Postby The305MiamiCanes » Tue Jun 21, 2011 7:50 pm

Im just curious if people think he will come back strong or should I sell high on him?

He's cooled off considerably, but I think he'll be a very solid option going forward. I wouldn't trade him unless the other party overpaid or it filled a big hole on my team.

Well I'm trying to replace Bruce for Braun. What should I package? He could use 2B/3B/SP help

Bruce + Lester or Bruce + CC could get a deal done for Braun, though as a Braun owner I can tell you the chances I'd trade him are very slim. The Braun owner in your league may not feel the same, however, so it's worth a shot.

Do you think its worth it to upgrade Braun over Bruce and lose a top SP?

I have Braun as a top three fantasy performer right now. He's going to contribute in all five categories and has the ability to carry an offense. If you could deal Bruce and either Lester/CC for him, I would make that deal.
