LOTS of risk with Braun right now, but there's also lots of reward. He was hitting pretty well with the hurt paw, so if it's truly healthy I have no reason to doubt he'll be the Braun of old. Still, there's that injury risk plus the biogenesis risk.
All of that said, I wouldn't trade Braun right now for just an elite SP. I value elite hitters much more than elite pitchers and Braun has consistently been one of the top hitters in the game. He's one of the few players likely to carry a fantasy team for months at a time. If I could get another hitter that I thought had less risk, I might do that. If I could get an elite pitcher plus either a decent hitter or an upgrade at another position (a 4-person trade), I would do that. I don't think a Wainwright would be a terrible bounty for Braun, but especially since you're in first without him already I would want to wait for the upside of the top-3 hitter or to get paid a bit more for him.A little help with mine?
