Giving up the first pick means you are going to pass on Braun.

I see the first 5 picks going (not necessarily in this order): 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

for his

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 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.

What about this deal?

I give #1, #29, #76 and Headley
I get #6, #11 # 49 and Matt Moore who is a 12th rd keeper for the next 2 years after this year

I would stay where you are. I wouldn't give up the first pick unless I'm getting two top ten picks in return. Even then, I would hesitate.

Thanks for help with mine.

I do not like the last one you just stated, not at all. I think the suggestion by KB would be reasonable, but I might simply pass regardless.

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.

Thanks for your help with my keeper situation.

I don't see any pressing reason to do a deal. Take arguably the best guy in the league (Braun) and you still have great picks at 13 and 14.

Otherwise, see what he's willing to offer you, and maybe counter. But I wouldn't do all the work trying to make him an offer.
