Don't do the Cruz for Pierre deal. You have to actually get on base to steal, and I'm not so sure Pierre can get on enough to make it worth it.
About 3-4 teams in my league have asked about Alfonzo. The only problem is, I don't know if I want to deal him. I think Alfonzo could hit 20 HR's and have 110 RBI hitting 5th, and you know he'll bat around .300. He could also steal 5-10 bases with Snow, Santiago behind him...no reason NOT to run. Those are really good numbers for a 3rd baseman. He also doesn't strike out very often, which is a plus for someone that puts up these kind of numbers. Of the three 3rd baseman I have, Huff is the one I like the least. Most of it because of the lineup he is in. If I was convinced Huff would put up good numbers across the board, I'd put him at 1st and move Klesko to the OF, but I think Huff (when compared to other 1B) will be about the 15th best 1st baseman, whereas Klesko could still be top 5-6. Ideally, I'd like to move Huff and Cruz, and get a good 1B back. I could then pick up Josh Phelps or Danny Bautista to fill the spot. I just don't think I could get a "stud" 1B for Huff and Cruz.
