How does this trade sound to you? Personally, I'd love to see Petit pitch with the dbacks, he seems really comfortable with them but it seems like Randy Johnson, Owings or even Davis, even if they were to struggle down the stretch, have locked a rotation spot.

Petit, in my opinion, accounting the kind of numbers he had in the minors this year, last night's performance and the experience he has gained pitching at the AAA level for the past 3 years, finally knows how to use his stuff to the best of his ability. A trade to the rangers could help the rangers in contending and it would also help out their deplorable pitching staff. Petit is a difference maker; he helped the dbacks last year in winning the division and there's no denying that. Cruz has also shown a huge improvement particularly in his walk rate and his power numbers are very high. Maybe he needs a change of scenery and with a move to Arizona, he could give the dbacks a much needed lift in their offence.
