I’m keeping Upton simply because Braun is older and is a guy with always some nagging injury. I think it was kind of overshadowed, but you mentioned PEDs and I think that is a bit notable. The most underrated aspect of PEDs is the ability for them to help your recover from injury and stay healthy. I think with age and possibly without PEDs, those nagging groin and calf injuries turn into DL time.

As for the second trade, I might try to search for a better OF. I might target a Choo or Martinez if you don’t mind an older guy along with another piece. Maybe a Dalton Pompey or Kole Calhoun if you want a younger guy. I just don’t love Garcia because he is the classic hits too many grounders to be a power hitter guy. It is a bit of the Yasiel Puig type, but without the ability to post silly BABIPs
