I make this trade. You add a top 20 pitcher and get Crawford too? Crawford will get it going and be a top OF who fills the stat sheat. SBs Rs with decent pop and rbi?? yes, please.

This is good value for Braun. Crawford will pick things up and everyone will forget the slow start, and Oswalt is a very solid SP option.

i feel like a broken record (i seem to comment on mostly Crawford related links lol)... i am not a huge fan of Crawford this year... i think his steals (a big part of his game) will be down a bit this year thanks to people being on base in front of him... but i still do this deal... i love Braun.. but to get 2 good players like that is great (IMO)

help? viewtopic.php?t=427164

I agree. I still have faith in Crawford and really only think he's a slight step below Braun anyway. I'd do this.

Braun and Crawford should be about neck and neck production wise and to get a stud SP like Oswalt in the deal, I accept pretty easily.
