The first deal is a laugher. Only if Braun were healthy and not targeted by MLB would I do it, but it's a lot of junk to get Braun instead of McCutch, and you don't need to do it.
The second deal: Lind replaces A-Gone for this year. Parker is 75% of Sale, and neither are keepers for you. Wil Myers might not be quite the uber stud he's been made out to be (Eno Sarris from Fangraphs called him Nick Swisher: I think it was Eno), but there's a great, quality rookie for you to keep, and certainly, there's a lot of trade value to him. You could easily spin him into another rookie you like better (certainly, you'd get any of the SP for him), or you can credibly keep him for next year, of course.
