Young/Johnson for Andrus/Masterson

Postby Ol' Uncle Munnerlyn » Mon Mar 12, 2012 4:26 pm

I've been offered that trade, Michael Young & Kelly Johnson for Elvis Andrus and Justin Masterson. I think it's a good trade, but I keep going back and forth on it. I do need a SS and pitching depth would be fantastic. What do you all think?

My roster:

C: Alex Avila
1B: Michael Young
2B: Neil Walker
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Marco Scutaro
OF: Ryan Braun
OF: Matt Holliday
OF: Desmond Jennings
UTIL: David Ortiz

SP: David Price
SP: Matt Cain
SP: Matt Moore
RP: John Axford
RP: Andrew Bailey
P: Brandon McCarthy (SP)
P: Tim Stauffer (SP)
P: Matt Capps (RP)
P: Jim Johnson (RP)

Bench: Kelly Johnson (2B)
Bench: Matt Joyce (OF)
Bench: Kendrys Morales (1B)
Bench: Mike Carp (1B/OF)

As you can see, I've got a couple of backup options at 1B, the best being Morales. But with him coming off of an injury, it just scares me to have to play him regularly. Mitch Moreland and Justin Morneau are a couple of free agent 1B I could add to work into my team, as well.

I would do that trade. Andrus is an improvement over Scutaro, and Masterson's an improvement over Stauffer. I think you have to roll the dice with Morales here- otherwise, why did you draft him?

I want your team to look like this after trade ok. Dump Scutaro for Morneau definitely worth the risk, two bounce back 1b (both capable of top 10 production each).
