This. I normally would have taken that deal in a heartbeat. I just need Browns bat in my OF a lot more than I need Longoria when I already have Adrian Beltre. He obviously wont keep up his torrid pace, but the runs, HR's, slugging and SB's he provides for my team are irreplaceable right now.
It's definitely a risk passing up a proven stud like Longoria, but in a non-money keeper league like this, I'm willing to take that risk. Fantasy sports are a lot more fun watching young players like Domonic Brown develop on your team.
But whateves.... I don't care when people question my fantasy baseball prowess. I was bashed for keeping Goldschmidt and Scherzer over Pujols as well.
