Trading for Johan? WHIR

Postby mzkp54 » Tue Jun 05, 2012 12:17 am

My team's been pretty awful. I need to upgrade pitching. I was offered:

I give: Brandon Phillips and Josh Johnson
I get: Johan Santana and Dustin Ackley

I'm not going to do that, but would you offer one of my 2B's for Johan straight up?

My team:
C- Ruiz
1b- Konerko
2B- Phillips
3B- Beltre
SS- Gordon
OF- Braun, Ichiro, Quentin
U- Infante, A Gordon
B- Hosmer, Brantley, Middlebrooks
DL- AJackson
SP- Kershaw, Dempster, JJohnson, Hammel, ASanchez
RP- Jansen, Capps, Casilla, Russel, Burnett

I don't like it. I think you are giving the two best players in the deal and I am not buying that Santana stays healthy all year. I don't particularly trust JJ either but I am not loving this deal right now.
