Josh Johnson and Axford for Lincecum WHIR!

Postby StaitEdge » Sun Apr 24, 2011 1:01 am

Hey Guys,

I need to make a roster move to activate Brandon Morrow from the DL and I figured instead of dropping one of my pitchers i would try to convert Johnson and the struggling Axford for a legitimate top 5 pitcher. One of the guys in my league offered me Tim Lincecum for Johnson and Axford and i wanted to know which side you thought won (Extra Categories include K/9, Losses, Complete Games, Shutouts):

I give:
SP Josh Johnson
RP John Axford

I Get:
SP Tim Lincecum

My pre-trade staff looks like this:

SP Josh Johnson
SP Trevor Cahill
SP Gio Gonzalez
SP Alexi Ogando
SP Michael Pineda
SP Max Scherzer
SP Johnathan Sanchez
RP John Axford
RP Carlos Marmol

Do it. Lincecum had a bad outing today, but for the most part, he's lights out.

I stay put. If anything you should be adding a closer, not trading one away. Axford is struggling but I believe he gets it turned around soon. Josh Johnson IMO is as good as Lincecum, there's just more concern of injury.

Johnson is easily top 5 right now. Lincecum has an expensive name (ie nickname, world series, beautiful hair, etc), So he comes with an expensive price tag. Johnson is easily just as good as Lincecum. But comes at a cheaper price because no one knows who he is. lol, quite funny actually.
You would be losing out on this deal. (or I guess I should say, you arent gaining anything)

No, I wouldn't do that deal. In the meantime, look at Fa for another closer if saves is a cat. Is Boggs still there?

Thanks for all the replies guys ;-D Boggs and Andrew Bailey are currently on the FAs. My plan was to trade Johnson and Axford For Lincecum, Activate Morrow, then pick up Bailey and drop Alex Gordon or Jed Lowerie to activate Bailey once he came off the DL. My main goal was to be able to activate Morrow while replacing Axford with Bailey. What do you guys suggest? (Notable FA RPs include Bailey, Boggs Capps, Rauch, Farnsworth, Aardsma)

My team currently sits like this:
C Kurt Suzuki
1B Adam Lind
2B Gordon Beckham
3B Jose Bautista
SS Hanley Ramirez
2B/SS Jed Lowrie
1B/3B Adam LaRoche
OF Drew Stubbs
OF Martin Prado
OF Carl Crawford
UTIL Andrew McCutchen
UTIL Alex Gordon
Bench Alex Rios

SP Josh Johnson
SP Max Scherzer
SP Gio Gonzalez
SP Jonathan Sanchez
RP Carlos Marmol
RP John Axford
Bench Trevor Cahill
Bench Michael Pineda
Bench Alexi Ogando
DL Brandon Morrow

I would do it only because I know the Giants are trying to improve their offense. I personally own Lincecum in a league and although Josh Johnson is good, the Florida summers can get brutal for pitching.
