Postby jlfn56 » Tue May 10, 2011 10:36 pm

MY Braun for his AGON

OF are ethier, granderson, sizemore, quentin

my current 1b is konerko but I culd put him in one of the utility spots

Am i stupid to trade 5 tool Braun for Adrian Gonzalez?

I'd pass. Braun is an elite five category contributor and a top five fantasy player. A-Gon is no slouch, obviously, but straight up he's not enough for Braun.

keep braun.
there are very few players that can help you in every category, and even fewer who dominate in 4 of those.
Adrian is elite but their are 6 other 1B just like him, and 5-6 others who are not far behind.
Braun is in a class of just 3 OF's that contribute in every category and have 30/100 power. Himself, Kemp, Cargo.
dont make that trade.



can you post your thoughts on my situation?

I love AGon, however like everyone else said, Braun will outdo AGon. Braun is a top 5 fantasy player imo.
