Ryan Braun for CC Sabathia? WHIR

Postby Choptoberfest » Sat Mar 26, 2011 2:04 pm

12 Team, H2H, 5x5

My Team:

C: Buster Posey
1B: Gaby Sanchez
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: Ryan Zimmerman
SS: Alexi Rameriez
OF: Andrew McCutchen
OF: Adam Jones
OF: Ryan Raburn
UTIL: Travis Snider
UTIL: Andres Torres

BN: Corey Hart
BN: Adam LaRoche
BN: Alexi Casilla
BN: Marlon Byrd

SP: Justin Verlander
SP: Josh Johnson
P: C.C. Sabathia
P: Brandon Morrow
P: Ian Kennedy
P: Javier Vazquez
RP: Jonathon Papelbon
RP: Andrew Bailey

BN: Anibal Sanzhez

I think I need some more power, and I've been talking with a guy who needs some pitching. He also wants one of my outfielders if he throws one of his starters in. No formal offers have been made yet, so tell me which of these trades is best:

Sabathia/Snider for Braun/Brett Anderson

or

Sabathia/Raburn for Braun/Brett Anderson

Or do you all think my power is fine and I should stick with my stacked pitching staff?

I think you could definately use Braun. just like you said your power numbers could use a bump up and Braun would give you that in Spades. Your pitching is deep enough where giving up CC wont hurt you that significantly and getting Braun will be a huge upgrade. Definately try to pull this off, it would be greatly beneficial for you.

If you can get Anderson back this is a must do; he might balk if thats the SP you want back tho

I would do either deal. Defintely try for Anderson but would take whatever to get it done. Everyone could use Braun on their team.

He countered this:

Sabathia/Raburn for Braun/Jhoulys Chacin?

Pull the trigger?

I'd be fine with making this deal. Braun is the clear stud from the group, and I believe he will have a monster year. And as a Rockies fan, I see Chacin taking a huge step forward this season and cementing himself as the Rockies #2 starter before year's end.

I agree. I would make this deal also. You are getting the best player in this deal.

Braun is the key. I'd pull the trigger.

I might see if you can switch in Snider instead of Raburn. since Raburn has 2B eligibility I think that makes him more valuable.
but I would definitely want Braun and if it takes Sabathia to get it done then that's fine.

If u can get Braun w/C.C. as the centerpiece of the trade u do it all day... Braun is a stud, top 5 fantasy player imo. Brett Anderson will fill the hole created at sp nicely. Try to send Raburn back and hold onto Snider (think he's gonna have a good year). Hope this helps... take a look at mine.
