If you can read this, you should probably leave.
My butt itches.
I wouldn't expect Adrian Gonzalez to replicate his first half stats in the second half.If Johnson is expendable then it looks like a good deal.If you need pitching though this would not work out very well for you.
I don't love the deal. I wouldn't do it
I feel like you're taking on too much money. Do you have a tight payroll? During this economy, I'll assume you do. Look at it this way:Carlos Lee 09:$18.5M, 10:$18.5M, 11:$18.5M, 12:$18.5MAdrian Gonzalez 09:$3M, 10:$4.75M, 11:$5.5M club option (no buyout)vs.Youkilis 09:$6M, 10:$9.125M, 11:$12M, 12:$12M, 13:$13M club option ($1M buyout)Josh Johnson 09: $1.4MI'm not sure you can afford it.
Do(Don't) make the trade. It would be awful(awesome) for your team.
What OF will Lee replace? Who will replace Johnson? What's the format/depth?Not knowing those details, I would rather have AGonz & Lee, but I have a deep aversion to SP. Johnson is very good, but in shallow leagues, he needs only get a tiny bit worse & he's waiver wire replaceable.That being said, my most recent trade was Ian Stewart for Kuroda (16 team fantasy scoring weekly lineups with 4sp/team, heavy emphasis on SP).
