Tex for Braun?

Postby petachi » Wed Dec 01, 2010 2:42 pm

14 team MLB fantasy league
7 keepers
C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, OF, OF, UT
5 SP, 4 RP, 2 P
HR, RBI, SB, TB, AVG, OBP
W, L, SV, ERA, WHIP, QS, K

Current keepers would be:
Youk
Pedroia
Jeter
M. Young
Stubbs
Braun
Oswalt

Borderline keepers:
Granderson

I have an offer of Texeira + 3 draft picks (late 2nd, early 3rd, late 4th) for Braun + 1 draft pick (middle-late 2nd).

I like the idea of more draft picks but honestly would prefer to trade up rather than trading down since I believe I'm trading the better player in the deal.

Thoughts?

I don't think it a bad deal, I probably wouldn't do it. But in Tex you don't lose that much....A dozen SB. Some AVG, I guess his AVG bouces back to 280. If you think that you can gain with those picks, I would. Straight up I wouldn't.

Youk starting with 1st base elig only this year & your league not using corners, I'd pass on the picks & keep the slightly better player

I am luke warm about this trade. I can see what you are doing but I am not sure it is really for the best. Tex and Braun aren't that far off numbers wise but OF is not nearly as deep as 1B plus you already have a pretty good one. Think i would stay put unless you can get something else to sweeten the deal.
