Looks like both your pitching and your outfield are in pretty good shape. The trade is fair considering the players involved, but I don't see this as an upgrade for you. If you already have Beltran on your bench, you certainly don't need Cruz. Tell the other guy that it's a nice offer, but decline.

yeah, absolutely.

Cruz would be a bench warmer on your team, while Pedro still can give you great outings!

YOu would not gain anything, although, as Arlo said, it would be a fair deal!

So I would strongly recommend not to do it, too!
