I'm not sure how relevant those stats are at this point in time. In fact, I don't think they're relevant at all. Not to mention CarGo is playing in Colorado now so the first 85 games of his career, which he played in Oakland, are meaningless for the sake of the argument you're trying to make.
It's quite simple. People are reaching, and claiming CarGo has the higher upside. Braun's rookie year > CarGo's best season to date. I'm just making a counter argument, is all.
BTW, playing in COL is pretty relevant. What would CarGo do if traded to, say, San Diego? We all know what Braun can do at Petco...
Do you expect CarGo to be traded some time this season/
No, but the OP doesn't mention a time frame, just that we have to make a choice "going forward." His career is still less than halfway done, most likely, meaning even a year or two from now he'd be spending half of his career in another city. Ryan Braun is locked up through 2020 I believe, and has restaurants throughout the Milwaukee area, let alone took a little less money to sign an extension with Milwaukee instead of being greedy and waiting to get more via free agency.
