Ichiro for Johnson trade

Postby Cadd » Sat Apr 23, 2011 11:14 am

I'm in need of pitchers on my team, what are your thoughts on this trade:

Ichiro Suzuki
Hiroki Kuroda

for

Josh Johnson
Jeff Francoeur

I feel I'm taking a risk on both players given Johnson has injury issues but is very good and Francoeur seems to be having a breakout year but his past track record doesn't help give me much assurance. Thoughts?

Are you getting JJ? If so then I would take that deal. You could always move JJ mid-season but he is on fire right now so well worth getting. I also don't see Francoeur breaking out but he might be worth owning.

Yes, I would take that in a heartbeat. I have Josh Johnson on my team and would never deal him for Ichiro.

Help? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=426683

I would take this as well. Francouer and Kuroda shouldn't really come into play when evaluating this trade. JJ is a stud
