Buchholz for Braun. Trade Complete. How'd I do? WHIR

Postby B5TACKIN » Thu Jul 04, 2013 2:00 am

I just completed a trade and received Ryan Braun for Clay Buchholz. How do you guys think I did. The other day I also traded away Stanton for Verlander. Are there any other players I could piece together to get another pitcher after acquiring Braun, if so what caliber pitcher, examples would be appreciated :-b

Below is my team which is in a 10 team H2H format:

Starters (As of now)

Molina, Yadier (C)
Davis, Chris (1B)
Weeks, Rickie (2B)
Machado, Manny (3B)
Cabrera, Everth (SS)
Trout, Mike (OF)
Beltran, Carlos (OF)
Trumbo, Mark (OF)
Harper, Bryce (U)

Bench (As of now)

Braun, Ryan (OF)
Altuve, Jose (2B)
Andrus, Elvis (SS)

Starting Pitchers (As of now)

Verlander, Justin
Garza, Matt
Moore, Matt
Wilson, CJ
Detwiler, Ross

RP's

Johnson, Jim
Cingrani, Tony

Bench Pitchers (As of now)

Wheeler, Zach
Papelbon, Jonathan
Walker, Taijuan (Minor Slot)
Beachy, Brandon (DL slot)

Look I would just outright Weeks off your roster since you have Alltuve. I see no point in keeping Weeks. What UTL bats are available just wondering? Solid team there. I would maybe try to package Andrus and Beltran for someone who isn't as much of a second half risk. I'm sure you can find a very very good OF for those two. Post FA.

I like that Braun trade for you. I would consider trading one of your many outfielders for maybe a solid #2 starting pitcher or even another closer.

I'll always take a batter for a SP. hopefully Braun gets healthy and if he has his usual\expected 2nd half, you'll win that one.

Easy win unless of cause Braun gets suspended for PEDs. I suspect that is why you got him so cheap. There is quite a bit of risk there.
