So here is my team. I'm in a 10 team Yahoo Standard 5x5 H2H league with some friends. I'm currently 1.5 games out, sitting in third place.

C- Buck
1B- Pujols
2B- Roberts
3B- Longoria
SS- Jeter
OF- Manny Ramirez, Holliday, Cruz
UTIL- Ibanez
DL- A-Rod
BN- Wieters, Stephen Drew

SP- Billingsley, Burnett, Liriano, Gallaraga
RP- Lidge, Franklin, Rodney, Gregg
DL- Lackey

Is it time to sell high on Cruz and get something good for him? I really, really like Cruz and do not want to trade him if he is legit. On the other hand, his value is extremely high right now and I might be able to get something nice. When A-Rod gets back, I'm going to have to sit or trade an OF anyway. I was thinking about offering Liriano and Ibanez/Cruz and Stephen Drew for Brandon Webb/Ryan Braun, which clear up a roster spot for A-Rod. Who would you rather have for the rest of the year- Ibanez or Cruz? What do you guys think?
Thank you kindly.
10 Team H2H 6x6
C- B. Molina
1B- G. Jones (Berkman)
2B- Weeks (Kinsler)
3B- Arod
SS- Tejada
OF- Manny
OF- Ethier
OF- Magglio
Util- Matsui
BN- C Lee
DL- Beltran

SP- King Felix, Wainwright, Verlander, Santana, Hanson, Scherzer
RP- Fuentes, Cordero, Jenks

Hey man, big fan of your team. I always look for balance on my roster and you certainly have it! I like the idea of trading Liriano-Cruz-Drew, but I would not take the risk on Webb, I would try for Halladay or even Dan Haren.

I would definitely trade Cruz with his value peaking right now. He may be legit and put up monster numbers this year, but he's still unproven and rookies tend to wear out over the long season. Your other OFs are proven studs who you know you can count on for the long haul.

And I disagree about Webb. Everything I've heard indicates that his current problem shouldn't be a nagging one. And if you're worried about injury issues Liriano's elbow is just as concerning even though so far he's been pitching without pain. Besides, I don't think anybody would package a safe stud like Haren or Halladay with Braun anyways.
