Trade for Braun in Keeper?

Postby creepingdeath » Mon Aug 12, 2013 11:54 pm

The other team is asking for what should be a high 2nd round pick in 2014, which is actually an 8th rounder after the 6 keepers.

Here's the league.

13 team, 7x7 roto, 6 man keeper $ league.

R,HR,RBI,SB,TB,AVG,OBP,W,L,SV,BB,K,ERA,WHIP

Last season I finished 1st. This season I am in 3rd, a few points out of 2nd.

C-McCann
1B-Ortiz
2B-Infante
SS-Reyes
3B-Trumbo
OF-Harper,Werth,J.Upton
Util-Dunn,Arod
BN-Konerko,E.Young,Morneau
DL-Berkman
SP-Hamels,Gio,CC
RP-Street,Reed
P-Mujica,Melancon,Ziegler
BN-Kazmir,Lincecum,Arroyo

I would likely be keeping.
Harper, Reyes, Upton, Braun, Hamels, Gio

What do you guys think?

I think I would do that trade. Who would you cut from your current keepers though?

Help with mine?

I think this is a good deal for you. I'd take it.

Assuming you don't need the help this year, and you can handle the dead spot on the roster, I do the deal. Bruan for an 8th rounder is great value, and he becomes a definite upgrade on your keepers. Otherwise, you'd be stuck keeping a guy like Ortiz probably. Braun is a much better keeper than Ortiz.

I'd jump on that. Getting braun for a low 90's pick would be pretty good value and even if it turns out a lot of his success was the result of PEDs and he flops miserably it won't be a complete disaster and it has the potential to turn into a huge windfall.

You are really giving up the value in your low 90s pick and CC for Braun, but I still think you go for it. Braun (even possibly down) is well worth upgrading for next season assuming you can handle the remainder of this year (if it is even a concern).

Any help/thoughts is appreciated on mine: [url]
