Braun for Cano? Am I nuts?

Postby Guttenburg » Fri Mar 16, 2012 11:29 am

1 year non keeper 14 team. I am tempted as I have a OF glut and no Jamie Weekes at 2b.

I'd try and deal one of your other OF. Cano is good but he isn't worth Braun IMO.

it's not a horrible deal, as both are first round talent. But Braun is a rare 5 cat help, while Cano will only help you in 4 cats

I think it is very close. Maybe it needs to be a 2-2 deal where you throw in Weeks but get something of need in return. It will depend on what the guy thinks of Braun and all the craziness surrounding him this off-season. Some people are hesitant about him which makes Cano and Braun even. If you do it straight up, I don't think you lose much.

Nuts? No. I sure as hell wouldn't move Braun for Cano though.

This time last year no way I would consider it. Part of me feels like if there was anytime to move Braun, this would be that exact time. Maybe get something tossed in on top too?

My thought are five category hekp is better than four categories. I'd wait it out.

Looking for your input!
