Need some serious advice (Braun trade)! WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Tue Jun 05, 2012 1:59 pm

Hey guys! I am in a 10 team H2H keeper league (normal 5x5, 6 keepers)

I have been offered Braun for Posey and Trout, as he is looking to rebuild.

I know Trout has a ton of potential, but would I be foolish to miss out on Braun?

My team:
C. Santana
Posey
Kipnis
Andrus
MCabrera
JUpton
Trout
AJones
Prado
Ackley
Kendrick
Maybin
Tulo DL

Halladay/Bumgarner/Haren/Holland/DHudson/McCarthy
Stroen/Clippar/Myers/Reed/Capps

Thanks and WHIR

Man ... if this were 12 plus teams I'd say stick with Trout. But there is so much talent that I think Braun stands out to me as a real find here. With Carlos Santana at catcher I think I take this. Just check on the health of Braun's achilles first.

i'd do this.

i'll assume you got posey and trout for below market/auction value. you're giving up some top building blocks. but, because you can keep six only, it doesn't look like you'll be diluting your overall keeper value too much. you got a TON of talent on your team to keep even without posey and trout - miggy, upton, jones, kipnis, adrus, tulo...

i know this might be a very unpopular opinion, but i'd also try to move santana over posey. this guy has been consistently good since he hit the majors.

go for the win this year and you won't be in bad shape for next year.

So...two for doing the trade, one against doing it...

Now the other question is...do I deal Santana or Posey along with Trout for Braun

He will take either one.

I think I would do this trade. Trout is a beast and Posey is strong in a weak position. I say do it.

Everyone does realize I am the one getting Braun? I would be giving up Posey and Trout

Thanks for all the help and keep it coming.

Do Posey and Trout for Braun, you can only keep 6 and trading for Braun will make that an easier decision as he is a definite keeper.
