The 10 highlighted guys would be my keepers as of right now.
I could deal Bruce & Moore for Braun. The offer is on the table. Maybe a few draft picks change hands, but those guys would be the main players.
I don't think I really *NEED* Braun, but he would give me some nice positional flexibility, since I'd be giving an RF for an LF, allowing me to use that UTIL spot in other ways. I'd also have to pick some other player among the non-highlighted players to make my 10th keeper, and the vacant UTIL spot gives me options there.
I'm very high on both Bruce and Moore, and in a league where we can keep players forever, the idea of having Moore for a decade+ is pretty much the only thing that's kept me from already pulling the trigger. But I shouldn't let that stop me from doing this deal, should I?
