What to do with Cruz?

Postby BlueJaysFan » Mon May 23, 2011 2:28 pm

Cruz came back today, but he is still on my deal. I couldn't find a single player worth dropping. This sounds crazy, as Cruz is better than several of my batters, but I just can't let myself part with any of them for nothing. The only player I'm considering to drop is Brown, but he is a top prospect and I'm sure is he has value. I'm very active in trading, (I made 3 deals in the last 3 days), but I just can't make a 2 for 1. The closest I came was Hunter for Brown and Lowrie but I didn't like it. I just traded Castro for Masterson, so I need Lowrie and Aybar to play SS. Any help would be appreciated, as I don't want to keep Cruz on my DL for more than 1 day.

Aybar or Brown should be an easy drop. Even when Brown was healthy last season, he did not look productive. Aybar, on the other hand, will only really get you some steals. You can defiantly do without one of those two.

You could drop Aybar, Kubel or Brown...but I would probably cut Brown. I've already cut him.
