it seems to me the allure of the prospects has clouded your vision; win now. Keeper owners dream of getting 2 young studs like that on a keeper team, win now. Its great to find the next great kid and have him turn into Evan Longoria; thats the fun of leagues that use prospects. But don't lose sight of the objective, win this year. Win when you have 2 cornerstones to build on. Enjoy these guys while you have them, you shouldn't even be thinking about wanting to move these guys

I do not want to move Longoria, but I'm concerned with Braun.

So say no to
This was the complete offer:

Philips, Braun Longoria
for
Fielder, Josh Johnson, Elvis Andrus, Julio Teheran, Casey Crosby, ane one of Sano/Perez

How you figure that isn't a fair offer?
Johnson is a top 10 pitcher, top 3 rounder, Fielder is a 1st round talent and 3 top prospects for Philips, I understand about the worth of Longoria and Braun...

If I decided to move just one I'm considering moving Braun...what should I ask for him out of whats being offered, I do not like having a shitty 1b!

A fair offer?
Longoria >> Fielder
Braun >> Johnson
Phillips > Andrus + prospects

If you're concerned about Braun, trade him for Fielder + Andrus and as many prospects as you can pry away (aim for Teheran, Sano, Perez)

I much rather have a proven "shitty" 1B in Billy Butler and have a terrific trio of Philips (top 5 2B), Braun (top, if not No. 1 OF) and Longoria (top, if not No. 1 3B) than sell the trio for a stud 1B in Fielder, a weak-hitting shortstop in Andrus and a supporting cast of "top" prospects, who may not see the lights of an MLB stadium for at the very least a year, and if so, will they even pan out for the price you pay?

How you can see that as a fair deal is beyond me. But, if it's fair to you, by all means, commit hara-kiri. X-I

Just know that everyone on this thread told you not to trade both Longoria and Braun or even Phillips for that matter. We all can't be wrong can we? :-?
