Trade Braun? WHIR

Postby TitanFan07 » Sat Jun 18, 2011 2:32 pm

12 team H2H points league on CBS... Do I dare trade Braun?

I Give:Ryan Braun, Bud Norris (who I just use when he goes twice in one week)
I Get: Mike Stanton, Zack Grienke

My OF/U is currently: Braun, J. Upton, Cruz, D. Brown
My (weak) SP are: Hanson (DL), D. Hudson, Brett Anderson (DL), Bartolo Colon (DL), Bud Norris, 2 spots for 2 start SP

As you can see my already unstudly pitching staff is mostly on the DL. So do I trade the best hitter on my team for a SP I think will be studly the rest of the way?

Thoughts? Leave a link and I'll WHIR.

Not enough of a return for one of the top hitters in the game. You're getting two very good players back, but I don't consider either studs like Braun. Norris is pretty decent in his own right as well.

My general rule of thumb is to only downgrade a top-tier bat if I'm getting a top-tier pitcher in return (or two near-top-tier pitchers). I also think you're underrating Norris.

If you're looking for pitching, I'd dangle Braun for a top-5 pitcher or two top-15 pitchers, at least.

Need help trading for top-tier 1b:

You aren't getting enough for Braun.

Please look at my trade if you can, thanks!

You are definitely getting the short end of the trade here. On essentially every trade, I want to get the best single player in the deal (though there are definitely exceptions). In this case, you aren't getting nearly enough to give up Braun.

Help with mine?

Sorry Buddy, I am in agreement with others.... I actually feel there is a fair more distance to make up before I deal Braun.
