I think so... Upton's been ridiculous, but only with no one on base... Call me crazy, but his splits with and w/o RISP scream "choker." But that might be just me, and he very likely might get enough chances in non-clutch situations to be a huge asset. But Braun? Yeah, you gotta.

There is probably only 3 or 4 players I would trade Justin Upton for. But Braun is definitely one of them. Is all about the floor. This is a good deal for you.

Before you pull the trigger on this deal post his roster as well.

We could see the team but I don't know what it could change. I would probably take the deal before he changes his mind. There is a chance you could squeeze out a bit more but I don't know if I would chance it.

I was thinking instead of doing a straight up trade maybe you could do that 1 for 1 but also acquire another player or two from him as well and upgrade your overall team with getting rid of some of your weaker links.

Think you could use a closer upgrade as well as maybe one more decent SP.
