Trade for Ryan Braun? WHIR.

Postby NikeTxGuy » Fri May 06, 2011 12:31 am

What do y'all think of this deal? Is this fair for both parties?

MY Ike Davis, Shin-Soo Choo + Francisco Cordero for HIS Ryan Braun, Jason Kubel & Denard Span. This is a 10-team keeper league. Thoughts?

I am adding Ike Davis because his current first baseman is Mitch Moreland and Davis would be a decent upgrade over him.

The difference between Choo and Braun is BIG

but Cordero for Kubel (free agent fodder) and Span (free agent fodder) would be about even.

So even though I would be getting the best player in the deal, this deal would help him fill some holes, putting Choo in Braun's spot, replacing Moreland with Davis and adding another relief pitcher for saves.

Without seeing the rest of your team, I like it personally. Braun has a solid chance of being the #1 outfielder. Choo top 10 but the upgrade is very nice. Depending on your first base situation Ike Davis isn't a huge piece to lose now and closers pot in and out. I also think Span is a nice add, and Kubel can be dropped for the next hot player

Is it enough to get Ryan Braun, since I would be taking his 2 worst outfielders in Kubel and Span? :-o
