I think you're giving up too much here. Braun/Wright vs Hanley/Crawford is roughly equal, but adding in Reyes puts it over the top against your favor.

no way... you're giving up arguably the best OF, an elite 3B option, and must-start SS. for an elite SS and an elite OF. 3B is way too shallow for you to give up wright. also, even if this trade does help you out, i think you can find even more beneficial trades after some work.

I like to think of trades involving multiple players as separate trades based on ADP. IF this is the case, I am putting these as Hanley for Braun and Crawford for Wright and Reyes. I like Hanley over Braun, 2 Rnd 1 picks, mainly because its so hard to get that production out of SS and I dont really see Reyes as the elite player he was a few yrs ago. I press go on that one. In most drafts I have seen, Crawford and Wright go in the early second round, and again Id rather have the IF over the OF in this one, although Wright has been through ups and downs and Crawford is as reliable as they come. This leaves Reyes, a Rnd 3 consolation prize for those unlucky enough to not get the sure fire best SS's, and if this trade goes through you wont need him every day. Id usually say go ahead at this point, but I dont see why you need to give him up when you could trade him away if this was a 2 for 2 trade. I would counter leaving Reyes out, and walk away if its not accepted, he's worth more than a toss in on a high profile swap of both teams top 2 picks

Thanks for the help guys. I told him no.

Okay, so here's an interesting wrinkle. What if I offer him Braun and Reyes only, taking Wright out of the deal? With Crawford's stock low right now, he may bite. It's an upgrade at SS, and a roll of the dice on whether it is an upgrade at OF or not.

Thoughts?

so trade is you get hanley and crawford and give up braun and reyes, right? i say absolutely. i agress with the above poster's analysis, but i think he's kind of discounting how crappy 3B is. who knows how long chipper can stay healthy.
