Buy low on Josh Johnson?

Postby MaudDib » Thu Jul 28, 2011 9:23 pm

So with the news that Johnson could miss the rest of the season, it makes me wonder if it is time to buy low on him. He has a ton of talent but just can't stay healthy. If he could, it could mean championships for a number of years or it could be very frustrating. I haven't even started talks with the owner but thought I would seek advice on what people think his future might hold.

So if you were/are in a dynasty league and could get him for a good price, would you? I was thinking something that involved Rubby De La Rosa (22 year old pitcher who has shown pretty good stuff so far) along with another player.

Got a magic 8-ball? People are going to have different opinions, but the truth is you just don't know. Trading for him is a risk, but how much of one isn't clear. This isn't his first arm injury. I'd say there's a non-negligible chance he's never the same pitcher. If I were out of contention for the year in a dynasty I'd see if JJ's owner was making a run at the playoffs. If so, I might try to get him. I'm not sure about RDLR though... if you're playing for next year, why trade away a young pitcher with a lot of talent? And if you're contending, now isn't the right time to trade away people who can give you stats NOW for next season.
