As much is this is tempting...I wouldn't do it. In a 5x5 Braun is a stud....I am not a big fan of Garcia. You also have Hamilton, but he is very injury prone and if you trade Braun and he goes down you are screwed. You pitching is pretty good anyway. Kendry Morales could heat up and you can play him at first. Just my opinion.

Tough call. Pujols will start hitting again but like the poster above said, Braun is so valuable in a league like this. If you could get Wainwright with Pujols I think I'd probably do it. Kendrick slides into your OF then to take Braun's place.

I'd go ahead. Braun is without much lineup protection this year and I'm high on Pujols, even with the terrible start to get going in a big way. It leaves you a bit thin in OF between Kendrick/Morales for that OF spot but Pujols will make up the difference IMO.
