my Braun for Pujols

Postby Frenchiegangsta9 » Sat Apr 23, 2011 10:22 pm

Perfect challenge trade and its hard not to hit accept on impulse alone but wanted to get your quick thoughts. I would slide Konerko into my CI slot then Berkman into my OF to replace Braun. Do i stand pat or make a lateral move? its a 12 team keeper if that matters(braun is almost 4 yrs younger).
thanks guys

I would do it but I am a little biased. I think when the season is over, Pujols will still be one of the top players in the game. Really his BA isn't good but everything else looks ok. I would make the deal.

if Konerko is not in your line up currently then yes I say go for it. However if the move is a strait lateral move, then I will go against the grain here and say don't. Braun is a beast, he is as you mentioned younger, and has already shown his massive upside in a contending team, while the st louis line up isn't shabby, I honestly don't think you can beast a weeks-braun-fielder-hart 4 spot, anywhere in the league.

I'm not suggesting Albert will have a down year, I'm suggesting braun will have a career year, and hey, norm aint too bad neither ;)

I'm thinking in terms of value... I have Braun and I got him in the 2nd round (overall 17th pick - which is a steal, of course... he's most likely a top 5 player). Would Albert Pujols ever, ever, ever slip that far in a fantasy draft? Come to your senses! Hit the "accept" as fast as you can!
