Trade Nelson Cruz for Brett Lawrie?

Postby zyzzbrah34 » Sat Jul 07, 2012 9:23 pm

Here's their stats so far:

Runs- Lawrie 51, Cruz 46
HR- Cruz 11, Lawrie 8
RBI Cruz 51, Lawrie 33
SB Lawrie 11, Cruz 6
AVG Lawrie .290, Cruz .261

I'm 1st in HR and RBI in my league, but last in SB, and also need improvement in AVG and Runs

My batters-
Buster Posey, Prince Fielder, Brandon Phillips, Jose Bautista, Ian Desmond, Asdrubal Cabrera, Kevin Youkillis, Nelson Cruz, Michael Morse, Juston Upton, Angel Pagan, Alfonso Soriano, Corey Hart, WIll Middlebrooks, Troy Tulowitzki DL

Update: Just saw this..not sure if it impacts anything:

Lawrie left Saturday's game against the White Sox early with a stiff back.
Spin: He was reportedly removed for precautionary reasons, so it is not anticipated to be a serious injury. With Sunday the final games prior to the All-Star break, the Jays could opt to have him get a little extra rest, so those in daily leagues may want to check his lineup status.

In general, I make that trade in a heartbeat especially with position of 3b being weaker than OF, but you have Joey Bats at 3b, so I would see about other moves - but I do think it is an upgrade.

Is this stiff back injury a concern? I'm always paranoid about these things.

The back shouldn't be an issue, he'll get almost a week off.

I don't know if you're really improving much this year, but if it's a keeper league, I'd be more inclined to make the deal.

If this is a keeper league, this is a no-brainer. You may have Bautista at 3B right now, but he won't be eligible there next year and Lawrie should be a top 3B for years to come.

If it isn't a keeper it becomes a closer deal, mainly because until Lawrie gets moved into a run producing spot in the order the RBIs won't be there. But Cruz is an injury risk and has been declining over years, so I'd probably still take Lawrie.

Keep or get lawrie....He will get a ton of runs from bautista and would be a great keeper.
