Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Braun is the better player. Yes he's probably on something, but it's not cheating unless you get caught. But leave the trade active and tell him you're "thinking" about it. In the unlikely case Braun gets hurt or is caught while the trade is active, you can accept it.
Seems even in trade to me. I think of Kemp's 50/50 expectation of himself leading in to 2012 and then having the year he had. Maybe he bounces back in a big way? It's just youre asking OF for OF with near same expectations. I have Braun ranked 3rd. Kemp 4th overall. this isn't one of those 5th and 13th type trades. No clear winner/loser. until the season is played out.
The other manager is trying to play on your fears. Kemp is coming up two pretty major shoulder surgeries, and don't forget he had all those hamstring problems last year. Braun is one of the top two most valuable fantasy players. I highly doubt anything is going to come from this Biogenesis stuff. Keep Braun.
To tell you the truth, I view this as pritty pointless trade. I believe in trading players in keeper/dynasty leagues at age of 30 years old to get out of them before there value starts to drop.
Braun is there next year and kemp is there in 2 years and although kemp is younger braun may have a little more value. So I don't really see a reason to do that.
