shoulda traded bruce not braun in this deal woulda been fine

acctually i dont like it at all but it woulda been better with trading jay bruce think of what you coulda netted selling him on the fact that he leads the nl in homeruns and this is his breakout year for real finally

I feel like you could have definitely gotten more. You just got 4 players who are having decent years at best while Braun has been lights out so far.

The way I was looking at it is, my OF is still fine without Braun and I get a Closer which I could use, 2 SP with high Ks which I def needed and then Youk to take over at 3rd for ARam

you did alright on that, you could've done better around the edges.
your team can stand losing braun, like you said, and your pitching does marginally better with your new additions. then again, your pitching is first rate without the trade, and (is that casey mcgehee (sic)?) now you're locked in at middle infield. if you've already hit the button, thats a moot point though.

only thing i'd really bring to the conversation is having ALL those red sox!! i understand you're a fan, but tunnel vision can get you in the fantasy ass
(my brother's a yankees fan and we've just gotten him weaned off of his first 5 rounds being new york...now if he would open his mind a bit and draft or pick up an ellsbury or a crawford, we'd really be making some progress)

what happens if Pedroia's funk is catching, Price and the Rays get a real style winning kick start and ortiz gets injured? food for thought,

me too? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=432514

Not a terrible trade considering its a non keeper league. I still think you could've done a little better.
