so far. Cash in on that production and sell high.

I do agree you may be able to get more especially for Darvish, but on the first trade i say its a good Deal as the above poster said, sell Cruz while he is hot
