I can see your point. But I'll tell you why I did it. Prior to this I had Kinsler/Howard/Stubbs/Cruz/Hardy/Montero. All low average and pretty in-consistent guys. I think Asdrubal is a lot better than Hardy. Higher average, Higher OBP, more RBI, same number of HR and more steals. He's a top 25 fantasy player this season and hits really well with RISP. I was skeptical to give up Cruz for Jones because like you said I trust Cruz more than Jones, but Jones has always had huge potential and now it's showing. He gives a little more speed(not much) but helps more with AVG and OBP. And Vogelsong really meant nothing to me. I have Verlander and CJ Wilson and there are plenty of other free agent pitchers out there who are just as good as Vogelsong. After the trade I went and picked up Vance Worley.
My philosophy has always been a potent and consistent offense is alot harder to build than starting pitching. Starting pitching is ALWAYS available and potent offensive players are not.
