You can keep a player forever....No consequences.

Team A - Receives Braun, Fielder, Neal Walker

Team B - Receives Votto, CarGo, Kipnis, Goldschmidt, and C. Sale

I'd take my chances with team B.
Braun and Fielder vs. Votto and Cargo is close for me. Walker vs. Kipnis, Goldy and Sale tips it for B.

Pretty close but I would probably take B side as well. The stars are very close with the Braun side slightly ahead but the side getting Kipnis and Sale pushes the scales to the other side and helps with the loss of Braun.

I agree with Pogo and Maud. B is the winner by a small margin, with primarily Sale tipping the scales in that direction.

Depending on league format... I'd disagree. Depending on how many keepers as well. While it's nice to get Goldy and Sale at the back end, Votto doesn't look to be the same Votto as old and at the same time, (H2H Leagues, CarGo has missed the playoffs the last two seasons). I'd rather have the Braun and Fielder side at the top.

Your points on Cargo/Votto are valid, but that's why this is even close. Sale/Kipnis could both be huge stars next season, and their reward far outweighs the loss on the Braun/Fielder end of the deal. Even Goldy offers an extremely nice upside for the future, while Neil Walker is basically a waivers guy. This trade is good enough for short-term, and a mega-jackpot for a lifetime keeper.
Goldy is King.
