It's a tough one. You could really use the pitching but man would it be hard to deal Braun. I would be fine doing it but personally I probably wouldn't. I am not a big Pence guy and I would worry more about Braun going on a tear and really regretting the trade.

i would feel a lot better if you can trade cargo and not braun.

I would see if you could get a better OF but if you cant I would do this as a worst case scenario

didn;t even think about trading cargo, kinda figured the return I could get on Braun would be better. Was hopen to get a OF to replace and a SP by trading Braun
