Red Sox - Acquired Cruz Jr.
Boston Red Sox - Acquired OF Jose Cruz Jr. from the Arizona Diamondbacks for IF Kenny Perez and P Kyle Bono
Well, this is certainly about a million times better than the puzzling Shoppach-Stern for Larry Bigbie trade that made the rounds yesterday. The Red Sox give up two non-prospects instead of a good catching prospect and a usuable 4th outfielder for a player that’s better than the aforementioned Bigbie. Whoever thought up the original trade should probably be given a pink slip Monday morning and be thankful that they escaped without being eviscerated. The Diamondbacks get nothing, but then, they didn’t expect to when they DFAed Cruz.
It’s nice to see the Red Sox realize that they could improve themselves without giving away their prospects for a mediocre outfielder or helping the Devil Rays take all the Met prospects.
