Quick rundown:
-Traded for Class-A pitcher
-Can play SS (meaning Christian Guzman can stop embarassing self and just sit) and 2B (relief for Vidro, who's playing hurt)
-Hitting .268 in 81 games for SF (.301 OBP, 5 HR, 19 RBI)
-Batting .314 vs. leftys

I belive Washington now leads the leauge in 'Deivi' factor.

Cruz is hardly the impact type bat the Nats need but still he'll be a big upgrade over Cristian Guzman who has been a bust.

There really are no impact bats available anyway (especially with the Griffey rumors finally squashed), so they're taking their help where they can get it. Its a good move for them.

Nat fans have been cruel and unkind to Guzman.

Guzman's bat has been cruel and unkind to Nat fans.

Besides his performance in the Kris Benson/Mike Jacobs game, Guzman has been HORRIBLE.

Booing and razzing the guy into oblivion is stupid and mean. I don't care if he's hitting .090. It's been a nasty thing to watch.

He could always forego the MLB salary and skip all the booing.

Yeah, right.

That's true, since he makes all that money, it's perfectly fair to verbally abuse the guy every time he steps on the field.


SC = high
