Josh Johnson for 3 starters? WHIR!!!

Postby canadastar » Mon May 09, 2011 12:32 pm

Hey guys of the baseball world, a trade was proposed to me as such: my Russell Martin, Jed Lowrie, and Derek Lowe for his Josh Johnson. Does this make sense? On the wire are a recently waived Eric Hosmer (I have #3 waiver priority), Fausto Carmona,

My team has struggled with pitching lately, adding arguably a top 3 pitcher to my team would undoubtedly help, no?

(11 team mixed Roto league, 1 catcher plays)...any help appreciated!! WHIR!

My team...
C Russell Martin
C Carlos Santana
1B Justin Smoak
2B Ian Kinsler
3B Alex Rodriguez
SS Starlin Castro
CI Chipper Jones
MI Jed Lowrie/Elvis Andrus
OF Carl Crawford
OF Carlos Quentin
OF Jay Bruce
OF Jason Bay
OF Domonic Brown (just dropped Swisher)
Util Travis Hafner

SP's CC Sabathia, Chris Carpenter, Liriano, Pineda, Jhoulys Chacin, Bud Norris, Bartolo Colon, Derek Lowe
RP's Chris Perez, Sergio Santos, Ryan Madson

His team: Ruiz/Mauer, Fielder, Cano, Alvarez, Gaby Sanchez, Callaspo, Pence, Rasmus, Carlos Lee, Moreland, Adam Jones, Melky....pitchers Josh Johnson, Verlander, Buccholz, Danks, Wade Davis, Neftali Feliz, Kimbrel, Capps, Rauch, Lindstrom.

Yep do the deal -

I just traded JJ for Montero/Walker/Morrison - I needed the bats and I still have SP depth.

JJ is an elite SP option. You're giving up a few nice pieces, but the value of them is still a lot less then JJ's.

Yes. Yes. Do it now.

I flat out dropped Lowe, so that's a wash. Go pick up Hosmer. Now it looks more like Josh Johnson and Hosmer for Martin and Lowrie. That's a no brainer.
