You can't give up longoria and upton for that. I would maybe try to get mcann in a deal FWIW.

I assume your countering because you do want braun? He SP rotation kinda sucks, how about Upton and Lester for Braun and Ervin Satana?

Let me get this straight...you are in a dynasty league and thinking of trading Justin Upton?

Do not do that.

If you are playinng to ]win this year make the trade. For this year you are getting better players. Crawford is so uncertain it gives the advantage to you.

I don't think there is any way he accepts. To the person who said don't trade upton, I agree, unless your getting braun for upton, then do it!

This. Upton is about as good as you can get in a dynasty. I think Braun and Upton are pretty close in value and wouldn't add Lester who can be a solid #2 SP in any league.

In a redraft league, Upton is a top 15 player at worst. In a dynasty league, you could make the claim that he is the #1 player. I wouldn't think about trading him unless I was blown away.
