I've been offered Cain, Choo, Headley and Zito for Braun. I think I can do better than that since this is a keeper league, but I am also currently second and could use a few more pieces to the puzzle to make sure I finish in the money. I know he wants either Braun or Kemp and probably Braun more. He's desperate to give up so I'd like to get the most out of him that I can if I deal Braun. Please tell me what you think I should ask for to make it worth my while to deal a centerpiece of my team.
I'm thinking if I could get Wieters, Cordero, Headley, Choo, Cain it starts to be more enticing. What do you think? What should I ask for? What should be the lowest you'd accept?
C- Hundley and Fox (Suzuki on DL) 1B- Howard 2B - Hudson 3B - Wright SS - S. Drew MI - C. Pennington CI - Morneau OF - Braun, Kemp, Damon, Franceour, Rivera U - DeJesus P - C. Lee, Jiminez, Hamels, C. Lewis, Pavano, Piniero, Fuentes, Franklin, Lindstrom Bench - Rodney, Hart, Ross, Aybar DL - Roberts, Dice-K, C. Young, B. Anderson, Wood, Suzuki
His Hitters: Wieters Votto Zimmerman Headley Choo C. Gonzalez A. Jackson Lind Maybin
You'd need a lot more than what he offered to deal Braun. I would need Wieters, Cain, a top OF (probably Lind) and a closer to deal Braun. I'd try and get Wagner since he has no value to a team giving up this season.
If you could get the other deal you said you may be able to get then I'd take it. That would give you a ton of depth and you still have top hitters on your team. I wouldn't settle though, pass on the original deal.
