Pass.

Unless you have inside info that a suspension is coming for Braun.

Braun has a track record and Trout does not. I would say that Braun for Trout straight up should be fine. Problem is that anyone who has Trout thinks he is the next coming of Christ after 1 monster season. I would hold off all together at this time. IF Trout starts off a bit slow, then offer Braun for Trout straight. Problem there is if trout is off slow, you may not want to gamble for him. All in all Braun will produce for a long time and I would pass.
