I would say Josh Johnsons, just based on the fact he would be harder to get in the draft than Zimmerman and you have already seen what he is a capable of.
Barring injuries Josh Johnson has had awesome stuff, and being the fact that they built a pretty solid team around him he should be able to pick up more wins than Zimmerman as well.


How long do you get to keep the player for though?

I would go Zimmerman, unless you have a good team, and can afford the risk in JJ?

Well my keepers are going to be weak at SP. We keep 6 and 1 minor. I was planning on trading either zimmerman or jj plus another hitter to upgrade my starting pitching. Here is what I expect are my keepers: I also still have to decide to keep phillips or arod. Definitely going to keep 2 pitchers (real pitcher heavy league, they score more points). Verlander totaled 996pts compared to ellsbury 686.

Keepers: Teix, Wright, J upton, phillps/arod, zimmerman and JJ

I would rather have Zimmermann but if you are trying to upgrade your SP then you will get a better return on Zimm. Too many people are going to be worried about JJ to deal much for him

I would take Johnson. We know how likely he is to break down (VERY), but we also know it won't happen immediately. You could easily keep him for 5 starts, cash in, then leave the headache/risk to another owner.

Josh Johnson for me. He'll most likely throw less innings than Zimmerman, but the quality of those innings make him quite a bit more valuable imo. It's not like Zimmermann is the picture of health either.

I like Zimmerman. Less risk. I don't want my pitchers to have health concerns, regardless of how good they are.
