QUESTION: I am offered two trades by the same opponent to select from, and they are- 1)Felix Hernandez for Nelson Cruz, or 2)James Shields for Billy Butler. My offense isn't good, and I'm going to accept one. But which? An "expert" said not to accept Cruz since he's injured a lot and can't run anymore. I need your help, friends! Thank you.

I like Cruz, but he's untrustworthy with that injury history. And giving up Shields is preferable to me over Felix. You'd get more wins from Shields, but Felix is the more consistent pitcher over the years. Keep Felix. Trade Shields for Butler.
