i wouldn't accept your offer if i'm on the other side. in a shallow format i don't want to give the best player (braun) or give up a must-start player (e5) at a shallow position (3b). adam jones is a future star but you want braun in his prime. i doubt jones has reach his prime this young. i think the vast majority of owners would want braun over jones and consider the difference significant. and there's no way i'm giving up a hot 3b who we've been waiting to break out for years for a pitcher.

If you can make this happen it's a no brainer. take encarnacion out of the deal and it's still good for you. take it in a heartbeat.

If you can get a consensus top 3 player at any position, make the deal.

Shields will be a top 20 SP, Jones will be a top 20 OF by the end of the year.

You'd be essentially stealing Braun with E5 included (possibly a top 5 3B)

I agree you should do the trade but I disagree that Jones is a Top 20...I think he is breaking out and will be Top 10 this year....

see mine

Yeah you do that if you need a 3b. Braun is a clear upgrade at worst if you believe in Jones a slight push.

If this was offered to you, accept it immediately.

If you are proposing this, be prepared to be declined. Braun is being Braun. Top 2 fantasy stud, and will probably be #1 when the year is over.

Help please
