Yeah if you can afford to give up the SB's then this trade will pay off for you, Josh Johnson is injury prone but hopefully he can stay healthy the rest of the season after this latest DL stint. So he will greatly improve your pitching staff, and Nelson Cruz will give you more power then Crawford. I would make this trade, especially if I could afford losing some SB's.

Although Josh Johnson (elbow) continues to throw off flat ground, he is without a timetable for throwing off a mound.
Since he doesn't even have a timetable for throwing off a mound, he also does not have one for returning to the Marlins rotation. The inflammation in Johnson's pitching elbow is reportedly "just about gone," but he needs to rebuild his arm strength before throwing off a mound. He sounds likely to miss at least another two starts, and possibly three or four. Jun 4, 9:09 PM

I guess drop Rauch in that situation since he isn't the official closer and Crow is, but thats a pretty hard choice.

Value for value, it's a good deal for you. You just can't pass on one of the biggest bats in AL plus a CY candidate (even missed a few starts). Concerns: SB, Crawford turning around, and JJ's return (no time table for return yet). I would worry to much about JJ (he will be fine), but whether to give up that SB potential is up to you. IMO, if you can bulk up the batting (except SB) while getting the best pitcher in NL, that's a good deal.

Help me?

Zimmerman is a huge decline from JJ.
