    Re: Why you trade for Ryan Braun

    Craze you make these threads but with no options or what you would trade. Yes we have young guys but are they what the other team.

    it WS like when we had Rizzo and he was offered up in a package by a poster but the other team had two better first basemen in the minors.

    you need to validate your proposal with some sort of believable reason why it is good for the other team and not just good for the RS.

    Love the Red Sox and enjoy the ride every year.

    Jim, you obviously don't read my trade proposals to make a statement like this. I didn't elaborate on the importance of a Braun trade for both clubs because its obvios but here are a few reasons for you to consider anyway.

     

    The Sox,

    #1 Our offense "despite runs scored" is very inconsistent and nobody fears guys like Salty, Nap, Gomes or Middy like they would Braun and Papi hitting back to back.  Our team needs another legitimate RHH every day bat, if you feel we have one please tell me who.  

    #2 Nobody on the farm fits this bill in the near future

    #3 We could trade Ells, he will never match 2011, or have the type of consistency a guy like Manny or Braun have had.

    #4 Braun has what I feel is a very reasonable contract for the talent.  Guys like Ells, Aceves, Ciriaco, Salty or Ross and even Drew are all tradeable if we can land a decent back up utility guy and move Iggy to SS.  Maybe even Gomes, if anyone wants him.  Moving forward into next season and beyond we also have plenty more salary relief to extend Braun if we feel its the right fit.

    #5 Brauns bat will more than make up for Ells and allow Bradley to play a bit more with Nava.  Victorino and Nava could also share the leadoff position for now until Bradley is ready.

     

    The Brewers, where do I begin?  They could use catching, pitching, OF, 2B and bullpen help if Braun was traded at the very least.

    #1 The Brewers would be in better shape financially moving forward after losing Brauns contract. 

    #2 The prospects and/or other players we include Could be like hitting the daily double.  I would offer the Brewers up to five players

    ... I would start by letting the Brewers choose "two or three" of the following players.  Brentz, Ciriaco, Salty, Lav or Swihart, Henry, Holt or Almanzar.

    ... Finally I would offer them "two" of the following young arms. 

    Doubront or Morales

    Webster or De La Rosa 

    Too much or two little is in the eye of the beholder.  Its also pretty hard to predict the players or salaries the Brewers or Sox would ultimately agree to take on but anything is possible.

    Doesn't make any sense when you look at people like ARod who have been proven time and time again to have taken PEDS.  It's like watching Lyndsay Lohan walk all over the court system while the normal every day person with strong parents has the book thrown at them after a single offense.

    No I still like Braun and will never put him in the same class as an ARod.  I would still attempt a trade for Ryan at some point because he will pick up the stats right where he left off unlike ARod.

    Braun failed a drug test because he took steriods to treat herpes. Why would you want to invest money in a guy with such poor judgement?

    There is no way MLB gets away with suspending those guys 100 games. They didn't actually do anything other than having a bad choice in clinics. Yes they proabably did roids but they have actually proved that.

    Conan, do us all a favor at some point and come up with creative idea, not just criticism.  I would rather be honest and expressive with our team needs than just plain ignorant.

    Ask the forum how often I have ever said that to another poster.  You are the first and hopefully the last, congratulations keep up the good work.

    It sounds a bit harsh for sure Joe.  Hopefully they all don't get the same punishment.  I can see certain guys made example of but there has to be some sort of standard set depending on the information collected.

    Yes I did and you threw out names. Ellsbury they would not want as they have a very good young CF and why would they take him when he is a F A  this yr. they have a C that is the same as Lav or Salty. As for the other players  you offer they already have similain on the team or in the minors. The only positive you offer is pitching. The brewers would want a MLB ready player not a hope and prayer kid. 

    Btw you can not offer up trades and use the same players or bunch of bananas in trade arch.

    you need to say they need x y z Id give them ABC and they fill what that team needs.

    what happens if they say we want Iggy and Jr.because they are MLB ready.

    Ok Jim, when you get a chance maybe you can explain why you feel the Brewers already have as good or better options as well in present positions.  With all due respect other than Gomez who is having a career year and the fact I didn't include Ells in the Brewers trade what exactly do you mean?

    I suggest you look at the Bs roster and stats the C and CF either have the same numbers or better and are younger. Why would they take Ellsbury a soon FA. The rest are you offer are similar to what they have except for the pitching you offer.   LOOK at their roster and minors.

    Actually, the steroids used for herpes are not the same as the 'anabolic' type.

    The steroids used for herpes are cortisone, methylprednisolone etc.  These are different from the type used to build muscle mass etc.

    Although, I honestly don't know what meds he was taking and whether even the cortisone type would test positive for 'steroid' use.

    I'm not saying Braun is not guilty...  For all we know, he may have been taking both types..
