No. You're not gaining enough in pitching to warrant giving up Braun. If you're giving TOP -5 OF, you should expect to see a significant improvement in your staff with that trade. I would say no. With the Mets and Reds spinning out of control and Price looking more like a dominant closer than pitcher, it's a risk.
With that said, if Vlad comes back beating the hell out of the ball, then you might be able to lose Braun.
^^^obviously if you could do ethier and johnson for johan and hanson, you'd be slaughtering... The other deals are kinda not enough for braun --- him and johan are close enough in value, I see no reason for you to have to give up more (esp. johnson) to get johan.
pass. johan for braun is fair, but when you add in josh johnson for harang and price it's way too much to give.
i'd counter with braun, uggla and johnson for johan, phillips, and one of price, harang or a backup quality outfielder(not granderson, lind, bay or quentin for example).
I also don't see that owner going for ethier and johnson for johan and hanson. ethier, pierzynski, johnson for johan, russell martin and either price or harang would work as well, if you believe in martin for the 2nd half.
