I think it "hurt" both of us to make that trade even though it improved both of our teams. You may think that it was ill advised but I think it was pretty fair. As far as whether Cruz could've been that difference for you, well the only time he missed after our trade was from 8/29-9/13. So, he gave you 88 abs out of roughly 130 possible and in those 88 ab he hit .284 with 14 runs, 4 homers, 12 rbi, and 3 sb. That's not bad for him. I don't think the 40 or so missing abs would've made THAT much of a difference.
