Unfortunately, I don't know too much about the latter two players in the deal. But personally, I have liked Weaver since he got into the majors. Now don't get me wrong, JJ is a pretty darn good pitcher when he's healthy. The only issues here are if JJ can regain what he had before his injury. And the fact that Weaver has yet to be seriously injured. If I'm you, I would think long and hard about departing with Weaver. That may be a biased opinion but I think he's always had the right stuff for the big leagues.

I'd pull the trigger on this deal. Considering your return on investment, it's worth gambling on JJ. I'm extremely high on LoMo for the future and Chacin has a good possibility on harnessing some control. I, like you, feel Weaver just had his best season and Victorino will will probably soon start slowing down.

i would most def keep weaver/victorino. I dont trust JJ next year, why should I? How many more games does weaver need to prove that he is elite top 5? I think he has done it already.

Do not give up Weaver for Johnson. It's not worth the ulcer Johnson will give you.
