Josh Johnson for A-Rod? WHIR 100%

Postby bpizle » Tue Jul 03, 2012 6:47 pm

My team has been struggling, not necessarily because of one particular reason, but my roster has been a little up and down this year. Guy offered me A-Rod for my Josh Johnson, initially I think no, but it will help my bats vastly and JJ doesnt always get good run support if any at all. Key is, I play in a league that heavily values pitchers (see scoring please)... You guys please help me figure out what to do! WHIR!

I don't think I'd do it, not because it isn't an OK value, but because I think your hitting is already stronger than your pitching and I really don't like your staff after Verlander if you deal Johnson. With Hudson out, Haren kind of taking a step backwards and Wandy/Happ being nothing special, I think you had better stand pat and hope Zimmerman continues to show signs of life ;-D

Only way you do this deal is if you flip ARod or Zimmerman for a pitcher but then that really wouldn't make a ton of sense.
