I think the value of each side makes it a fair trade. However, in your case I wouldn't do it. I don't think your pitching can take the hit. Also, he's probably just trying to dump him off because of PED suspensions, so having Braun would be a risk.

I'm not so sure that Braun is going to miss any games this year over the PED thing, barring the existence of an actual positive test result, which doesn't seem to be the case. The players' union is a powerful one, and they are almost certainly going to fight any suspensions that come from someone merely saying that this guy and that guy took PEDs. Such a fight would probably not end in the next four months.

Ellsbury, on the other hand, could miss some time in the upcoming months, due to Performance Hindering Injuries. He seems to be holding up okay tonight, though, so maybe he'll pull through.

I guess it comes down to what the FA pool looks like, pitching-wise, in your league, since you'll need to replace Harvey from there (or another trade, of course, if you think you can spare even more batting to get a pitcher.)

If you have a moment, please check out my probably easy-to-answer trade question... viewtopic.php?t=461960

no no no that would be a bad idea.

ellsbury leading off for yankees will have a great year. not only will he steal bases again, his power numbers are going to go right back up to 20+ HR and you will be glad you sat harvey for the year when he puts up a cy young season next year. especially when there is no guarantee from braun. even if braun has a great season whats the point in making the deal?

I don't really want to take a chance on Braun this year personally. I LOVE Ells in New York and he would have a 15-20HR/50SB season. Keep Ells and Harvey.

please help
