HAHAHAHA what?? you kidding me? do NOT do that... i would think about something like Mike Gonzalez and either Sanchez/Zimmerman for Slowey at most... i would not rid of Marmol he will be closing before long and will rack up a good number of saves with the stout Cubs roster... do not trade Josh Johnson for Slowey you would lose BIG time, Johnson himself is a #2 bare minimum and #1 at times, Slowey is nothing more then a #3 at best... i would lookin to move Gonzalez tho as Soriano will be stealing alot more saves from him with him struggling as he is right now...
help me out...viewtopic.php?t=380733
Yes, there is no way Im going to move JJohnson. I think he's going to have a huge year. wouldn't trade him straight up for Slowey, let alone throwing in Marmol.
I realize Slowey is no more than a number 3 but thats what Im looking for, depth.
I have Webb(hope he comes back strong) and Lincecum as my anchors. Johnson as my number 3 but then my pitching really drops off.
Any more ideas on what I can offer for slowey? And to the above poster, my league doesnt count holds. We have to set weekly lineups so I periodically use marmol to help with whip/era/k's. Better than using one of my other SP's who could blow up my peripherals lol
