Am I a retard(for trading Braun)? WHIR

Postby TitanFan07 » Thu May 26, 2011 4:35 pm

12 team h2h points league on CBS...

Here's the deal:
I get: Zack Grienke, Jason Heyward, Daniel Hudson
I give: Ryan Braun

My pitching staff is pretty much only Brett Anderson and Tommy Hanson, the rest are streamers. My other starting OF are Justin Upton and Nelson Cruz.

Thoughts? WHIR

Yes I think this was a bad trade. Even though Greinke is very good, Hudson and Heyward have been huge letdowns in my opinion. I do not think that it was worth giving up a top-3 outfielder.

Braun is KILLING it so far this year, I think you could of netted more for him. Guy in my league just traded Braun and got King Felix and Longoria for him.

I don't like the deal. Quality is better than quantity in fantasy baseball in 90% of cases. Braun is a monster and commands a higher price than three question marks. Sorry :-t

Agreed with the rest. Combine that with the fact that you had to drop 2 players to make it fit and it looks even worse. :-o
