Say Cabrera has a standard Cabrera year and goes 110/35/110/1
What is Cespedes going to do? He's been awesome so far, but I would expect maybe a 70/25/90/20 season from him MAX.
Say Braun has a standard Braun year and goes 105/30/110/25
I'd expect 70/25/90/2 from Sandoval MIN
So I think that for this year, you win this trade because even though the stats are pretty much the same, Panda has much less risk than Cespedes while also having a higher ceiling. However this is a keeper league, so who has more value as a keeper? I'm actually more inclined to go with Panda, keeping in mind that he has more MLB experience and is younger. I'd probably pull the trigger on this trade. The only thing that I don't like going forward is giving up Cabrera as a 3B keeper next year. It would be sweet to keep Cabby, but Braun's pretty great too.
