In response to SpacemanEephus' comment:
Brown is an enigma to me. Looked like he was going to be a superstar. All the tools. Hasn't really gotten there. Maybe his make-up, maybe he is what he is. Either way, I can't imgagine he is an upgrade over anyone we currently have or is in the farm pipeline.
Yup, I'm curious to see what people think he'll do that we won't get out of Gomes/Nava.
If we're going to trade for someone, I'd like to see a material improvement somewhere. But that's not what I am here for. Suppose we had the following-
Nava (Phi) .303/.385/.445/.831 WAR 1.8
Brown (BRS) .272/.324/.494/.818 WAR 1.6
So, if Nava was currently on Philly, with better stats than Brown, would we be having threads about trying to acquire Nava from Philly? The point being that Nava has been better than Brown for his career, better last year, a better fielder, nominally a Switchitter, and can play RF in a pinch.
Why would anyone want to trade for Brown to replace Nava?
