Should I trade Braun?

Postby lineread » Sun May 30, 2010 2:28 pm

I'm in a 12 team Yahoo keeper league with my friends that has been going for 2 years now. I've kept Braun the last 2 years, he's my favorite (and best) player. Now I get a trade proposal from my friend, Braun for Lincecum and Adrian Gonzales. From a purely logical perspective, this seems like a no-brainer (make the trade). But Braun is amazing and Adrian and Timmy aren't quite themselves so far this year.

Also, at this point, my team isn't even close to contending, riding 11th place.

My Team:

C Miguel Olivo
1B Prince Fielder
2B Aaron Hill
3B Adrian Beltre
OF Ryan Braun
OF Torii Hunter
OF Shane Victorino
Util Derek Lee
Bench Denard Span
Bench Juan Pierre
Bench Brennan Boesch
Bench Rickie Weeks
Bench Aramis Ramirez
DL Asdrubal Cabrera

SP James Shields
SP Hiroki Kuroda
RP Kevin Gregg
RP Chad Qualls
P Kerry Wood
P Adam Wainright
P Kevin Slowey
P Wandy Rodriguez

It's a good trade for you. Then trade one of your first baseman for another piece.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

Thanks for the quick response Grey. I'm interested to see how this turns out.

I'd grab that deal. Winning fantasy baseball has no room for favorites!
