Cruz seems like a guy that alot of people around here like, and ARI picks him up for Halsey. Good trade for the Dbacks, IMO

And this is what I mean when I say Beane builds his contenders from February to July. When everyone else is asleep or flat-footed.

I see it as a win-win for both. Both teams traded to address a weakness.

Cruz is odd, he can be lights out and he can get sent down to AAA.

Cruz is odd, he can be lights out and he can get sent down to AAA.in other words, a typical middle relief candidate(albeit one with better stuff).

I guess the A's needed lefty middle relief? Halsey's not good enough to crack that rotation.

They already had plenty of that, but since I asked the question, I looked it up -- it appears they were righty-heavy and swapping Cruz for Halsey balances it out a little better.

Of course, this is Beane we're talking about; obtaining Halsey may have been a precondition for something else he's working on.
