Josh Johnson + McGehee for ARod?

Postby cs3 » Thu Mar 17, 2011 3:39 pm

is this a no brainer?
A guy is willing to trade his Arod for my JJ + Mcgehee.

I have pretty solid SP so i think i can take the hit there:
Halladay
Johnson
Latos
Marcum
Dan Hudson
Hellickson
Chacin

and somehow Garza is a FA so i can pick him up as a replacement

this should be a quick accept, right? RIGHT?
am i missing something or is McGehee in line for some serious regression?
only 6 guys in the past 2 yrs have put up 100+ rbi with les than 30hr and lower than .300 BA
and JJ is a stud, but still a significant risk for a #2?

the trade now in my inbox is:
JJ + McGehee
for Arod + Buccholz
still no deal?

i think having Halladay around allows me to take the SP hit, no?

Is this a keeper league? if so, how many?

I like Arod's chances of a nice bounceback, his hip is supposed to be truly healed this season.

Therefore, if it is a one year league, I would do it and then find a way to add Garza as well. Buchholz + Garza would definitely cover JJ IMO, especially with his injury risk. I had Wainwright with a similar injury risk and he's already gone down.

Deal is complete.
i dropped a bench player and did add garza too.
I plan on trying to package garza and chacin/hellickson for a pitching upgrade, someone like haren/weaver

its a keeper league but we only keep 3
this year mine were Halladay, Cargo, Posey
(and i only kept Posey because due to a technicality that nobody foresaw, i had to let Hanley walk)
