Would You Make This Trade?



In honor of our series with the Marlins, I propose this hypothetical trade:

 

Astros receive:

Josh Johnson

Hanley Ramirez

 

Marlins receive:

Bud Norris

Jordan Lyles

Tanner Bushue

Patrick Urckfitz

Jonathan Villar

Matt Downs

Jay Austin

JD Martinez

I would.   I think the 2012-2014 Astros can be competitive.  By 2013, Carlos Lee's contract will be off the books, Hunter Pence will be still under team control, and many of hte prospects should be in the big leagues.  I think that time frame (2013) should be the target date for fielding a contender, adn a trade like this would certainly expedite that process.
