Buy low on Braun? |Update: trade complete. Give me feedback?

Postby toof90 » Sat Jul 27, 2013 12:29 am

Im thinking of going after Braun, the owner of the team that he's on is selling him. Im pretty much done this season, im in 3rd to last place. I have Miggy and Cespedes along with Wainwright as 3 of my 4 keepers for next season. What do you guys think about the idea of adding Braun?

Ok, I made a trade for him. I gave up Zach Greinke for Ryan Braun. I plan on keeping Braun
My keepers should be Miguel Cabrera, Ryan Braun, Yoenis Cespedes, and Adam Wainwright.

Thoughts/feedback on my trade would be appreciated :-D

I like it. Whatever you think about Braun, even if you think whatever he's on is going to make him worse now that he's off it, he's perfectly capable of putting up 25-30 HR and hitting above .280, with enough RBI/Runs to be a solid 3rd or late 2nd round pick. With Cabrera, Cespedes, Braun and Wainwright you're well set up for next year. Just have a good draft and you'll be golden. ;-D

OK deal though I am not convinced that either he or Cespedes is worth keeping in a mixed league where only 4 are kept. I do not view Cespedes as a top 4 round player now and Braun is now a highly dubious pick with a lot of risk for a number of reasons. I would think next season he is not drafted in the top 6 or 7 rounds. That said, if they are the best options you have then so be it.

I think Braun is still a top 4 round player and getting him for Greinke is good value, especially if you're out of it this year. I wouldn't keep Cespedes though. I don't think he's going to become patient or less of an injury risk. .240 with 25 homeruns is not worth a top 4 selection in my opinion.

Help if you can please

I think it's a great trade for you. Braun will be a first round pick next year.

No, he absolutely won't.
