Butler's a buy-low candidate with some obvious warts. He's also got a good shot at leading the team in OBP. My thinking was he might be a nice 1 yr + option pickup. If that's his market, I'm interested, if he's looking for a multi-year deal I'm out.

His 3-year WAR and wOBA from 2011-2013 are comparable and slightly favorable to Cruz's. I'd rather take a cheap gamble that Butler bounces back from his 2014 than take an expensive gamble that Cruz maintains his 2014.
