Trade for Josh Johnson (WHIR)

Postby sigriffey » Mon Apr 18, 2011 2:57 pm

I am trying to upgrade my catcher situation and get Josh Johnson to fortify the rotation. Johnson is in the last year of his keeper contract, so if I blow the owner away I may be able to pry him. He doesn't want a catcher back because he has 3, so thoughts on this?

Snider + _________ for his Russell Martin and Josh Johnson

(I'd love any ideas on who that player(s) could be to make it happen)

12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max.

Stat Cats: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

A.) I am not worried about your rotation whatsoever, its leaps and bounds better than his
B.) Nothing about his rotation gives him the peace of mind to let go of his #1 starter

Those 2 issues, IMO, make JJ not worth your time trying to trade for. As it is, he needs a replacement for Hamilton, so Ellsbury/Snider for Johnson/Martin may work, but I doubt it. If you really want JJ I think youre gonna have to give a good pitcher, which really doesnt help you unless you really like JJ that much better than King Felix or Lincecum (which I dont). I would just try to pry Martin away with Snider if possible.

Help with mine?
