Burn #1 waiver for Josh Johnson? WHIR.

Postby jpbusta » Tue Jul 05, 2011 4:53 am

Well, I guess it's a no brainer but I don't have any insight on his health.

Is he supposed to be back anytime soon?

I currently have Halladay, Lee, Verlander, Cueto, Beachy, Scherzer so I really don't need help at pitching but I'm planning on trading one of my aces for a bat.

Leave a link and WHIR. :-)

I don't think its worth it, they've pushed back his comeback date from June, to before the all star break and now August. Even if he does come back in August, they'll most likely be out of the wild card race (if they aren't already) and will want to keep him ready for the next season. I would say no.

What are your bench bats and do you have a free DL spot?

100% yes use it on JJ. He's a top 5 SP when healthy.

Well worth the gamble of a #1 waiver IMO.

Check mine?

do you have DL spots? And if so how many?

Thats a big determinant in the question.
