I'm not sure how you would sell high on Cruz. I'm still penciling him in for 30+ HRs with a chance to nose around 40. Sure, I'd trade him for Pujols but noone who owns Pujols is going to do that swap. So maybe you could trade him for more of an established OF like Manny or Bay or Ellsbury but I don't think I'd want to do that.
This past week doesn't mean that he's going to hit 120 HRs but it does validate, or at least begin to validate, that he is a legitimate power threat. I thought that was true in the pre-season; I think that is true now. Basically, this past week hasn't moved his perceived value at all in my eyes. Well, maybe a little bit... but not much.
