Cruz for Bonifacio? WHIR

Postby ABA316 » Mon Jul 23, 2012 10:38 am

10 team 5 by 5.

I have Bona and lead steals by about 40 lol, was offered Cruz for him. I need the HR/RBI, think Cruz is worth the move?

Bona is an OF right now for me and I just got Crawford off the DL so no worries about replacing him.

That seems fair to me. You could try to get someone less injury-prone, or an extra piece, if you wanted to hype up Bonifacio's base running dominance.

I think Bruce has a better chance to stand up over the rest of the season, but their numbers are pretty close. Not sure if he'd really be better, just more likely to play all the way through to September. He's slumping right now, so if you went for him you should be able to get him.

That's my thought at least I'm less likely to get a DL stint with JB.

I did drop lines to the top 2 teams..they both need steals and are battling with one another day to day in the standings, that might bear more fruit if one decides to do what they must to add SB

Thanks for the help with mine. Cruz isn't hitting for as much power this year. Considering his injury proneness idk if he is worth the risk. If you can get Bruce he is definitely the better option imo. Given your lead in steals it might make sense to deal Boni straight up for Cruz, but I think you'd be getting the raw end of the deal in a vacuum.

Yeah, if you can get JB instead I think that's the way to go. Cruz is a constant injury risk, and as a Cruz owner, even though he's been playing a lot I've been benching him more and more often. He's usually hurt, and when he's not hurt he's streaky. Don't get me wrong, when he's hot there's nobody better IMO. But it's not worth the hassle of waiting for him to put up 2 weeks of great production and then disappear for months on end. I'm sorry I traded for him...I'd hate to see you make the same mistake.

Bruce is streaky and Cruz injury prone ... so neither is a H2H dream. However, with Crawford on the scene I think you move Boni for Bruce to bolster HR/RBI production.

I would definitely do it for Dunn, he's just mashing this year, should help you big time in HR/RBI
