Fantasy Baseball: Baseball Keeper League Trade Proposal

I recently submitted a trade in my 12 team mixed league Keeper League.  The scoring is pretty standard H2H with typical categories (R, HR, RBI, SB, Errors, AVE, OPS, W, SV, SO, ERA, WHIP).  We keep 15 players from our rosters each year - My team is as follows:

Fielders:  Geovany Soto, Prince Fielder, Martin Prado, Gordon Beckham, Ryan Zimmerman, Stephen Drew, Alex Rios, Jason Heyward, Jay Bruce, Juan Pierre, Chris Coghlan, Andres Torres, Delmon Young.

Pitchers:  Ubaldo Jimenez, Felix Hernandez, Justin Verlander, Phil Hughes, Clay Buchholz, John Danks, Scott Baker, Madison Bumgarner, Jason Hammel, Jair Jurrjens, Octavio Dotel, Jon Rauch.

The minor league guys can be stashed until they reach the major league service time and deemed MLB eligible by the league commish.  Minor League:  Mike Stanton, Jesus Montero, Eric Hosmer, Tim Beckham, Casey Kelly, Jemile Weeks, Tanner Scheppers, Aaron Crow, Jose Iglesias, Derek Holland.

I like my team - its young with lots of projection and some really good performers already headed into prime years.  Starting pitching is my obvious strength and I tend to overvalue it.  I was looking to really boost my offense with a blockbuster addition:

I give:  Mike Stanton, John Danks, Stephen Drew, 2011 Round 1 Draft Pick

I get:  Ryan Braun

The owner has the following OF players:  Justin Upton, Andrew McCutchen, Ryan Braun, Carlos Gonzalez, Shin-Soo Choo, Desmond Jennings.  He has a Middle infield need so he wants Drew but I know that I would have to wow him to come close to getting Braun (He informed me that Upton and McCutchen are untouchables for his team).

I have not gotten a response yet so I am patiently waiting - what do you all think?  Is it a decent offer?  Stanton's value is quite high in the league since its a keeper format.

Just thought I would see what some opinions were on it as I wait for his reply.
