trying to upgrade my pitching, and with this trade I am pinning my SS stats on Lowrie. Am I hoping for too much??
Assuming he pans out, would this be a good trade??

Only negative with him is being the 5th starter. I have a few of them right now unfortunately, and I think I would have to offer at least Sanchez to make the deal. His staff right now is Santana, K-Rod, pelfrey, perez, Josh, Kuroda, Wellemeyer, Guthrie and Fuentes.

In other words Zito becomes #5... could happen, which would be nice
Johnson was the only one I was after. I made a mistake (?) and picked Floyd in the 5th round instead of him.
