This is interesting. I would probably do it. As great as Braun is you get two VERY good players, and possibly the numbers 2 and 3. I just don't know who you pick after this trade, but you could probably package a couple other keepers and pick up another great one. I say do it.
Limited keepers, you are giving up the best keeper. I would pass.
Right now, your keepers are Braun, Sizemore, Phillips and Johnson. If you make the trade, you replace Braun with Kemp and Sizemore or Phillips with Upton - not worth it to me. What I'd like to see you get if you moved Braun would be Kemp + an INF keeper
I like this trade for you. Yes, you're trading away Braun, but I don't think Upton putting up Braun's numbers in the next couple years is out of the question (excluding average). So... I'd keep Upton, Kemp, Sizemore, and J Johnson. You'll never have to worry about drafting an outfielder again.

Forget Johnson - keep Zimmerman. Do the trade. How many OFs do you start? If you start 5, then do the deal in a heartbeat. Even if you only start 3 OFs, I would still do this. You are going to get 50 HRs, 200 RBIs, 200 Rs, 50 SBs, and a .280 AVG. Do it and don't look back.
