Its obvious both these guys are underpaid.</P>

But can you give one a raise and tell the other to play out his contract?</P>

I don't know what kind of incentives Cruz had in his deal, but i think it was over a mill a season.</P>

Nicks deal is an average of 2.5 a year i think (signed until 2014).</P>

Neither one of these guys will sign for less than $5 a season, so a new deal is big for both of them.</P>

I wonder how careful we should be in potentially telling one guy he's getting a huge raise, while telling the other, you'll have to risk injury and other factors before you get another big payday.</P>

why would you give either one of them a new contract right now?

Let them both play out their deals.

Cruz will be a RFA at the end of next season, so he could just be tagged.

Nicks can be given an extension near the end of next season.
