I have the first pick in our keeper league draft and the guy with the 6th pick is looking to swap with me.
He also has the 11, 18, 23, 34 overall picks.
I have 13, 14, 28, 29
What sort of deal should I ask for?

I wouldn't give up a top pick in a keeper league. That being said, the below deal is pretty good if you can get it. Longo & Tulo still have some upside and you have a chance to build a deep team to win this year.

I see the first 5 picks going: Braun, Cano, Pujols, Votto, Cargo.
Which means you are probably going to have to take a guy like Longoria, Tulo. Thats a pretty big drop.
I would give him my 1, 28, 29
6, 11, 18.
Thats what I would start with. If he wants Braun he is going to have to pay especially if the first round pick he is giving back to you is the first one after a dropoff in talent.
I'd keep the top pick personally. The scenario that Kimbos mentioned seems reasonable, but you are going to going for a deep team in that scenario. I'm on the fence for 3/17 for 1/28 as again you are dropping down a bit. If a person wants Braun that badly they should expect to overpay slightly.
