Like your team. I would keep K.Johnson cause 2B are a little thin and Kelly is a nice back-up/ fill-in for Pedroia if he is getting hurt (if your WW is full of nice 2B - its worth a gamble). Maybe Berkman and a Pitcher
It would be nice to know what you did with our advice - so please write a short reply
I do think you're giving up a lot of power, but you have a lot of power on your team still. I like the extra SP help. Johan just hasn't been the same, if he can't get back to dominating form then this trade is going to help you out a ton. I don't see Johnson as a sell high, he's a legit 25+ HR hitter in that park and lineup. Well worth it though for 2 solid pitchers.
I thik the immediate boost to your SPs, especially with Anderson on the DL, is worth it. With Miggy and Pedroia in your lineup, you'll almost never play either of these guys, and even though Berkman is under contract til 12 and Miggy is ony til 10, are you really planning on making Berkman your 1B next year? Probably not. I'd pull the trigger - makes you significantly better today without robbing tomorrow.
I like the boost to the SP ud get. Kelly johnson seems to be this years aron hill, but you dont need him with pedroia. I dont like berkman comin off of surgery so i think the SP side that ud get would really help your staaff since some of it seems kinda questionable
