Zimmerman for Josh Johnson

Postby matty373 » Thu Feb 24, 2011 1:20 pm

AL/NL 14 teams, 12 keepers with no restrictions. 25 man rosters with one IR spot. (c, 1b, 2b, ss, 3b, of x4, ut (Infield only), sp x5, rp x2, bench x8)


Scoring is slanted towards pitching in this league, though I understand that replacement value is important. I have been offered Josh Johnson for Ryan Zimmerman. I have David Wright, so I would be ok at 3b, but with Billy Butler as my only 1b and no other good options for ut, I am worried about it. I have also been offered Posey (C,1B) for Zimmerman, but I usually don't like to have much invested in catchers. I already have the start of a good rotation (Lee, Verlander, Kershaw), but Johnson is a beast. My two concerns are Johnson's health, and the corner infield postitions. Thanks in advance for any help.

Deal or no deal?


Also, if anyone has the time, I could really use the help on keeper decisions.


My roster looks like this (I have one week to decide on the keepers):

C - empty (traded J.P. Arencibia for a early 2nd round pick)
1B - Billy Butler
2B - Chase Utley
SS - Jose Reyes
3B - David Wright
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Brett Gardner
OF - Drew Stubbs
OF - Carlos Beltran
UT - Ryan Zimmerman

SP - Cliff Lee
SP - Justin Verlander
SP - Clayton Kershaw
SP - Brett Anderson
SP - Josh Beckett
RP - Jonathon Papelbon
RP - Andrew Bailey

IR - Johan Santana

Notable bench/prospects:

SP - Michael Pineda
2B - Dustin Ackley
RP - Craig Kimbrel

Hang onto Zimmerman. Lee, Kershaw, and Verlander is a nasty top 3 of a rotation.

Then keep these 12
1B - Billy Butler
2B - Chase Utley
SS - Jose Reyes
3B - David Wright
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Drew Stubbs
UT - Ryan Zimmerman

SP - Cliff Lee
SP - Justin Verlander
SP - Clayton Kershaw
SP - Brett Anderson

Thanks for the help. You both have Stubbs and Anderson as keepers. Because closers are ALWAYS over-valued in this league, I was going to try to keep either Bailey or Kimbrel. Stubbs BA worries me a bit, as does Anderson's health and mediocre K's. I am also intrigued by Pineda. I know he is young and I have better options, but trading potential "stud" pitchers for established players is one of the reasons my team is relatively stacked for such a deep league. Still, Stubbs could easily go 30-30 this year, so...

Any other thoughts on the keepers?

Thanks again for the help. Feel free to post links to yours and I will help if I can.

New developments- I traded Ackley and Beltran for the third overall pick, and I also traded Stubbs and PIneda for Josh Johnson. Now I have 4 of the first 20 picks, and my keepers look like this:

1B - Billy Butler
2B - Chase Utley
SS - Jose Reyes
3B - David Wright
OF - Ryan Braun
UT - Ryan Zimmerman

SP - Cliff Lee
SP - Justin Verlander
SP - Clayton Kershaw
SP - Josh Johnson
RP - Jonathon Papelbon


With one spot left, do I go with Anderson, Beckett, Bailey, or Kimbrel. I have a pretty good 1-4 in the rotation right now, so I should probably keep another closer, but would like to hear what others think. I should be able to get one of them back with the 3rd pick, but I will probably need to focus on OF early. Thanks again for the help.

I think for your final pitching spot, I would take the chance on Brett Anderson. I think if he remains healthy, you should bury the competition in most pitching cat's.

Please help?
