Chris Davis for Ryan Braun

Postby silentjim » Fri Jun 28, 2013 7:13 am

Had a new manager take over in a 20 team dynasty league and I of course decided to go after him in trades. Sent him a nice note saying I had interest in Braun, Wainwright, and Josh Hamilton and would be interested in any deal as long as it made sense for my team. This is a 20 team, 25 man roster, dynasty league that counts holds and OPS and starts and has some slightly odd starting positions (see roster below). Anyways, his first offer to me was his Ryan Braun for Chris Davis and Ryan Cook. For some reason I knew he was going to target Chris Davis. So the question is, is Ryan Braun (injury and PEDs issues) worth getting for Chris Davis who can't possibly keep this up for seasons to come? Thoughts? Additionally I'm stacked at 1B

I see no reason why Davis couldnt keep this up. I mean obviously not at the same pace, but at least maintaing his current "best power hitter in the game status".

He's had 500+ AB's once in his Major League career which was last year and he hit 33/85. His one 500+ season in the minors... 36/118. He's got a solid lineup around him so he could continue to get pitches to hit and keep this up.

This is a no brainer with no PED issues but with it being a Dynasty league I think I'd hang on to Davis unless you can get a little more with Braun. No telling how this thing plays out for Braun's future.

Could you try to go answer mine now? Need some advice.
