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

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!
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.
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?
